    Hello,
    Last March, I purchased an HP stream with 4GB Memory, 32GB eMMC Storage. I was not aware that a common issue in the laptop is that all the restore points use up basically all the storage. I have no room for anything on my laptop, I cannot update it, and trying to use the thing is pretty much useless because it's slower than a snail, and it won't allow me to reset it because I don't have enough storage. I even tried an external hard drive, but I can't install the software, so...here I am.

    I was looking to purchase a new laptop, but I don't want to run into the same problem. I was looking at the Lenovo ideapad 330 15.6" Laptop, Windows 10, Intel Core i3-8130U Dual-Core Processor, 4GB RAM, 1TB Hard Drive one. I only need it for basic stuff. Homework, some internet browsing, etc. Would I end up with the same issue? What are your suggestions. I don't need anything fancy and I'm looking to spend only about $300, give or take.

    Any suggestions would be highly appreciated.

    Thank you.

    Hi and welcome to TSG.

    Almost any new laptop could do what you need, including that Lenovo 330. If you want some other recommendations tell us how much you want to spend.
