Ok… but is
it performance that will be noticed for a blind person
running an M.2 SD SSD and 16GB of ram?
If all they
are doing is web browsing and email and office work
how much will integrated graphics kill performance?
think for that tasks having a built in GPU will harm
enough for it to be noticeable.
if the person doesn’t have $900 to spend? I suppose
there are payment options you could pay it off over
time but some don’t want to do that.
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.

the only thing but past that I agree with you on
so sure I agree with
price, I haven’t priced new ones and s specked them
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.
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.

You aren’t using any memory intensive
applications that might bring you even close
to using 8gb of RAM. I haven’t priced
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

What do you do with

Will you be

good battery ?
