Which laptop shall I go for?

I am looking for a Laptop with not that high end specifications but at the same time my concern is the laptops that are available in the market except for mac become very slow and start to lag when they age. So can someone suggest any laptop with decent specifications which can guarantee long term results. I don't want to use my to be laptop for any heavy loaded experiences. Just work related. Thanks for your time.

Here's the big deal.

As Windows runs longer and longer there are 2 areas that cause it to slow.

1. Updates, files collect here and there. Side note: It's not a registry issue, don't fall for registry cleaning spam.
2. New faster machines arrive that make us feel our old PC is slow.

Item 1 is easy to address. Do a factory restore and it will run as fast is it did then.

As item 1 has cleared this up for decades, and we have no budget limit how about a nice CNET choice like the XPS 13 non-touch?

Recommended laptop is way outta budget.

The content is very helpful but the laptop turns out to be quiet unaffordable for me. Please provide some more suggestions.

Can't do that.

You didn't supply a price range. For the 250 buck range we get affordable but for some too slow. There are no fast 250 buck machines unless you are upgrading from say, a Pentium.

Thinkpad E450

I've thinking of buying the Thinkpad E series.but many of my friends told the E series are too basic to do high performance work.X series are much better.Is that necessary? I just want to do some office work,surf the internet,and watch some movies.definitely no games requirement.

Let me share my old laptop had a core2duo

It was 4GB RAM, C2D and the onboard Intel 4500MHD. That was pretty basic but I wrote code in Visual Studio, apps for PalmOS and played 1080p video on the HDTV over HDMI. Is your e450 better than my old laptop?

Do anybody have anything to say about the HP Chromebook.
Suggestions please.

Re: Chromebook

Since the Chromebook runs its software from the cloud, it won't become slow and start to lag. If that software lets you do your work related things, it's an option.
