    I'm looking at one on Amazon
    new HP Pavilion 15 for $900
    i7-1255U 1.2 GHz (up to 4.7GHz)
    10 cores, 12 threads, 12MB L3 Cache
    2TB SSD
    15.6” touchscreen 1920x1080
    Intel Iris Xe Graphics
    Wifi 6
    Windows 11 Pro

    I know I don't need 64GB RAM or 2TB drive or Windows Pro but that's what this one comes with at this price. When I look at laptops with lesser specs I see prices starting at $1,350.

    Right now I have
    Dell i7-7600U 2.91 GHz
    2 cores, 4 threads
    16GB DDR4 RAM
    512GB SSD

    and it's too slow for what I do, even after a fresh reinstall.

    Thank you very much.
