1.Dell Inspiron 15 5000 Series i5547-7502sLV

This is one the most expensive in the list but by far the best. It has everything at a top grade level and as just a beautiful design to it. You would be spending more, but trust me you won't regret it. It is currently at date of 8/23/2015 at a 26% off deal from amazon, so I would hurry. The only potential problem is that it doesn't have a optical drive, so if that is a necessity then this isn't the one for you. However it has great RAM and Hard drive space



  1. 4th Generation Intel Core i5-4210U processor
  2. 12GB DDR3 Memory, 1TB 5400RPM SATA Hard Drive
  3. 15 inch LED Backlit with HD resolution
  4. Its is a touchscreen Laptop
  5. Unlimited Cloud Storage
  6. Intel HD Graphics 4600 2GB


  1. No optical drive, so you can't use CD's with this laptop
  2. Battery life is said to be about 4 hours in heavy use.


2.HP 15-r210dx

This is a another great one. Its a bit cheap then the Dell 15 500 mostly because of its 2 GB less RAM and 250 GB less hard drive space. For those who were disappointed by the Dell because of no optical drive, this is a competitor. It is cheaper on Best Buy Website by about 110 dollars. So I would recommend buying from there. Is is a reliable store. That gives good shipping and good return, and overall great service. This is great laptop for editing documents or video's and heavy load processing. The link to the store is given bellow the image.

Price:- $479.99

  1. No Bluetooth
  2. Is not a touchscreen Laptop
  3. NO backlit Keyboard

3.Toshiba Satellite C55-C5241

This is the current best selling laptop on amazon. Its got everything from a great processor to great ROM and RAM memory. The only this that lacks is that it isn't touchscreen, and that is a bummer because windows 10 is adaptive to touchscreen. So if that's not a issue for you, then this is the best your going to get in this price. Its a new laptop, released just this July. It even has a special button for Cortana. Which is the personal assistant in windows 10.

4. Lenovo - Flex 3 2-in-1

You just want a simple laptop that impresses people, or maybe a second laptop just as an fun extra to travel with or do basic one.

Lenovo Flex 3



If your really one a budget then this is the one. Its the best configuration at its lowerst price. I wouldn't recomment going lower than this becaue then you get something that just isn't up to the mark and will have to be changed again soon enough. I would save up of you have to, and get this one. Its is a nice laptop that you use basically for anything. Configuration is more than enough for your basic school work, or surfing the web, and some basic editing.
