why would u need 8k.

4k already has 4 times more pixels than 1080p.

1hr of true 8k streaming = 75gb of data.. [laugh]

Problem with thinkpad is the price. An E14 Intel variant is the cheapest locally(14 inch screen).My workplace laptop is an E14. Definitely like the keyboard. Screen OK but not color accurate based on reviews. 

Actually the Macbook air is a good fit for u. Does its job well if u don't mind the slightly smaller screen.

My wife's MBA is about 11 years old. We hardly use it and it has two spoilt lcd lines, but it still works.

But we getting older, not sure if our eyes like the smaller screens and fonts ha. 

Last night play ard with my son MacBook pro,  actually quite fun working the pad with the 2 fingers,  3 fingers thing.  Can enlarge the screen and quite easy to work.  

Check my daughter new MacBook pro,  actually very light,  so the MacBook air is even lighter I think. 

But my son commented that MacBook pro the fan comes on very easy and quite fast, so could be it heat up easily?  [laugh][laugh][laugh]

that's cos it's the Intel chips which require high power draw and apple cant be bothered to make a good cooling solution cos of aesthetics.

the M1 chips should have much lower power draw. Reviewers have commented that much less fan noise.
So get the 2020/2021 versions of MBA, MBpro

Apple has the best touchpads. But their keyboard comfort may not be there for the MBpro (cos of the typing travel and hard edge below your wrist) vs the MBA.

I think I need a new basic laptop, any one spot any good lobang this GSS ? 

Maybe just a decent processor,  8GB Ram, and 256GB SSD... 

Current one quite jialat liao...  [laugh][laugh][laugh]

 

I would suggest the Microsoft Surface Laptop 4. What I like is the 3:2 screen ratio which gives you more vertical space, so reading online newspaper or forum with scrolling pages is easy. Also it is a touchscreen that you can purchase the digital stylus to write on the screen. You can sign forms digitally, can annotate photos or documents. You can screenshot a news article and then highlight or draw on it.

With the touchscreen, you can also use your fingers to scroll the pages or enlarge the screen for the old flower eyes.

Do get it from official Microsoft website only. Since your kid in tertiary institutions, can apply for student pricing.

Or would it be a better choice to get the current one repaired? 

Acer Aspire V5, I5 processor, 8 GB Ram,  been quite a few years.  2 yrs back HD gave up and changed to 256GB SSD,  then wifi hardware down and now using external adapter.  

Recently Bluetooth going,  and battery long gone.  

So thinking if worth it to replace those items or might as well buy a new basic model.  [laugh][laugh][laugh]

 

i had a v5-573pg for over 6 yrs!

got a sf514-54gt in feb this year! very good deal! on shoppee!

The most vfm 1.5k spent! $200 dep year. Less than $1 per day!

I chg to a ssd too. Upgrade the ram. But it just got slower n slower. And the screen hinge broke, so it's always open.

Wifi n Bluetooth slow and laggy. Time for a new one!

Oh I just checked. I bought the swift 5 on lazada. The promo price was better than shopee then.

Compare before u click buy!
