    I love the way this guy speaks πŸ˜€



  3. pim1234 on December 15, 2020 at 10:31 pm

  4. Valiantiron on December 15, 2020 at 10:31 pm

    Finally, a Youtuber speaking my language when it comes to real concerns I have with laptops. Thank you for doing the research and uploading this video!



  5. Sanjay Kumar on December 15, 2020 at 10:32 pm

    Can you please do a video like this with only ryzen processors



  6. Sai N on December 15, 2020 at 10:32 pm

    800 dollars is considered budget?



  7. Eredin Glas on December 15, 2020 at 10:33 pm

    The ultimate review



  8. _n on December 15, 2020 at 10:34 pm

    The speaking, the presentation… what a video! Thank you!



  9. Enrique Calderon on December 15, 2020 at 10:34 pm

    Thank you this is great



  10. Mark Okoli on December 15, 2020 at 10:35 pm

    was looking for a video just like things you made my day



  11. ben west on December 15, 2020 at 10:36 pm

    Who else wants more of that adorable dog?!?



  12. Ash Raf on December 15, 2020 at 10:37 pm

    you won me over with this video.



  13. radenzito on December 15, 2020 at 10:39 pm

    Xiaomi Redmibook 16 is now the best budget for just 650 € (16 GB ram Ryzen 5 4500U)



  14. Jan Venter on December 15, 2020 at 10:40 pm

    I understand your methodology but I tend to look at performance first. The HP at the bottom of your list is by far the most powerful machine on the list.



  15. Noah Smith on December 15, 2020 at 10:42 pm

    Thank you for excluding Chrome OS!



  16. Phillip John Evans on December 15, 2020 at 10:43 pm

    $500-$800 is not budget!



  17. Ruma on December 15, 2020 at 10:43 pm

    thank you for all the research



  18. Samarth R.K on December 15, 2020 at 10:44 pm

  20. Croaking Toad on December 15, 2020 at 10:48 pm

    Good video. So many now are heavy on intros, b roll, and music, and short on the details i’m looking for.



  21. CYRIL ANTHONY NASH on December 15, 2020 at 10:49 pm

    You are doing a great service



  22. DANGER SOUNDS on December 15, 2020 at 10:49 pm

    I really appreciated your best budget laptop review. Thank you. However, please give me your thoughts on a REFURBISHED LenovoThinkpad L460.



  34. Gustavo Cabrera on December 15, 2020 at 11:01 pm

    Great video. I just don’t like that every β€œdecent” laptop you found was in the $800 range and nothing really good on the lower 500-650 range



  35. CYRIL ANTHONY NASH on December 15, 2020 at 11:02 pm

    I really like how you present your content I would like to use direct people to your videos as a means to educate and help them make better choices



  36. Emma Vacca on December 15, 2020 at 11:02 pm

  40. jordan Higgs on December 15, 2020 at 11:08 pm

    How come no Huawei/Honor/Chuwi options?
    Maybe I missed you addressing this in the video somewhere.



  41. Sneakers Dave's on December 15, 2020 at 11:09 pm

    Its like he was actually trying to pick out a laptop for someone he knows. Earned my sub ✌️



  42. BALAJI Tata TATA on December 15, 2020 at 11:10 pm

    U



  43. nunio binez on December 15, 2020 at 11:10 pm

    Hi Josh, love your reviews. I ‘m wondering what your thoughts are on the Acer Aspire 5 Slim laptop. I saw it mentioned on some "top 5" site and liked it and the price. I’m looking for a budget laptop that’s good enough for voiceover work, as well as a good bright screen in Full HD for streaming. Thanks.



  44. Jeanger Bread on December 15, 2020 at 11:13 pm

    THIS IS THE MOST HELPFUL VIDEO I’VE WATCHED. it’s over when he showed an excel file, peak effort. worth the subscribe



  45. Antonio De Sante on December 15, 2020 at 11:13 pm

    please review the Nitro 7. Txu!



  46. Paul Green on December 15, 2020 at 11:14 pm

    It’s an shame that you still can buy an notebook with a 1366×768 Resolution in 2020 at that price point! Everything below 1080p should cost under 300€



  47. Vincent Nyakundi on December 15, 2020 at 11:15 pm

    I like your objectivity and honesty…



  48. Patrick Witter on December 15, 2020 at 11:17 pm
