Looking for laptop

27 14 November 21, 2017 at 10:27 AM
I really use this only when I need a real keyboard, work on spreadsheets, etc. Web and daily mail and such are on a tablet. Large storage is not necessary. Current laptop is a 6 year old HP with a 128 gig ssd and extra memory.

In order of importance to me

Budget - less than $500

Reliability- want it to last

Longevity - fast enough to last 5-8 years

Screen - at least 1024 and 15". Touch not required

Processor - 7th or 8th gen (see longevity above) Intel or AMD

Drive - 256 gig SSD much preferred (see longevity above) but not a deal breaker as I can add later. 256 gig hard drive acceptable.

Touchpad - need a good touchpad, I rarely use a mouse.

Memory - fast, only need enough to run the OS and light programs (browser, Outlook, Excel) fast. 16 gig?

Battery life - 8 hours preferred, but not deal breaker.

Timeframe - not too important but would like soon
