Our laptop recommendation
For a laptop around $400 – $500, the choices are pretty obvious. In that price category, most of the laptops on the market have so-so quality. In my experience, right now there are only 4 or 5 laptops that really make the cut at those prices.
- To get value and quality, go with the HP 15-ay011nr. It’s a 15-inch laptop at around $460 with one of the best value for that price.
- To get more performance – including 3D & Gaming – go with the 15-inch Acer E5-575G-53VG at around $550. Choose this
- For a cheaper and lighter choice, go with t he Asus VivoBook E403SA. It’s a rather good quality laptop with a 14-inch HD screen that weighs 3.3 pounds
