My opinion is to go with.........

In reply to: About to buy a laptop

I would suggest you go with ASUS Vivobook 15 x505 which is one of the best laptops under $500. It comes with Ryzen 5 processor with 16GB of RAM and has a very thin and a full HD bezel-less display of 15.6 inches, for more information you can go on ASUS page. I would recommend you go with this Laptop, It's one of the best office use laptop.
