    Hi, I need to purchase a new laptop for my studies and general use. I’m a graphic design student and use Adobe Creative Cloud; mainly InDesign, Illustrator, Photoshop and occasionally Premiere Pro (least used/mainly personal use).

    As I’m on a budget I am looking at the below laptops (most refurbished):

    - HP 15 db0089au 15.6” AMD Ryzen 3 2200U Dual core 8GB 128GB SSD + 1T HDD Win10 Home 64-bit

    - Dell Latitude E7470 Display 14" Processor Intel i5-6300U 2.40GHz Memory 8GB Storage 256GB M.2 SSD Optical Drive Win10 Pro 64bit

    - Acer Aspire A5 15.6” Intel i5 8265U 8GB 1TB HDD Win10 64-bit

    - HP Pavilion 15-cc060wm 15.6" Touchscreen Intel i7-7500U 12GB 1TB HDD Win10Home 64bit

    - Lenovo IdeaPad 15.6” Intel i5 7200U 8GB 1TB HDD Win10 64-bit

    - HP Pavillion 14-BK091 14” Intel i5-7200U 8GB 1T HDD Win10 Home 64-bit

    I’m really after advice on which one to get, or if they are all on par with each other. I plan on connecting to a larger screen when using it at home. I’ve looked at reviews but I’m really struggling to make a decision.

    Thanks in advance!
