I haven't seen that. You should plan on repair or something along the way.
Your college should have a suggestion list but I'm seeing folk hit the usual suggestion sites (CNET, here) and then get something nice enough.
You can edit pictures on a Chromebook so any laptop will do that work. That's not a very high bar.
https://www.cnet.com/topics/laptops/best-laptops/budget-laptops/ has a few models under 600.
I don't know much about laptops and i was wondering if anyone would be able to help me out a little. I'm looking for something $600 or less, that can get me through college, that can edit pictures for my photography, and could also be eligible to support digital art. If you know of a good laptop, or just what specs I need to look for, please let me know. Thank you!
