    I’ve looked through numerous budget Broadwell laptops, but I have yet to find one I am particularly enamored with. Is there a laptop available for $600 and under that has a solid build quality, Core i5-5200U, and FHD screen? In other words, what is the best deal for a Broadwell laptop under 600 U.S. dollars?

      Not really, that’s too low for an I5 Broadwell. If you can step it up a bit you might get an Asus TP300 or maybe a Dell Inspiron 13 7000.

      You have the same model that I have. Even though it is not perfect, you will be able to get much better results if you use that extra RAM slot.

        Hi, could you make a comment on which RAM slots should we use for this computer? Thanks in advance

        I have Acer Aspire 14 (R3 471T). While working the screen went black. The laptop is working including the fan. The local repairer says the backlight gone and can only be replaced with the touchscreen and he says the screen is not available. I don't believe him.Is there any one who can help me by repairing it.

    I have an Acer Aspire R3-471TG-54UY.
    The hard drive just crashed. What would you recommend for a replacement (possibly in SSHD and SSD).
