    Looking for new laptop

    Hello
    Looking for suggestions in laptops. I am looking for an i7 Dell laptop. I seen that Officemax has one on sale for $449.00 which in an Dell Inspiron 15 15.6 i5559-3347SLV. It is a i7-6500U

    When I go to the Dell website I see many i7's but they are a bit more expensive but I notice they have different ram which is DDR4. Maybe that is why.

    Just looking for recommendations on good systems (Dell) for everyday use and some minor video editing. If anybody has other brands they recommend that would be good also.

    Thanks in advance

    You usually can't go wrong with Dell laptops. The newer one with the DDR4 RAM probably also has one of the newer processors as well, which is why it is more expensive.

    I agree with the Refurbished!

    I purchased a couple of Refurbished Acer V5 573p-6896 Laptops a couple years ago and got a great deal.
    When I opened them up to Max out the RAM I found that there was an Empty mSATA Slot for an SSD Drive.
    I upgraded them both to mSATA SSD Drives and kept the 500gb Drives in the laptops as storage!
    These laptops already had most of the Bells and Whistles and would have cost more than double what I paid for them!
    Specs are Below for these Laptops!
