I finally got my shit together and bough a laptop.

My requirements for a laptop was that it should be great for anything as simple as web browsing, writing, to more complicated tasks such as running virtual machines, programming in Python and Visual Basic(stfu C++ elitists, nobody loves you).

My previous laptop was a Lenovo Thinkpad Edge 14 that i got for super cheap when I started my first year of secondary school, It was a decent laptop for word processing and web browsing, but it quickly became too weak as my requirements and skills grew into complicated things such as virtual machines and multimedia(Music Production, Image manipulation etc).

So I went to the local electronics store to test laptops, the way I test laptops is to actually go up to the laptop, turn it on and fuck about with it for awhile, maybe play a youtube video, check how smoothly it changes windows and how fast the file explorer pops up when you try to go to various folders.

I feel like its important to actually physically test a laptop before buying it, as you can’t really judge how you will like a laptop by watching videos, reading reviews and spec sheets online, you have to actually have hands-on testing to judge a laptop in my opinion.
