I just both a new laptop for work and it is helping me a lot in fulfilling my four freelance jobs. To be honest it is my first laptop and I am not disappointed.
I bought a Dell Inspiron 5459 in Cebu City, Philippines, for the price of 32,600 PhP. It also goes along with some freebies like the a wired optical mouse, a sling bag, and a two-padded WiFi router.
For a budget laptop, it is full-packed with remarkable specs.

The color of the laptop is black, sophisticatedly stylish. It is easy to use and work on because the weight is light for a budget laptop. The built-in keyboard is surprisingly friendly to my fingers. With the help of a Windows 10 platform, basic functions like Microsoft Office.
The only issue I got so far is the slow pace when booting up. This is probably due to the absence of an SSD drive. I actually planning to change the default disk to a SSD drive, however, the a 1 TB hard drive memory space might be a waste if not used.

Yes, this is not the best laptop out there. How I wish I have a SSD hard drive to a processor of i7. I won’t worry that much. Soon, if I have the proper resources, I will buy a more power laptop.
