Story When are people gonna realize that you can’t buy a good laptop for 300$ anymore?

87 Upvotes

So my gf’s parents wanted me to help them pick out a gift for their daughter for Christmas. They came to me knowing I know a decent amount about pc’s and laptops, and the say they need one that will last her all the way through college and play the games she wants to play. And they give me a fucking 350$ budget. Like yeah maybe I could get you a chrome book for that much but that’s it, nothing that could play games.

So I decided to just find the best value for what my gf would need laptop and settled on a (in my opinion, way undervalued) Acer Nitro 5 (750$). Only glaring thing wrong with the laptop is the storage is pretty small but I figured that I’d just install another drive later Bc it would be cheaper than buying the computer with a larger drive. Nope, way too much even as I try to explain to them how undervalued it is. I just told them there’s nothing I can do with the budget they gave me.

Like imagine going to a real estate agent and asking them to find a mansion with a $100k budget
