Laptop just died! Pls help me find a workhorse laptop for under $700
Any help would be appreciated. My 5 yr old HP-G62 just died on me. Besides the cooling fan issues, it worked very well. My needs have changed so I had hoped to replace it last BF but didn't spot any worthy deals.
I'd like to keep the budget at $700 but could go slightly over if necessary. I'd be using it for:
- Internet 24/7 with over 100 windows opened daily.
Tons of social media interaction
-watching, uploading/downloading video files.
- Editing video files (nothing above HD)
- Photoshop and resource hogging programs.
- Like my HP G-62, something that will be able to last for the next 4-5 yrs.
- Large hard drive
- mobility isn't an issue
- touchscreen & i7 would be cool.
- Prefer HP or Lenovo
Hoping to borrow a friends lappy until Memorial Day, but would like to grab something asap.
