Someone asked me to find a 15 inch laptop for around $500. I spent 6 hours looking on 9 different websites and this was the best non-flip non-touchscreen computer I could find for the price. Note: I created another post for a flip/touchscreen.

PROS: Fastest i7 cpu in this price range. 8 GB of Ram with 2 Cores, 4 Threads @3.4GHz Kaby Lake (2017)
CONS: Non-flipping computer no touch screen.
Thoughts: If you are ok without flip screen and touch screen this is a nice computer for the price.

without touchscreen or hinged monitor, for $429.99. Thanks to MattP725

7500u processor is 2 cores/ 4 threads https://ark.intel.com/products/95...apkw=7500u

HQ models like 7300hq are 4 cores.

You can get a similar model on Amazon that has a 256 SSD and a dedicated GPU, though not that great, 940mx, for about $40 more.
I typed incorrectly typed i5-7500 when I looked up the CPU and got the incorrect specs. Since this is an i7-7500u. Thanks for the catch. I updated the post.

This is the correct compare of this pc:

Do you have a link to the Amazon one?

Lol.

Might have been cheaper to just give them cash to shop around.

Ya I was a bit confused, not then again some people owe "favors" in certain circles, if you know what I mean....

Anyways seems like a good deal but from experience I hate having i7 on laptops unless you actually need it... The rest, noise, just unnecessary. I like too focus on the clock speed and memory, and of course the quality of display and keyboard instead with an i5 or comparable AMD.

Give a person a fish and he'll eat for a day.

Teach him to use the Internet and he'll never bother you again.

Teach a man to build a fire, he'll stay warm for hours.

Set a man on fire, he'll stay warm for the rest of his life.

The processor is pretty pricey if purchased separately but here's some things to get your started: There were some nice rigs on newegg but about $200 more then you wanted to spend.

Also, lenovo has a sale but it ends in a few hours:
Best Desktop Computer Deals - Desktop PC & Package Deal OnlineLenovo takes up to 44% off a selection of its laptops, desktops, and more during its Black Friday in October Sale . (Select deals require coupon code "BFINOCT"; they're marked as such on the sale page.) Plus, coupon code "SAVEXTRA5" cuts an extra 5% off select orders. (It doesn't stack with the code above.) Plus, all orders bag free shipping. Deal ends October 11.
See all Lenovo Coupons.

If I had the money, I know its more than double your price range but throwing it out there. I would get this one:
