sold out na yung Aspire. di sya nakapag order agad. mukhang sa southmall na lang sya bibili.

saw an Acer Aspire.. forgot the model... I3 -6xx , 4gb DDR4 14" and etc.. selling for  just 16k @ lazada
seller is also pc express
couldn't find it.

Got my kid a Acer Aspire ES1-433 for 18k a couple of months ago at PCHub.

She loves it. Kaso nga lang black lang available color and she wanted a pink laptop..
sana meron ganyan price sa sa southmall para sulit.
How's this?

I'll admit medyo dubious ang seller name na "Kwan" and no reviews for the product yet but then there's Lazada buyer protection.

Lenovos are not much to look at but they're workhorses. Having multiple web browser tabs open use up quite a lot of memory so she'd better prepare to shell out a little more for a RAM upgrade.
mukhang di ko hahayaan na bumili sya from unknown retailer kasi pag nasira ako lalapitan eh ayaw ko naman ako pa mag ayos.

hanap na lang ako ng ibang Lenovo kasi sold out yung Acer.

^yup, 4GB won't suffice so an added 4GB will be a helpful boost.

Guys do you know a store where i can buy Power Brick for my MSI GE60 2PC Apache Laptop? My current power brick is a Chicony 19.5V 6.15A 120W and I think it gives low current because when I play PUBG it switches from AC to Battery though its already configured in Nvidia CP. Do you guys have any suggestions?

> 120W and up bricks are rare.  If you can't get one ordered online, try bringing it to Gilmore, usually those laptop parts & services stalls in the Gilmore IT bldg will have them.

^ OEM Sony and HP bricks are available in Gilmore and Lazada... these are the two brands, that I know of, which use 120+ bricks.

Current Rig - Intel i5 2500 , Asrock B75 , 8Gb Crucial Ballistix DDR3

Option 1 - 19K
Intel I3 8100 (4Core,4Threads) , Asrock B360M Pro , 16Gb Team Elite DDR 4 2400

Option 2  - 12K
2nd Hand Core i7 3770 (4core,8Threads) , Old Board , 16Gb Zepplin DDR3
Will use old board... Buy new ram since board has 2 slots , and currently using 2x4gb

so how much faster is the old i7 3770 compared to a new i3 8100.. both are about the same price , parang yung ok lang sa option one is it's new and future proof ? ( or maybe not since this is intel baka bagong socket nanaman next year )

Intel Core i5 2500, Asrock B75 , 8gb Crucial Ballistix , Palit GTX950 2GB , 80Gb Samsung EVO  ,2x3tb Seagate SV35, Razer Krait , FSP Aurum 600w

@Capcom
300 series boards should be good for one more generation (9000 series processors). The big motherboard makers already have BIOS updates that add "support for new generation CPU".

@jojitb

Intel. AMD has nothing that competes in the price range except for old Bulldozer based APUs because the newer Ryzen stuff starts at ~P5k for just the processor. The office got a few PCs with budget almost exactly like that for people who do desk work (PCX prices):

2850 Pentium G4560
3050 Asrock H110
2600 4GB RAM (single channel, so there's an option to go dual channel 8GB later on)
2200 1TB HDD
995 Neutron Phantom case+psu
430 Logitech KB+M combo
4100 Benq 20" 1600x900
-------
16225

They gave it to us for a bit over 15k a piece coz we bought several.

If the 15k budget is strict, then you can probably cheap-out a bit more on the motherboard (ECS or Biostar will be P400-500 cheaper than Asrock), and on the monitor (18.5" will save another P500-600). I'd prefer not to though because motherboard is pretty important and the no-brands might be using dodgy stuff on the power side, and going any smaller than 20" gets you those terrible 1366x768 panels.

The G4560 is really the star of this build, giving near i3 levels of processing for under P3000:

If you want AMD then moving the budget up to 20-22k opens up the options to include the new Ryzen 3 2200G APU.

Tried putting together a 2200 Ryzen rig. Umabot ng P20k and thats just for the proc, mobo, RAM and SSD.

^ Baka napamahal dahil sa mobo and SSD. Ryzen 3 2200G will work on A320 boards with a BIOS update, and there's the new value king of SSDs the Kingston A400 (1850 for 120GB).


Converting my suggested rig above to a Ryzen 3 2200G:

+2500 : Pentium G4560 (2850) -> Ryzen 3 2200G (5350)
+300 : Asrock H110 (3050) -> Gigabyte A320MDS2 (3350)
+2600 : 4GB DDR4 -> 2x 4GB DDR4
+1850 : +Kingston A400 SSD 120GB
--------------------
+7,250 (total)

= 23,475

or -2200 (delete 1TB HDD)
= 21,275

here's what I tried at Newegg Phils.

Giagabyte GA-AB350 Gaming 3 = P5,825
AMD Ryzen 3 2200G = P5,360
GSkill DDR4 3600 2X4GB = P5,883
Samsung 860 Evo 250GB SSD = P4,092
Total = P21,160

I'm looking at boards that will work with Raven Ridge OOTB (pre-flashed to the latest BIOS), since there are a lot of complaints that some of the boards still require BIOS update (and an old Ryzen CPU) first.

for really really cheap build (~15k and below) you can't make a Ryzen build, all celeron and pentiums have integrated graphics which is enough for office apps and multimedia. you can even get those low-end NUC (around 7k, equivalent to proc/mobo/casing) which would result in the same price as @splerdu's build but you'll get a 4"x4" computer
