    Hi

    I need a piece of advice here. My parents (in their early 60ies) asked me to help to choose a laptop for around 500 EUR. The main usage will be web browsing and looking on pictures of their grand children :)
    After some research I've picked up 2:

    For around 470 EUR
    ASUS F540MA-DM247T N5000/8GB/256GB SSD/INT/Win10H Chocolate Black

    The pentium N5000 shouldn't be much solver than an i3(?)
    There is 8gb of ddr4 ram
    SSD 256 GB (256vwill be more than enough and if they need stock pictures they can buy a big SD card)

    The other one for around 520 eur


    Laptop ACER Aspire 5 A515-51-570F i5-7200U/6GB/1TB/940MX

    Better (much?) cpu
    6gb of ddr4
    Video card (always better to have one I guess)
    Bigger but much slower hdd


    I haven't found any better (I do it on distance as they live in another country). I have avoided all i3 as they had all only 4gb of ram.

    Any suggestion will be appreciated.

    I5 laptop is much faster.

    6GB is plenty for web browsing.
