Laptop for MS-Office type use

17 14 January 22, 2018 at 10:01 AM
Need a new laptop. I have been using a Pentium for the last 6 yrs and it is starting to show it's age, plus one display hinge got broken during travel and I don't think it is worth spending repair money on. Here is what I do with a laptop

1. Typical use is MS-Office and web browsing, email etc. Zero gaming. So display quality is not an issue, plus see item 2 below.
2. Would like an HDMI out because I plan to use a 50in TV as my monitor when I upgrade my current 1080p to a 4K TV.
3. Would like an i7, no particular reason but I typically hang on to my laptops for 5-8 yrs and I figure an i7 will last me that long.
4. Doesn't have to be new.
5. Already have a 25GB SSD which seems to be all the disk space I need. So I can buy a laptop with a HDD and add my SSD to it.

Would like to stay under $500. I have looked at and they seem to have a few choices always. Any suggestions on what else I can try. It seems after the christmas and new school semester rush the laptop deals have dried up.

Appreciate any help you fine folks can provide.
