I bought my current #laptop
cheap, a refurbished Hewlett Packard Pavilion x360 off ebay in March 2016.
It cost under 300 pounds (I lived in the UK at the time), but I spent another 75 bumping the RAM from to 16G a few months later. So call it 350 pounds. Cheap!
Am I allowed to want a new one yet?
Sadly, the answer appears to be no: it still works. The case is a bit warped (plastic), but it mostly just chugs along doing what I ask of it. 😔
It will be hard to beat the ROI on this thing, that's for sure.
(Also, it was very blatantly product placed in a Kiesza music video. Any time I get laptop envy I can take comfort in that fact...)
