    youre coming from an engineer's perspective.. vs me consumer grade mind.. i aint caring and trying to match power etc to makes it a fair tess... just comparing a mobile i3 of today vs old gen mobile i7 which be 4% better on da bench. you could probably get one dem old i7 laptops for 100 bucks or less.. so ptp.. is it even close... however i did suggest he getz a 7th gen i7... 600 dolla.. high cost.. but meh.. its a laptop.. would work and last 5-10 yrs..

    as a consumer.. not really impressed by cpu evolution da last 7 yrs.. dey be lazy peeps... be like buying madden every year.. a slight roster update for years... thats what it seems like from my end.. hopefully amd/intel will push each other for some great gains the next 7.. cause me slightly interested as a consumer now..
    Did you even read the post

    I linked to the laptop i3. What makes some of this confusing, is Intel replaced part of the Atom line with the low power Core line. So essentially, what Intel sells as an i5 7200U, would have been a mid-range Atom CPU 4 years ago. Instead, they kept the Atom line for even lower power consumption CPUs. So the i3 7100H is the correct comparison.

    With an IPS display? Will the user need to replace the battery(not a cheap part) sooner than later? Lot more factors are at play than initial price.

    I don't think you quite understand what's being discussed here.

    I'm totally in the "bang for your buck" crowd when concerning laptops, especially considering Prope's uses for it. But that doesn't change the fact that you just don't know what you're talking about here.

    What are you coming from, spec-wise? So you're not missing anything.
    Let's pretend that I'm no longer really sure, because I bought it in 2009. To be on the safe side, we should also probably pretend that my knowledge on things like this is very limited.

    thats a fair point.. but old laptop batteries be cheap now..well i guess depending on the model..i know me toshiba be 20 aussie dolla for a new one.. roughly the same price as rebuilding it meself..

    i aint trying to argue.. i agree new tech is better in da long run.. but dont discredit all da old shit juss yet... especially if u juss be wanting to use it to present powerpoints and shat..

    Okie doke, what I linked to would be a nice upgrade. Faster laptops exist, but bang for the buck + convenience + battery life, the Flex 4 is very hard to beat. You can even get the i7 model , but Amazon doesn't sell that with 16gb, so you would need to DIY that upgrade. Heck, you could even wait a little bit and buy a 16gb stick or two, max it out at 32. That's not something that needs to be done right away.

    It doesn't get discarded. We send our old garbage to Africa. Then they realize food is more important and sell it to Australians.

    He's a "consumer" (and on the unexperienced side at that).. he's not going to be swapping out hardware.

    You're being foolish. Rebuilding laptops is so rarely useful anyways. Ride it into the dirt and buy a new one when necessary.

    Save the rebuilding and upgrading for the desktops, where it's actually practical to do so.

    No problem. Look it over and if anything is missing or you have a better idea from there, just say so (if you still want some help). I'm sure a handful of people here can give you great advice on where to go from there.

    gus seems like an inteelgantz perp./. juss giving him da benefit of da doubt.. youtube would school him on breaking down laptops..

    so instead of buying a 15 dolla replacement keyboard and installing that, i should have bought another 500 dolla laptop?? now if kid didnt take those keys god knows where i would have just popped them back in. adding 20 dolla battery and at the time a 50 dolla ram upgrade.. well minus 25 for selling the old ram.. 60 dolla for a working well functioning laptop or 500 for a similar one wiff dat new smell and polish.. im just cheap mane.. for the most part.. i aint changing..

    I'd quit with the refurb agenda here. We know Prope well enough to know he isn't a techie(and he has even made that clear in this thread a few times), and at this point and time I don't have any reason to believe he wants to be any more of one than he needs to be. Set it and forget it. IMO, that's fine. When someone wants to take the next step, they usually ask.

    There's a point and time where persuading someone to take on a project is useful, but I think you're barking up the wrong tree.

    no one is telling gus to buy a broken laptop to refurb. i had suggested buying an already refurbished i5/i7. perhaps buying an i3 as you had said....and ultimately suggested he just get a 7th gen i7 since i saw his budget would allow it. you recommended he buy extra sticks of ram, well imo, if you can replace ram in a laptop, you can replace basically any bolt on part..

    a step or two more and a few more screws.. thats a keyboard, new screen, mobo replaced.. as far as battery replacement.. take out put new one in?!?!? i dont expect him to pull apart an old battery and install new cells... though that's not that difficult either...
