Refurbished HP Elitebook 840 G2 future-proof?
Currently, I own a Dell Vostro 15 laptop with 500GB HDD, Intel Celeron 3215U 1,7 GHz processor, and 4GB RAM, running Windows 10. After a factory reset it is still often extremely slow, and I’m looking for a new, better performing laptop. However, I am on a budget.
I am considering to ‘upgrade’ to an older but more high-end refurbished laptop: HP Eliteboook 840 G2 with 256GB SDD, Intel Core i5-5300U 2,3 GHz processor, and 16GB RAM, also running Windows 10.
Am I correct in thinking this is a considerable step up? I am worried that, since it is an older machine it will be unable to keep up with newer windows updates, etc. even though it should preform better. I would like this laptop to last me a decent while.
I use my laptop mainly for streaming, listening to music, watching netflix and movies, text editing, general browsing and occasionally some heavier photo editing (photoshopping). I’m no gamer.
