    The Dell laptops are excellent and reliable. The Dell brand has always been excellent for multipurpose work. They are priced ok and affordable.

    Hi there, I’m looking for a laptop under $500 after about 10 years on a desktop. I like the silver versions better than the black, also like a sleek keyboard. Which of these do you suggest might be my best bet?

    • Hey Amy, I think you should go with Lenovo G50 which is 8th in the list. It is not even black not even silver! You can check its color in images on Amazon. It is packed with good performing hardware and its keyboard is also convenient to use. I think it is exactly what you are looking for..

    what would be the best choice for running it under linux, say ubuntu 16.04 or so? Any suggestions?

    • Hi Volker,
      I would recommend you to go with Dell because they already have few models which are delivered with Ubuntu pre-installed. So, you can check them out on Amazon or Dell’s website. Even if you are planning to run windows and linux simultaneously then also Dell laptop will be more better choice than any other laptops.

        hi brijesh,
        thanks for your recommendation!

        In fact, my present hardware is Dell, latitude e6500 (since 2009!).

        My motivation for replacing it, is only because it is not appropriate to run Win-10 efficiently as a virtual machine (VM). Because of my need to run VMs under virtualbox efficiently, I would probably try to get the Dell inspiron 15 5000 with the Intel i7 processor for which good experiences appear to exist with virtualbox.

        I would probably choose the new hardware with Win-10 Pro pre – installed, and install ubuntu (or one of the derivates) in dual boot

    Hello Brijesh I am looking at the dell #1on the list. My old dell which I use for Internet and such has the OS 7 which I like and am use to can I still have that or is it a must to have the new OS 10. Not a clueJackie

    • Hello Jackie,
      I think buying a laptop with Windows 10 will be better because Windows 10 has lot of improvements over older Windows versions. Just try it once by visiting the nearby store. You’ll love it. And, yes that Dell laptop will be best for your requirements.
