    My cheap HP laptop is 5 years old and came pre-installed with Windows 8.1. And 4 gigs of RAM. Let that sink in.

    if anybody's going to do this I highly recommend that you make real good notes of what the seller puts in the description. I've got several stories of being scammed because of misinformation

    I would have run a Memtest to test the RAM. It's not replacable so if the RAM is going faulty, the laptop is as good as trash.

    My gran came to me with her early 2011 Dell Inspiron 1545, which whilst it was somewhat an ok laptop hardware wise, for Windows in today's world, it's just unbearable because the drivers won't work beyond Windows 8.
    I found on Ebay a late 2012 Acer Travelmate P253 with an IvyBridge i5 3230M. In absolute brilliant like new condition for £125. Upgraded the RAM to 8GB, as it's DDR3 I had some lying around. And an SSD too. Smashing laptop. Not by far a great screen as what you get with today's devices, but besides that, brilliant cheap purchase for my gran to have something that just works flawlessly right after install, without needing to install drivers.
    And it being UEFI too, very nice. Would of loved to try hackintoshing it as I can imagine it would work just fine with the hardware, but not for my gran lol.

    It's just a used business laptop. Companies buy them in bulk and then generally after the extended warranty period ends they just get rid of them all and buy another lot in bulk. Generally they then end up with electronics recycling businesses who then list them on Ebay either without a hard drive or with a completely wiped hard drive for data security reasons. Generally, used business laptops are a safe buy from Ebay for this reason. Hardly what I'd call a gamble as I've done it many times in the past.

    You should give Linux a try instead in future projects like this. It will give you something to learn, and it works better requiring sometimes NO drivers to install and at most, the GPU driver if it is Nvidia. Intel and AMD are open source standard.

      Phloat Wireless I feel you friend. Just stick with 1366x768. The X250 is NOT a gaming laptop by any means, so if I had to guess, I’d say you use it for either business, or other non gaming work, or video editing or anything, so 1080p is not a necessity. 1366x768 is mediocre these days, and for 95% of uses (mostly including gaming, it is perfectly usable.
