I have $500 for a laptop for work and travel but would also like to be able to play some less demanding games on it. I know $500 won't get me much graphics performance but what would be the best bang for my buck? I am thinking an apu and 8gb of ram would be my best bet. Something like this Dell
The $500 is bit of a pipe dream. But this is what I found. It should play your basic games (top down 2d shooter, puzzle games. A10 cpu and bit better graphics than the dell to boot. 17.3" screen. Only down side is its full of hp bloatware, so you'll have to take that off. And the 5400 RPM HDD is a cap in the knees, but you could always replace with an SSD down the line. This should get you by.
Well it is a work laptop first and gaming second if it can handle it. Boss gave me a budget and that's it. I'm sure I will be able to play binding of Isaac and games similar to that, just want recommendations to get the most out of the 500. I may pick up a 128GB MX100 with my own money just to speed it up a bit.
