So my laptop is around 4 years old now and windows 10 basically ruined it (before anybody suggests anything, I've tried updating the drivers, tried a clean install of windows 10, tried checking for viruses, tried disabling all non-essential startup programs and uninstalled stuff I didn't need, it just always says the hard drive/disk space whatever it is is always full).
I'm a second year college student going on to university next year. It would be nice to be able to carry it around with me (my current one is too big and heavy) as I tend to type a lot using google docs (
I don't do much gaming (although I did use to play games on Facebook and used to play sims 4, minecraft, need for speed most wanted etc, none of which my computer could handle).
I was looking at the Microsoft surfaces and apple MacBooks but to be honest I think they may be just overpriced and overhyped (like phones are). Price doesn't matter as I work (though below £1500 would be nice!) but there is no point buying something that is worse than something cheaper.
In addition to this, my tablet and phone are apple ones so having a MacBook would ensure consistency. But, I looked at the specifications and like I said they seem very very overpriced and overhyped and I have no clue what they're actually like.
I do dislike windows 10 but it is probably just because of my laptop and I'm not unwilling to give it another go. Though if I were to give it another go, the laptop would have to have windows 10 as it's original OS and not windows 8 (as all my family's laptops- minus 1- were like that and then had bad windows 10 upgrades/experiences).
Storage doesn't matter as I will probably store most of my stuff on google docs, though I transfer the photos on my iPad and iPhone to the computer when I have to reset them. This doesn't take much storage though. I've heard that high storage makes the computer slower.
So summary is:
-pref decent graphics card
-Above i3 as i9 has just been released, unless it can be proven decent enough
-not a low amount of RAM
-any amount of storage (pref below 1TB unless the computer isn't slowed down by it)
-A price below £1500
-Didn't originally have Windows 8 if it's a windows one
