It seems that in your price bracket, you're gonna want to look at a DELL laptop.

Aim for Intel i5 or better, minimum of 8GB of RAM, hopefully an SSD and a HDD, and one with Windows...not a Chromebook.



Are Dells the budget laptop brand ?
And yeah definitely not chrome book haha ,


Is there an equivalent AMD CPU I could look for ?

On your budget I wouldn't pick an AMD.
DELL and HP make comps for fairly low prices that will do what you want.

Out of a choice between DELL and HP, for a laptop, I would go with a DELL.
If money is an issue, order a DELL laptop from DELL, you can customize it, and make payments if you want.

No, AMD in general is fine. But I haven't seen a lot of laptops, if any, with the new, good Ryzen CPUs.
For some reason, most seem to have APUs that the manufacturers are trying to get rid of, for w/e reason.

Yes, you can PM.
