off over time but some don’t want to do that.
I would never buy used equipment that if I could get new.
There is no garantie what condition it was used as. And
discrete graphics it is simple. Intigrated graphics reduce
system performance, as well as the ram. If you have discrete
graphics,. browsers, and other apps use the GPU for hardware
acceleration and to improve performance. So graphics isn't
just for gaming, but the processor itself is useful, and
doesn't add much to the price. An entry level graphics is
fine, like the rtx 2060 or 3060 now.

Tell me why a blind person would need
That’s the only thing but past that I
agree with you on everything else.
I’m not so sure I agree with
You on price, I haven’t priced new ones
and s specked them out.
I know on BestBuy or other places if you
go refurb, you can get some pretty good deals on yesterday’s
wine that is good enough.
This is incorrect. 8 gb is ok, but 16 is even better. With
no apps open, my win10 system eats about 5.5 gb. That
leaves very little for anything else if I used 8 gb. True a
powerful computer probably isn't required, but an 800-900 or
so good laptop is worth it for the responsiveness and
pleasant experience. A minimum of dual channel ram, an SSD,
discrete graphics, and an i5/R5.

various laptops or kept up with different models
for a long time, but I doubt you will have to
spend more than five or six hundred dollars to get
a laptop that will fill your needs well. I’ll let
others discuss the question further.
