  34. Carmine Quellcrist on November 25, 2020 at 9:44 pm

    bruh in what universe is starting price 350 a budget laptop.

  35. Jon Slobodjanac on November 25, 2020 at 9:46 pm

    i don’t have that much money for 700 $ laptop

  36. Matt Wolf on November 25, 2020 at 9:49 pm

    These are all expensive, if you just need basic tasks done (Netflix, PowerPoint, Word, Email, web browsing with only a few tabs open etc) you could find a cheap HP laptop for around $300 and be fine with it. If you are wanting to do more complex stuff like photoshop, video editing or some low end gaming than that’s when you want the ones in those video.

  37. Blox Dog on November 25, 2020 at 9:51 pm

    Not really budget…..I consider budget as $500 or less.

  38. Little Timmy on November 25, 2020 at 9:51 pm
