Laptops for finance

Buy this and add RAM to 8 GB.

I got a Lenovo G500s for $500, I think, post-rebate: 8GB RAM, 1TB memory, i5 processor, good battery life. awesome value. I can have absolutely everything running at once with no lag at all: 20 Chrome tabs, big excel files, Spotify, downloads. I just hook it up at a big boy screen, a mouse, and a keyboard when I get home and put it on a turned off cooling pad. And if I want to, I can use it as an extended screen. I had an HP Envy before, but I forgot it at a bar.

Curious to know how the HP Envy was working out for you. I bought it sometime back but haven’t used it even a bit.

So you bought a $550 laptop and haven’t used it? Why?
I was very happy with it. I initially overlooked it because of the Beast by Dre logo, assuming there would be a name brand mark up, but it ended up being the best value I could find within my budget. I forgot the specs, but I think it was like:
6 GB RAM
750 GB HD
INTC i5 processor
good battery life
moderately sexy
durable

Ironically, the speakers fucking blew. My Lenovo G500S has Dolby Advanced Audio V2 (I have no idea wtf that means btw) and they kick the shit out of the Beats Audio in my HP laptop. But I usually use either my built-in monitor speakers or earbuds, so I don’t really care.

Thanks for your reply! I bought it only for learning modeling, doing excel work and a bit of industry research. I fell sick and didn’t get the opportunity to use it.

Windows 8 turned me off big time so I’m thinking of putting xp on it. Any thoughts?

Also, the small up and down arrow keys weren’t a hindrance for you while using excel?

You get used to whatever keyboard you get pretty quickly.
Download Windows 7 Shell. W8 is shit.
