The main thing i'm looking for is a good screen. Bright for outside use. I will mostly be using it outside.
4GB RAM (8GB MAX), 1600 x 600+, i3-2330m+, good screen for outside use,
Right now i can get all this for 559.99 in a Lenovo Thinkpad t520. Is the screen good for outside use?
Yes, it should be. Generally you want to avoid all laptops with a glossy screen which reflects light. Business laptops like the ThinkPad tends to have matte finish screen which diffuses light instead of reflecting it like a mirror.
