    I'm not even gonna watch the video. I could really use a new laptop at home, but I don't have a budget at all right now. I'm sure these new awesome machines are WAY out of any price range I could scrounge up any time soon.

    I'll never buy new again. A guy I know sells off-lease business class laptops for a good price.

    I should find a guy like that. I don't need much. The most intensive thing I do is run the website software to manage the site for my theater group. It's a huge site with lots of pictures. The whole computer runs rather slow though. AND Lenovo has apparently decided not to support it into Windows 10, which I went ahead and installed anyway. It wasn't running very good on 8.1 either and I had to keep reinstalling the video driver to get the brightness buttons to work.

    I'm definitely staying away from Lenovo for at least my next PC. I'd like something like the Dell I use at work, but I'm the one who makes those purchases and we're not getting any sort of amazing deal. over $1k for one of these. That's much more than I'm going to pay for the occasional picture edit and the website. I do everything else from my phone or tablet(s).

    Send me a pm and I'll get you in touch with him. I think I paid $275 for my current elitebook. It runs my web design and other stuff without a problem. Of course I put a 512ssd and 8GB of ram in it too.
