BEST BUDGET LAPTOP 2017 (Alex’s Kokak List)

May 15 09:37 2017 Print This Article

I keep getting asked about this and I generally try to recommend it every time but I don’t necessarily think I emphasize it enough – the Surface Pro 1 is the Best Budget Laptop by a massive margin. The 4 year old tablet / convertible / 2-in-1 Windows PC from Microsoft is a very powerful device and made really well – but it sells for a low price these days because a lot of its owners have been upgrading to newer versions. Because of how much I believe in the affordability of this guy, I’m willing to put it in the “Kokak List” – which is basically this new thing I made up to emphasize the best devices in various price points. Think of it like an “Editor’s Choice Award,” except I’ll award it to old (but still good) products as well. But anyway, you really watch our video feature embedded above to really find out what makes this PC so good for its price.

Tips for people interested in the Surface Pro 1:

  • The SSD you generally get on this laptop is only 128GB. A lot of Filipino’s have this hoarding mentality where they download everything and save everything so if you’re that kind of person buy a portable HDD to supplement your hoarding needs. And trust us, you don’t need 10 games and 200 movies always installed on your computer. Exercise a little restraint.
  • This has only one USB Type-A port, so buy a USB Hub if you need to plug in more accessories at the same time.
  • You can connect this on external monitors or projectors if you want to do a presentation using Mini DisplayPort dongle that converts it to HDMI, VGA or DVI. (We suggest Lazada.)
  • You can use most Wacom stylus. Most sellers have generally lost their original stylus already, so just buy a cheap one.
  • DO NOT BUY THE SURFACE RT. Its a completely different product.

Well, that’s all we have for you. I really can’t say much more than what I already put in the video, and if you’re still not convinced I’m just not gonna keep trying and will let you buy whatever crappy laptop you want. If you think you spend more time doing laptop research than I do, feel free to make your own decisions. Otherwise, respect the Kokak List.
