So my friend needs a new laptop and wanted me to look into it for her. I have a lot of experience with building desktops, but when it comes to laptops it's a little different. I have a couple ideas but I was wondering what you all thought, or if you had any other suggestions.
This laptop won't be used for playing games hardly at all, will mostly be for school work and everyday use. She said that she would be using the touchpad as well and not an external mouse.
