I cannot wait that long. So I found a sligthly used Dell Inspiron 15 7567 for 400 bux (good deal if you ask me)! I just finish setting it up and it is what I expected.

Around $500 used is very reasonable, I see more than a few on ebay auctions atm that probably won't go over $500.

Refurb might be possible if you get lucky.

A GTX 1050 would be a hell of a lot better for gaming, would actually give you some decent graphics and fps, while not using too much power.

speed_demon If you're patient you can find a new Dell G5 laptop with the 1050 and 8th gen i5 around that price by checking www.slickdeals.net.

If you aren't already aware of this - this is an excellent site to get good deals on refurbished and used laptops. https://www.dellrefurbished.com/laptops

Stealth3si I think I am going to consider saving up a bit more for awhile and buy a gaming laptop that uses a gtx 1050 ti. Looking around $500 for a used/refurbed I found a dozen or so have been sold on ebay in the past.
