So. I have yet another question that requires some advice.
I've been tasked by my uncle to find a laptop for my cousin sister's senior college years. She has decided to go into IT Software Engineering. I have also been given a budget to spend around $500.
I have looked at Core i5 and Core i7 Laptops primarily, but either these laptops are too outdated, or just don't meet my minimum requirements model. She will coding in what I assume will be Java, or at the very least Delphi, so the CPU is a game changer here. I have considered Atom, but the specs of the CPU set is putting me off the whole Atom lineup.
I want the laptop to have the following specifications -->
- Any form of Quad Core CPU clocked at over 2.7GHz. Not too worried about whether the CPU is Intel or AMD. CPU must have integrated graphics
- Have at least 4GB RAM. Not too worried if it is DDR3 or DDR4.
- Some form of SSD Storage, preferably paired with an HDD of some kind
- If possible, which I doubt, some form of dedicated GPU, whether it be AMD or Nvidia. A stretch, but preferred if possible.
- Can ship internationally
As for the games she wants to play in her downtime, she wants to play games like Minecraft and maybe CS:GO
