    Did Lenovo stop loading up their laptops with spyware embedded in the bios or is that no longer a thing?

    To answer your question tho, it's slightly over 500 but - https://www.amazon.com/Acer-E5-575G-.../dp/B01LD4MGY4

    Little heavy at 5 lbs, but think it would hit all the notes otherwise and even has a dedicated GPU if you want shitbag it up a bit.

    They got rid of superfish, and the 2nd round they got busted on.

    They have (at least in the business segment) gone a little lighter on the bloatware since then, but who knows what they stuffed in there now that isn't commonly known, even if they promise that they play nicer now and insist that they know that their reputation doesn't need another SuperFish at the tradeshows (I have no idea what this is called in English, trade fairs? where the big producers go to meet their corporate customers and pretend that they give a shit when the tech people want to play with their gadgets?). But who knows.

    (we have around 120'ish in the 5xx series at work)

    Any other ideas? The first recommendation is a bit high price and weight-wise.

    The resolution is kinda shitty, dunno if that'll necessarily matter for fucking around in Excel or whatever. That i5 is also a dual core which again, I dunno how much that matters for your number crunching needs.

    Looks like a decent deal for the most part, especially if lack of SSD isn't a dealbreaker for you.

    While Excel scales ok'ish in newer versions, I would not go any lower than 1920x1080 really.
    (at work I run excel in glorious 3840x2160 on a 43" Dell, it is glorious!)

    I run it on three 27" 2K monitors now.

    Glory days.

    Laptop will be here tomorrow. Got a giant battery pack for the plane ride as I'll be cranking out reports until we land.

    You better not be referring to 2560x1440 as 2k

    You mean like literally everyone else does? 2K, 1440p, WQHD are synonyms.

    I'm finally going to be able to run games at 2K very soon. Micro Center is holding a Zotac GTX 1070 AMP! for $224 before tax. So fucking pumped because I just missed getting a founders GTX 1080TI for $500.

    Calling it 2k bugs me a little, but only because we should be calling 4k that. Dumb that they switched between horizontal and vertical values to give marketing a bigger number to sell

    Calling 1440p 2k is retarded. Don't be retarded.

    1080p makes more sense than 1440p to be called 2k.

    2560x1600 makes more sense than 1440p to be called 2k.

    1080 ultrawide makes more sense than 1440p to be called 2k.

    1440p makes more sense to be called 2.5k than 2k.

    4k is called 4k for a reason. 1440p, 1600p, 1080p, UW are called what they are for a reason. 2k it is not.
