Re: Laptop with external HDD as a super-budget solution.....???

Thanks everyone, remembered a pal had offered me a tablet will work with phone for basic culling and mobile uploading, so looks like the laptop idea goes in favour of a cheap PC upgrade.

Have done some digging and the PC's CPU was basically archaic when new so is actually doing pretty well btu motherboard is ay too feeble to upgrade.

My brain gets fried by how far I should upgrade.....some say i5, others i7...and it seems even these vary wildy by generation. Looks like NVME cards are even better than SSDs...is that right?

How do I tell if a PC can be upgraded to take these? I'm guessing tacking on HDD storage  by USB is pretty easy.......

So...give me a minimium spec I should be shopping for!

Humble apologies for being a total novice numpty
