CPU Benchmarks

Not the poster’s fault, but the CPUs chosen for the benchmarks don’t make sense - they are way up the price and capability ladder from this A6. Should be i3 at most, Pentium and Celeron for most.

Is this good for Photoshoot? Also if not, what is??

I have used HP notebook for 4 years, and its performance is good till now, but it will be very hot after using for several minutes.

Is it the same model? Cause if not, your comment isn’t really relevant. Just being the same brand doesn’t really mean much.

I have used a laptop computer. I like turtles.

I too like turtles and feel they would make excellent laptops. :slight_smile:

I have been following Woot for more than 10 years and never commented on anything, but that is the funniest damn thing I have ever read.
Thank you.

I’d highly recommend this for any not-too-picky students trying to get a cheap but sufficient machine to last a few years. I have an older model with the A8-6410, 4GB of RAM, and a regular HDD. Over the past two years, I’ve upgraded its RAM to 8GB and its HDD to a 250GB SSD, and it still runs pretty well. Considering those upgrades cost me around $100, this computer is a pretty darn good deal.

That being said, my biggest complaints have been the resolution and the glossy plastic construction. This computer seems to have fixed the latter, but I really wish the budget laptop industry would bump up to 1080p sometime soon. I’m not sure that I’ve ever seen 1080p offered below $400. 1366x768 isn’t the worst thing in the world, but if you do any serious work running programs that benefit from the extra screen real estate, it can get a little annoying having to scroll around a lot. Or just plug it in to a 1080p monitor if you have one lying around.

The CPU isn’t going to blow you away by any means, but it’s at the lower threshold of being perfectly sufficient. The only task it struggles with is watching 1080p 60FPS video on YouTube, but even then, only on Chrome. There’s something bizarre about video playback on Chrome that eats up a lot of resources (even on my more powerful desktop rig), so if you experience this, just copy the URL and watch on Edge or whatever other browser for the duration of the video.

Finally, if you want a bit more power, I’d recommend something with the A10-9600p or the A12-9700p. While Intel has been far ahead in the desktop market for a while, AMD’s latest mobile CPUs look really promising both in raw performance and performance per dollar.

I bought a brand new Lenovo laptop 2 weeks ago from Woot. It is a complete piece of junk. Defective right out of the box. Do not buy any computers from Woot.

Which Lenovo? What’s wrong with it?

And, if not Woot, where is the best place to buy laptops?

Shouldn’t a “business notebook” come with an operating system capable of joining a domain?

I just got the 500GB HDD version of this laptop from HP for $249. Took a while to update and remove all the bloatware, but right now it’s running smoothly. Does get a little warm when running multiple programs, but nowhere near as hot as my old ProBook. Will be increasing RAM for certain, not sure about switching to a SSD just yet. I have a 128GB laying around, but the HDD loads fast enough for me right now. Do recommend using the Powershell commands to clear out a bunch of unneeded “apps” before you get going.

Yes it should.

What powershell commands and what apps are you removing? This could help a lot of folks here. Please give specifics! Thanks.

Nothing should be called a “Business” anything if it doesn’t have basic business features… and a “Pro” version of Windoze is one of them. (or RedHat but that ain’t happening at Woot). Second would be a proper connection for a docking station, and third would be high speed networking (both gig-E and wireless AC), and finally at least a 1600x900, preferably 1080p panel. Although if it’s dockable the crummy panel might be given a pass.

I’m really sorry to hear about your experience? Did you get in touch with Customer Service about the issue? If you haven’t already, you can use the Support Form linked at the top of the page to contact customer support for assistance.

I had the same issue with a Dell from Woot. It was refurbished one sold for another company which really had bad customer service. I ended up returning it to woot, who had no problem refunding me my money.
