He said that old computers could remove e battery, I have a 1995 computer and it is a SUPER bulky laptop and you can remove the battery. But after 23 years it's shot, so I just keep It off and use it as a decoration.
Ravenpaw2 fireheart (11 days ago)
By the way it is 16 pounds and is a desktop but you can put it in your lap

The majority of people suggested a used laptop, because the majority of people who watch this challenge are smart enough to realize that chrome os is horrible.

Krešimir Jurilj (16 days ago)
there's also an added benefit with HP Elitebook. Docking station, 3G card, build quality, cooling performance, swappable battery. Not to mention you can pull out 3G card out of it and pop in a PCI-E adapter. I have it hooked up with GTX 1050 next to my docking station.
Alvin Tan (17 days ago)
im currently using my asus n56v connected to a 24inch full hd monitor. Gaming and doing mostly everything. A cheap old laptop is the way to go. I upgraded to 16gb hyperx ram and 240gb ssd and its like a new laptop
Guilherme Bertho Luiz (18 days ago)
If you change the HDD for a SSD it will go much better

Nick (21 days ago)
My elitebook doesn't even charge anymore. Bought 3 years back for 380 CAD. Plugged into an Acer 22inch monitor, kB and mouse. It's an okay setup for under $1000 Canadian. I don't game any more, but it can run rocket league at like 30fps on low settings. Video editing is difficult. Takes 15 minutes to render 1 minute of 1080p footage. It runs just fine for my use. I've wanted to switch to a chromebook but I don't want to have to use something like Adobe clip or something from the play store. So I need help. Anyone know of a cheap laptop that can handle minor video editing that's reasonably light? Thanks

I used that Samsung chromebook to take my final today. I vouch for its cheap feeling, but it’s actually pretty fast.

Siiiigh. "Oh look, this HP laptop that wasn't even standard market 2 years ago has all these ports that a lot of corporations required. Lets laugh at a laptop that met like 18 standardization lists" Austin, you fucking tard, its a work laptop not a god damn meme. Its not a netbook like what you peddle. Its a fucking workstation.

Sony PlaySt (1 month ago)
My laptop is insulted by the weight comparison. I'm used to heavy laptops, and having the 8470p is very handy. Still, I need an SSD... and by the way, the price of it was over £1000 in the UK, too. We're not missing anything when it comes to price here. Great video though!

Can or rather how well does the HP Stream handle skype calls? It's literally the only thing I would need for the laptop to be able to do decently well.
EpicTaleROBLOX (1 month ago)
Well, if you want to run fun windows apps, there is a site called Yellow Circle. For fun online access on your software it is $1 and will run windows, Linux, and Android. I use the free plan.

Old video so nobody will see this but...Lenovo Thinkpad X230. You get an i5, normally 4-8gb ram, the best laptop keyboard about, and the durability of a freakin rock, even if it's a little chunky by todays standards, it's smaller than the used laptop in this video. Personally I have an x230t which has full touchscreen and an ips panel, the regular x230 can be had under the $200 budget easily.
YveltalDarknessWing (27 days ago)
I'm seeing it.. and I really need an upgrade from my slow ThinkPad T420 hand-me-down that heats up in 5 minutes and burns my lap off, AND is a brick by itself, not to mention adding the cooling pad that is pretty much required... I'm going to consider this option.
nassimishere (1 month ago)
I can tell y'all this from experience, never get a HP probook, just don't. Get a Thinkpad or something.

I got a used Core i7 elitebook for $155 off ebay and I really wanted to try it out, it's got 8 cores and 8gb of ram. Wow :O It runs kinda warm, but it feels like it takes care of my needs. I wanted to be able to run Second Life and lay in bed.

I would recommend the ASUS vivobook e200ha. Cherrytrail CPU 4gb of ram. Runs win10. While it has 32gb sad, it does have a microSD slot. For everyday computing on the go it feels quick. Is light. Has great speakers for a laptop in that price range. Recommended

i've actually pick up a thinkpad r61 for 35 € and i've upgrade it for something like 50 € so i thing the refurbished laptop are the best option (for me)

I'm literally watching this video on a refurbished EliteBook 8470p. Only difference is that mine has a SSD and does not have a modem. Also, I have a resolution of 1600x900. However I have to disagree with Austin about the trackpad. Maybe his is faulty, but the trackpad on mine is fairly good, and can easily be compared with the trackpad of a 2012 Macbook Pro. And with the click of one single button on the backside, you can remove the underside cover which lets you upgrade the harddisk, memory, dvd-drive, processor, wifi and bluetooth-card. I have never seen a laptop that is as easily upgradable as this. So yeah, it's heavy and it's thick, but it's still a powerhouse with more ports and upgradability than any consumer laptop of 2018. It's a comuter that was made to last. And it's also made of aluminium, even the parts that looks like plastic. So this is without a doubt my recommandation.
