Hi, I am looking to purchase two lap tops,

1. I would like to find one somewhere around the $500 and down range, This would be used for Photo editing, Record keeping and daily activities like that.

2, This one I would like to be $800 and down , this one would be for Some Gaming and Regular Daily computer activities, Maybe some music and web surfing.

15-17 Inch Screens , I guess I am looking for two all purpose Laptops, I don't need the greatest but don't want one that is slow to open and load and freezes a lot.

Thanks

That any laptop is a gaming laptop is questionable, but take a look at this: https://www.bestbuy.com/site/acer-ni...acampID=614286

Asus Vivobook K570ZD 15″ HD.

Take some time to read each review and decide what sort of games you are playing and what memory, graphics card is required.

I purchased this one last Christmas for my Step daughter who is in college, Is this still a decent computer by current standards? Maybe Ill pick another one of these up as my basic computer. Or are the ones listed above better? As you can tell I am not up on this stuff. Thanks

yes it still a good laptop, make sure to keep the warranty and buy and extended one if you want, The battery will need changing at some point. 2-3 years depending on the use.

What do you guys think of these as all around lap tops, can you rate them in the order you think.

Some of the links have two models, can you help me narrow it down, I am kind of liking the ASUS models, If I can stay under $800 would be great but not mandatory. Thanks

From a personal standpoint, I've had less and less success recently when Amazon uses 3rd party suppliers. Whichever you order, make sure it's coming from Amazon. My latest experience was yesterday when a PSU from a 3rd party (the only one in the world seemingly that had it) was one letter different in the Model# from what I ordered. I could get that one anywhere at the price including directly from Amazon. I'll get my refund eventually, but who needs the aggravation?

From a personal standpoint, I've all but abandoned them.

From a personal standpoint, I've had fairly good luck with 'off-lease' units from Newegg and others. They're business class machines, usually no more than a year old that were turned in when companies upgraded machines, then restored to factory settings. Usually half price or less.
