I need a laptop/mini PC with focus on Performance, low power and quietness and upgrade abity .I will do casual work, no gaming
I built a desktop 3900x, 32GB,2060S.But a year later I found myself not using it to the max. Didn’t really get into serious PC gaming. So, will sell it. My needs are way lower.I could get away with my old i3,8gb miniPC.
I have M1 macbook air 8gb and it is excellent for my use, but cant run linux yet, so it can’t be my main machine.
I would use as desktop replacement , hook to 4k HDR TV. So, screen, KB, trackpad and battery are not priority by any means. Yet I would love a good processor, quiet,upgrade-able RAM (I found my self using less than 8GB anyways, thanks to Linux).
Use: heavy browsing, office work, perhaps 4k 60 HDR playback
My initial thought 5500 and 5700.8 or more ram , whatever ssd.
in the midrange CPUs, I saw prices are comparable miniPC Vs Laptops, so. Yet, high end 5900hx, 5800u miniPC prices are way lower than comparable laptops.
Country KSA. This HP 5500u is 620 USD. 2 year warranty
Or this 5900hx MiniPC with 75 days money back guarantee
Budget 600—>750 USD.
BTW, I have a spare 1TB NVME lying around.
