Laptop/ultrabook help
forsaken | 
Poland How much did you lost? 
Guys, i have a big dilemma. Im gonna study soon and need to get a new Laptop/ultrabook. Do you have any recommendations? Im gonna use it for school stuff, watching films and streams, programming and other stuff like that. It also cant be loud or big af. Im not gonna play on it, but it would be good if it could be able to run some apps like sony vegas or browser with other things at the same time, or maybe even some shitty arcade games (not a must be). I know that laptop has GPU but i dont want gaming laptop, on the other hand ultrabook is thin etc. but has Intel XD graphics card My budget is 1000 eur

By ''I know that laptop has GPU but i dont want gaming laptop, on the other hand ultrabook is thin etc. but has Intel XD graphics card'' i meant that Laptop is more universal, but for the cost of comfort of use

Ultrabooks from HP are really good
2018-07-20 21:39
Can you post some links if you have a spare second?
2018-07-20 21:39
Yes, I will do it

tbh if you have the money, some macbook. I've had mine for 4 years, I bought it for 1300e-1400e it's still worth 1000e now
2018-07-20 21:40
Im not a fan of apple at all, sorry
2018-07-20 21:43
After the 2015 MBP Retina which was a exceptionally great machine for its time, MBP are no longer worth buying because of various issues.

maybe look for a macbook air really thin, light and great for everyday use and school i bought a new one for 850 eur, but i dont know the prices in poland\norway where ever you are from :)
2018-07-20 21:42
Yea, ive heard that its good for school, but i cant really convince myself to apple. I cant really get over closed system conception

what do you mean with 'closed system conception' ? if you have an Apple you can just use wine to run a virtual windows and run what ever windows can run.
2018-07-21 12:01
MacOS is surely not the problem. Way better for programming than Windows because you get a true Unix like shell. However, the most recent MacBooks have some serious issues which make them kinda meh for buying. I'd strongly recommend you get a Lenovo ThinkPad for student price and install Linux or Windows on it.
2018-07-21 12:42
lol one of the students in my class bought a macbook and for the rest of that year I was constantly hearing about him having problems installing some software because most of it is windows only (programming classes)
2018-07-21 12:09
Had the same in my physics classes

as i said get Wine and install the programs, you can do the same for video games
2018-07-21 12:34
it's just not practical at all. You're on your own if you buy a macbook for school because nobody else (or very few) owns a macbook. Sure if you know what you're doing then you should be fine but lets be honest anyone that uses apple products is not the most IT skilled person :-) Even when the student in my class finally managed to install the software or find an alternative then there would be cases when he was stuck with some assignment and asked for help from the teacher. Well guess what the teacher doesn't know shit about apple products either so there they sit for the next 30 minutes trying to figure out something that would take 1 minute with standard school OS (windows)

LG Gram 2017 would be perfect for you, small compact fast and fits your budget
2018-07-20 21:45
Why even go with LG? If you gonna buy an ''expensive'' laptop, go with a brand who has a big foot in the bussines. HP, Lenevo, Asus, Acer, msi.. LG, dell, huawei, these aint the established stuff you can trust
2018-07-20 21:50
Because its proven to be great, lightweigth amazing build quality, great ips screen, with good battery life. While working in PC repair shop, we were always servicing Macs (best but overpriced af, and reparis cost shitton of money)/Dells/HP's(worst laptops hands down), I know what im recommending. Also MSI laptops come with loads of bloatware, build quality is poor to say at best... Also honorable mentions are Lenovo's thinkpads
2018-07-20 21:58
That LG Gram has sick lightweight and great quality build, but this guy isn't buying a pc for that, same as the screen that is praised for its brightness in the sun is not a must. LG Gram would be an sick traveller and on the go laptop. I would say Acer, Asus or lenevo has the best ''daily'' laptops for a good price. Mac is overpaid shits unless you are a editor basically ^^ HP and Dell is the standard school laptops, ugly, heavy, not so good and just bad. We are kinda on the same page, just a liittlleee bit ;)
2018-07-20 22:04
Mac laptops have serious issues hardware wise since the 2016 models. They were great even for the price before that. MacOS as an operating system is not only good for editing but especially for technical things and programming. Gives u a UNIX like shell and most cross-platform options. Lenovo Thinkpads would be my choice with the biggest negative being the screens (unless you buy X1 carbon which has other issues).
2018-07-21 12:44
I cant somehow find it in Norway
2018-07-20 22:09
Not available in Europe and most likely never will be
2018-07-21 12:45
just dont buy hp and you're fine
2018-07-20 21:46
why? #2 said they are good. Can you explain a bit?
2018-07-20 21:47
im writing this with my hp pavilion 15' on core i5 8250 in general its ok sometimes its so stupid i want to throw it out of the window edit: but if you are going to use it like you said above its kinda ok, especially for that money
2018-07-20 22:10
hp garbage breaks in 1-2 years

HP Dell and Lenovo are all decent for laptops/ultrabooks. If you do not want a dedicated GPU try to get one that has more ram so your intel card will have enough memory to work with.

My suggestion would be the surface pro and like another guy said. the new lg gram is also a good buy

Asus is good for a year or two then you ll need to start replacing some parts... But its still not bad and if you need repairs for asus they are pretty cheap and you can order parts from china for dirt chip. Overall all asus is pretty good and stay away from mac because they are overpriced af...
2018-07-20 22:13
Lenovo ThinkPad series (even older ones are really good) they have everything you'll need
2018-07-21 12:06
+1 Only bad thing are the screens (even IPS ones) except you get the X1 carbon. T480 is a great machine which still has the battery swap option.
2018-07-21 12:46
Sweden brask_ Pretty good IMO. Maybe not super powerfull, but does look alright and is silent.

This is my pick for you: It is technically a gaming laptop, but it doesnt have a childish look as other gaming laptops with stupid lightings etc. Also it is very thin compared to standard gaming laptops adn lighter than them. You can do all those you need to do with it. Plus you can game whenever you get bored :)

Intel XD Graphics lmao
