I’m getting a new laptop as a gift, so I can’t get really picky. The specs look descent, so I was wondering what you guys think 🤔 see picture:

I wish it had an SSD but the amount of memory seems good enough to run Logos.

Thanks!

You should be fine in terms of RAM. I did not see what size the HD is, but assuming it is large enough, the computer should be fine. I would recommend an SSD if you are able to do it. That will likely make the most difference in performance.

1 Terabyte of HD space 👍 It’s a gift so can’t really get too picky 😁

Those specs are better than the specs of a lot of laptops running Logos/Verbum. I wouldn't be worried if I were you.

SSDs are really very cheap. A 500GB SSD only costs $80, which would add perhaps 15% to your purchase price, but probably double the speed of many key tasks.

That machine is fine.  Take it and be very happy.  Definitely upgrade to SSD if you can before hand, but if not, sneak one into the laptop after you get it.

Nice machine. I think you will love it.

I too would highly recommend a SSD if possible. It made a huge difference for me and I consider it almost essential for using Logos. Even if you accept the gift you could upgrade afterwards and "re-gift" the drive to someone else.

So is it as easy as remove the original HD and just putting in the new SSD? Is there anything else to it? Since it’s a gift, I could actually invest on a brand new SSD.

I’m not sure about that particular model. Some are easier to access the HD than others. I have swapped them out on laptops 8-10 times. Simply clone the existing drive, remove the old drive, install the ssd. I would suggest YouTube for a video tutorial
