ya. i needed one to just simply to do Zoom, Internet and also basic Office applications.... and couldnt find one Intel I3 in the range of $700-$800

End up getting an Pentium N6000 series laptop with 8gb Ram.

Personally not too bad, since i am pairing it with my office laptop and ipad Air4.

No reason to buy N6000 if budget less than $800. so many choices if you just check ANY shopping sites

Can buy dual core with local warranty. fhd ips screen

saw the ryzen one but they are all 15” which I have one i7 15” and is quite bulky.

was actually thinking of getting a refurb one but was thinking if it is actually worth the money.

Refurb doesnt seem worth when new 4-6 core ryzen ones are 500-800 as i have listed.

If you want small refurb, get x260 from lazada less than $300. Then spend $110 to replace the screen (or less if you diy). Then buy 512GB msata from carousell for $55. Then buy msata to sata adapter for $3 at lazada. Then buy new 72Wh 68+ battery for $62 from lazada (to get 10h battery life).

Total spend about
$298+110+55+3+62= $528

normal hard disk if u choose that option is slow, so u need to upgrade to sata ssd.

if you can find a new cheap ssd is good can buy, qoo10 has leven then use any voucher to reduce price.

otherwise can get used one. carousell has a samsung pm871 seller for 65

currently have a china brand one in shopee. search for 3150u. must fast hand fast leg

Thanks for sharing this deal @yusoffb01
Just received the laptop few days back. Super worth for the specs! Hopefully it can last
