I used the Aspire E15 (E5-575G) for 2 years back in 2018; the build quality is decent but what really gave way was the HDD. They cheaped out on it BIG TIME. What's worse — I couldn't upgrade to an SSD unless I removed the WiFi card 🥲

Just an advice for engineering students, try not to pick MacBooks for your uni, many professional softwares still mainly favours windows laptops, except for those who intended to use it for coding (eg. computer science) , or else you’ll be frustrated for not able to run the specific software required by your major (running windows on Macs usually dont give ideal performance btw)

I actually got an acer aspire 5 laptop for my birthday some time back, I think around 2018 because I needed a better laptop for school and I must say it actually works pretty well. If you're an ordinary student then it sure works for you. However, since I'm art student now, I need to upgrade my laptop to a better one because the current one doesn't exactly work for the heavy art stuff (especially for a multitasker like me). As always, GJ for the great work Dave!

The MacBook is literally cheaper than most windows laptops that's mentioned in this video that's sold in my country. Still really hesitant about getting a MacBook but usability wise, i think it's worth it. But still, repair is garbage, future upgrades would be a pain. Not sure if the hardware that comes with it would last for its lifetime.

I've been keeping track of Dell xps prices for the past year and they've always been +1380+. Im literally poor so i cant afford it, but im saving bc i want a product that will last me years to come and will keep up with the changes in tech. I still have my laptop from 10 years ago and tbe first laptop i ever bought from 6 years ago. I think its te i had a spec update so my next laptop will last 7-10 years

someone told me that i shouldnt buy the lenovo Ideapad cause its made of plastic? Is that a good reason? Because i really like the specs of the lenovo Ideapad 3 gen 6 (amd) 14´. Furthermore i am thinking about buying a Lenovo Yoga because i like the idea of having a touchscreen with a pen. First i was like: "ok i am gonna buy a laptop for university and if i got the Money i will buy a Tablet for text reading. But then i noticed that the ideapad (~ 500 Euros) + Tablet (~300 Euros) will be for sure more expensive than a lenovo Yoga. I know my english is pretty bad sorry for that.

I wonder why modern laptops appear to have poorly built hinges. I have a 7 y/o Acer laptop (with a pentium processor) its still working fine (minus the battery). I also bought an Asus laptop on 2019 and in less than a year the hinge got broken and the hdd as well. But can’t deny, Acer laptops look ugly af 😂

I really hope you don't take this the wrong way, this is just critique. I initially disliked the video because it lacked a presentation (it was just you talking for 9 minutes, no boot speed, no specs, no opening and closing apps, no exact price, etc). I removed the dislike at the "chef's kiss" joke, nice one mate. I do not have the right to say what kind of content you should do, but i would really like in the future, if i ever stumble upon one of your videos again, to at least see a little specs sheet on the right hand side with: chip, time to boot, time to restart, if it's lagging when you click on web browser, price. That's it. I wish you all the best.

Love this video! I am currently still using a Dell Latitude E7240 with an i5 4300u from 2014 I bought in 2018 for 200. The laptop is super sturdy and fast enough for my usage, and shows no signs of failure except for the battery which I replaced a few weeks ago, now it's back to 5-6 hour battery life :).

@Loyal problem is I’m buying a tv which is going to be about £1200-£1400 since it’s a 60 inch QLED Samsung. Plus my girlfriend has bought me the Nintendo switch recently so I’m buying games for it and a few switch pro controllers (which cost £50 each on Amazon). So not sure if I want to spend £900 on a laptop as well. However I am familiar with apple products, I’ve had iPhones mostly all my life alongside iPads.
