budget laptop for general use?

hi all, need recommendations for a laptop.

i browsed thru some brochures and Acer swift3, HP 14s looks quite okay. anything else in this range thats worth a look at?

requirements

price: preferably under $850
but can stretch to 1k if the recommended laptop is like super bang for bucks, star buy or something

use: general daily use. work, surf net, stream vids, music.

screensize: 14inch or bigger

weight: 2kg max

misc: not too low quality/flimsy build i guess. hope can use for few years




btw, buy at sitex cfm is the best idea? online black friday/cm got any other good deals?

Hello. You may want to take a look at this one,https://m.newegg.com/global/sg/product/N82E16834850876. I believe this is the cheapest laptop with this specs.

How about asus vivobook S?

The list price X510UF-EJ370T $1098

Usually the prices at sitex are lower than printed brochures listed price, so it might be around your budget

I bought mine asus S406 at $1250 during sept comex show. listed price was $1498. Now is selling at $1598
