Looking for a laptop to work on but you have a shoe-string budget?

Is this deal for me?

The HP 15-AY000 15.6-inch Windows 10 laptop is down to $309.99 refurbished on Amazon. There are eight different colors available at this price. This is a daily deal sold by Woot as part of Amazon's Gold Box deals, so it will be gone tomorrow.

While this particular model is not sold anywhere anymore, an equivalent model on Amazon goes for $360 new and as much as $476 at Walmart. You're saving at least $50 off those prices.

This laptop has an Intel Pentium N3710 1.6GHz quad-core processor, integrated Intel HD Graphics 405, 4GB DDR3 RAM, and a 1TB SATA hard drive. The display is 15.6-inches with 1366x768 pixel resolution. It comes loaded with a DVD burner optical drive, built-in Wi-Fi, and 64-bit Windows 10 Home.

TL;DR

  • What makes this deal worth considering? - The price mostly. For only $310 you get a laptop with a lot of storage and decent speed. It'd be a great "beater" computer that you can shove in a backpack, carry around town, and use to get work done when you need it.
  • Things to know before you buy! - This is a refurbished laptop from Woot, which usually means it's covered by Woot's 90-day warranty at the very least. However, that information isn't specifically on the product page. Also, if you're really on a budget and want something more modern, you could shell out a couple extra hundred for the Acer Spin 5.
