Is this laptop going to suit me?

Recommended Posts

I am in the process of replacing my laptop and a friendly geek has recommended one to me. I'm not particularly tech savvy when it comes to specifications and so would like some advice on whether this laptop with its specs would suffice for general academic work, a bit of video editing and some gaming,, Basically general university student use.

 

HP ProBook 455 G3

 

Processor: AMD Quad-Core A8-7410 APU 2.2 GHz

Turbo boost up to 2.5 GHz

With Radeon R5 Graphics

2 MB Cache

 

Memory: 

16 GB DDR3L-1600 SDRAM

Configuration: 2x8 GB

2 SODIMM

 

Hard Drive

 

480GB SSD

 

Loaded with Windows 10

 

He's offering it to me for ~£600, does this sound reasonable? 

 

Thanks for your help.

I would not pay $800 for that

I really don't know if that's worth the $$$... But, given how poorly that some companies are coding these days, I wouldn't expect to play RS on that.  Maybe the first StarCraft, maybe UT2004, but definitely not the latest and greatest stuff. :(

Is this guy trying to sell you a used computer for that much?

You could build a far better PC for that price.

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?' Actually, who are you not to be?~ Marianne Williamson
