Replacement PC

Looking for a replacement computer today, old one died last night. Any recommendations on a replacement? Of course I want to get by as cheap as possible too? Thanks

Those two won't work. I believe you need Intel HD 4000 graphics and above.

Here's a cheap laptop you can get from BestBuy. https://www.bestbuy.com/site/dell-inspi ... Id=5835852

It's got the same graphics as the one you posted from Sams Club but it costs less. If you're going to use it for printing only, then there's no need to overspend. Otherwise, get the one from Sams.

The laptop I purchased has been working flawlessly. No issues, as far as concerns of over paying, down time= $$$. I had work to produce and deadlines to meet. i needed to be up and running that day, in my area this laptop was the best for the price I could find.

Incredible deal! I picked up a new dell laptop at Walmart for $249. Its advertised as a i3-1005G1 processor but everyone is reporting they actually getting a ice lake i5-1035 with G4 graphics. Seems to be running my solus good. Only down side is the display is only 720p which shouldn't matter for a dedicated laptop for my printer. Looks like people are also doubling the amount of ram for around $13 on ebay. Not sure I should do that upgrade or not? Here is the deal if anyone is interested
