USA, Looking for a laptop preferably under $400, DVD drive, Windows 8 (or basically anything but 10) and 14" or higher display, >7 pounds (more info inside, but this is the core of what I want!) [R]3 years, 5 months agoTheLonelySamurai posted submission on SuggestALaptop.

Hello all! Alright, I'm looking for a laptop to replace my current one, which is going into the shitter slowly but surely. Dropping a tiny bit of carbonated water onto it seems to have signaled it's death knell. But basically? I'm just looking to update a bit on what I have, which is this not so bad boy which cost me around $450 when I bought it.
Things I absolutely need:
Wi-fi access, it's how I connect to the internet.
DVD( with a possible +RW) drive. I mainly watch DVDs, and I have a TV recorder that I can record movies I rent off of On-Demand and stuff (yeah I'm running on circa 2000 type tech, I know), so I have a pretty extensive catalogue of DVDs. I also enjoy burning CDs and DVDs. At most I could live with just a DVD player. If it would be cheaper to buy a DVD+RW drive that is external + a laptop without it? I'm totally open to that.
14'' display. Can be a little more than 14'', but nothing crazy huge.
Absolutely must be under 7 pounds. All preferences being equal, getting something even lighter than the current laptop I'm using (around 6.6 pounds I believe) would be great, since I use it by propping it up on my chest and I also like breathing at the same time, but 6.6 pounds is fine.
Windows 8 is vastly preferred. Absolutely no Windows 10. I don't want what it's selling. D:
Under $400 is really good. I can go to like $450 maybe $500 if someone could convince me with something amazing, but this is already taking a huge chunk out of my wallet.
I don't really need anything special, just something serviceable. I don't play games on the laptop, I mostly just surf the internet and write, and occasionally watch movies/anime/etc. Sometimes I'll run something like Photoshop or Sumopaint, but both seem well within this laptop's capability, so I don't think I need to add anything special to run those.

Oh, I like this one! Out of curiousity, how would you say it stacks up against this one? I was thinking about grabbing this one and just buying an external DVD writer since literally right after I wrote this post I sat and thought how often I actually use said DVD drive, and it's like one time a month, if that. So getting a bit of a better computer (and for cheaper) might be in my best interests. But for some reason having it all together in one is really appealing. :X
Edit: Oh, and one more thing, what is that little...slot thing by the touch pad? Could I put a little bit of tape over that safely? I could imagine that thing getting something accidentally spilled in it. x_X
Minimal specs for a small PC laptop for SDR use. [R]4 years, 4 months agobmccoy1111 posted submission on RTLSDR.

Looking to ditch the Windows install on my MacBook Pro and get a dedicated PC Laptop for all my radio needs including SDR and digital signal decoding (SDR#, DSD+, HD780, etc). What are the minimum specs needed to get the job done well? I did have a bad experience with a 2008 HP laptop a few years ago. I could not use SDR# or HDSDR without crashing. Would like to spend as little money as possible. Also looking at tablets that can run Win 7/8.

I need a 2nd laptop to take with everywhere I go, because my current one is too heavy and big to carry around.
I searched and found the HP Stream 14 which does it for me, but I won't be able to order until next week, and it's running out of stock quickly. Any suggestions on some laptop like this one?

There seems to be a number of sellers available (including Amazon itself) so might not be as limited as it appears.
The Stream 14 is also available from Newegg, though they're not labeling it as such. It's also going for HP's retail price and not being sold directly by Newegg, but with a phased out model you're a bit limited on your options.
There's also this Dell with similar specs to the Stream 11 & 13. Not as thin as the Stream 14, but like the Acer uses a 500GB mechanical drive instead of 32GB of eMMC storage.
