Can't only post link from cell.

Anyways, needed decent budget laptop that can play some Sims type games and whatever else my wife might wanna play. And also just an overall decent laptop for school/everyday use.
And seems to have a very nice processor for the price.
Thoughts??

Looks like it's going to be slow. Processor isn't very good, from the looks of it.

Usually people ask about a laptop BEFORE they buy it.

Great for the basic stuff, gaming might be an issue especially sims.

Great for the basic stuff, gaming might be an issue especially sims.

They were able to run BF 4 and Skyrim among other games at that level on mid settings.

Although we won't be playing games close to that level.

Basic daily to-do laptop.

Max the RAM and throw in an SSD...will do most things well.

Integrated Intel video card will be the major issue as its not really a gamers vid...but again if you are playing lower level games and low level resos...You might get some game time.

Could you have done better?...of course...worse? very much so.

User and move on OP...nothing is great for long.

only once in my life i bought an AMD laptop to save money and it was a big disaster..always heating, terrible battery life, loud fan noise etc.
motherboard burned 3 times and finally i gave up

that was more than 5 years ago..hope AMD chips are better now.

will probably be good for every day use. not so much for gaming.
