\r\n Buy a laptop\r\n

\r\n Where can you get a good laptop cheap.
\r\nThey all seem to gouge for more memory or a SSD, anyone have luck lately?
\r\nI know it\'s always the case they charge a bit more than the retail price difference, but it seems adding a SSD is $500, or moving up to 8gb of memory is a few hundred.
\r\n
\r\nI\'m tempted to just buy a laptop and upgrade those components right away.\r\n

    \r\n SSDs are super cheap - unless you want a 512mb one then you pay the massive markup.

    \nDell outlet is a decent spot to hunt around. Keep in mind a 2 year old computer likely far outstrips your needs of using chrome and watching porn (just playing the odds on that call).\r\n

    I dunno, I found getting some of the video drivers to work on previous linux distros made watching porn difficult. Maybe things have advanced with new bleeding edge distros.

    16GB of memory and a 256 GB SSD will limit you to the highest of the high end notebooks, which is why you\'re having trouble finding a good deal. Very few people need such an extreme amount of memory in a notebook.
    \n
    \nIt would definitely make more sense to buy something cheaper and upgrade it yourself, but you will have to do your research and make sure that whatever you buy can be upgraded to 16 GB since many notebooks have lower memory limits.\r\n

    \r\n It sounds like you want a workstation you can carry around occasionally? On the screensize front, if as you say you won\'t be lugging this around much, and most of the intensive work will be done in one location, look at getting an external monitor. Choose a screen size sufficient as "good enough" for short periods of work elsewhere, rather than getting a screen large enough for day-to-day use. For development work, a portrait-orientated monitor can be nice for long blocks of code! Check if the laptop can support dual external monitors. Finally, look at the screen (or at least the specs) - too cheap to believe may be less-goodly TN screen rather than something like IPS; may be worse viewing angles or other quality factors.

    \nAs a baseline, an Apple Retina MacBook Pro, 13" screen, 16GB memory, 256GB SSD runs around $1800 ($2100 for a 15" with an i7), as a reference as you work down the profit-margin ladder... \r\n

    16GB of memory and a 256 GB SSD will limit you to the highest of the high end notebooks, which is why you\'re having trouble finding a good deal. Very few people need such an extreme amount of memory in a notebook.
    \r\n
    \r\nIt would definitely make more sense to buy something cheaper and upgrade it yourself, but you will have to do your research and make sure that whatever you buy can be upgraded to 16 GB since many notebooks have lower memory limits.

    I\'m thinking of doing that, crucial has a nice tool that lets you confirm the compatibility of their products, which is great as I\'m long MU, and they make both SSD & Memory products.
    \r\nThat being said I\'ve got an Intel SSD, it\'s awesome.\r\n

    \r\n Although, itís down to personal choice and budget, but I wouldnít be playing with quality just for sake of price. I like decent screen size while I am okay with slightly higher price, at least itís worthy. I go with HP mainly while Dell is also decent choice.\r\n

    Before considering a new laptop, I\'d first confirm that you don\'t have a lot of unnecessary applications running; that your hard drive is not getting too full; and that your internet connection is not a restriction.\r\n

    \r\n I\'ll get an SSD when I can afford it, realistically a 2TB drive is pretty expensive, and well my 1TB drive is full.
    \n
    \nThat includes backing up most of my data offsite (I love AWS S3, as long as I don\'t need to get most of it back)\r\n

    I assume you mean laptop? Because otherwise you just add a 256GB SSD and clone your OS/programs to it or fresh install them. Keep the data on 1TB HDD
    \n
    \nI was able to do this in my MacBook Pro by removing the CDROM (never used it once) and moving the original HDD into its place (requires a $20 adapter)\r\n

    I\'ve been using Macs since 1986 and while I love them, I would actually disagree with this statement. The longest-lasting laptop I\'ve ever owned was a Lenovo ThinkPad, which hung on for more than 10 years. The main problem with keeping a laptop that long is that you can\'t usually run the latest operating system on it, so it becomes a security risk.

    \r\nMy current MacBook Pro is from 2008 and can run Yosemite (the latest Mac OS), but it doesn\'t run it very well: it\'s slow, especially in comparison to my more recent iMac, but it still works fine, even the battery still holds a good charge after all these years. But I\'ve had lots of hardware problems with Macs over the years; my current two are the only trouble-free ones in a long line of Macs.

    I\'m running an 11yr old Dell laptop and it\'s still running strong. After Windows XP kicked the bucket I downloaded a linux OS (Ubuntu). Switching to linux often solves the speed issues for older computers. Actually I\'ve always ran a dual boot as I\'m not a huge fan of Windows. Time for me to upgrade my laptop over the next year or so and I won\'t be purchasing a MAC, better value for your dollar elsewhere.

    \n@MrMatt. Keep us posted on the machine you end up purchasing. Thanks.\r\n

    Interesting- I spent a ton of money on all my PC laptops- new batteries, new power supplies, new hard drives, new DVD drive, this that and the other thing, plus countless hours of frustration in freezes, virus/malware removal, and then they all eventually ground to a halt. My Macbook has been running flawlessly for almost 6 years, still holds hours of charge. Plus I just find the OS to be WAY better. I hate having to use a Windows machine at work and keep cursing it, and hoping for the day when the company switches to Mac. But of course YMMV.\r\n

    Where can you get a good laptop cheap.
    \r\nThey all seem to gouge for more memory or a SSD, anyone have luck lately?
    \r\nI know it\'s always the case they charge a bit more than the retail price difference, but it seems adding a SSD is $500, or moving up to 8gb of memory is a few hundred.

    Just check out the local bestbuy and get a 500$ laptop(if not then just order off amazon). It\'ll run all your needs for the average consumer. Any higher end stuff you should just buy a computer.\r\n

    I wouldn\'t buy from Bestbuy, Costco is often cheaper with a better return policy.
