Today, we have a request from Kevin who wants a 15-inch laptop under $500. Portability & weight are important since it’s going to be used as a business laptop for the road. A good screen and audio system are a plus for watching movies and listening to music.

Our Laptop Recommendation
Thank you for visiting lptps.com!
For less than $500, I would go with the HP 15-ay013nr. At 4.7 pounds, it’s quite light for a 15-inch and is equipped with a HD screen, 128 GB SSD hard and a good sound system. It’s a laptop I recommend often and is probably the best value for that price range. You can read the full review of the HP 15-ay for more information.
If you need a bigger hard drive and a discrete graphic card (to play games or anything 3D), you could go with the Acer E5-575G-53VG. It’s more expensive and heavier at 5.3 pounds, but it’s also a good quality budget laptop. (Read full review).
I hope that helps! Don’t hesitate to write again if you have more questions,
