    Hello everyone:

    Back in 2014, I purchased a Dell Latitude e6500 laptop computer used from eBay. It has been a good laptop for me, and I like the build quality of the computer.

    Due to the age of the computer, it's pretty much impossible to upgrade the computer unless I'm willing to shell out lots of money. With the amount of money that it would cost for me to upgrade that computer, I'd be better off buying a different computer. I only paid $200 including shipping for the computer back then. Even if I were to upgrade the computer, I still wouldn't see the speeds I'd hope for because of how old the computer is.

    So here's what I'm looking for. I'm looking to buy either a new or used laptop computer. I've got up to $350 to spend on one. I would like at least an intel i7 processor of some sort, 8GB or more of RAM, would prefer an SSD drive. DVD drive is still a requirement for me, backlit keyboard, at least 15 inch screen or larger. legitimate copy of Windows 10 home or professional. Primary use for this computer would be web browsing, use of microsoft office applications, I need to run a VM on it with no problems because I am taking a linux class, and I might do a little gaming with the computer too as well as some video editing.

    I would prefer that it is a business style type of laptop computer as they tend to be built with better quality components compared to other laptops anyone can buy. I would prefer not to get an HP laptop as I've had back luck with HP products, but any other brand is ok. I would need to make a purchase and have it before the 9th of January.

    I am currently looking at possibly getting a Dell Latitude e6530, but wanted to see other options too.

    Your recommendations and GO!

    HERE are some brands/models in the $300 - $400 price range with an Intel Core i7 processor that you can browse through.

    Most of them are in "Grade B" condition because of the price.
