Hello everyone,

I want to buy a budget 15 inch laptop (ca. 350€) for movies and MS Office (no gaming, rendering or anything CPU/GPU heavy).

I've noticed there's plenty of laptops on the market but most of them don't have a dedicated graphics card in this price range and my question is, do I need one?

And lastly, do you have a few laptops, in mentioned price ranged, that you would recommend?

Thank you in advance guys!

EDIT : Forgot to mention that I live in Germany atm

This depends on the notebook. Acers normally have a lower quality than asus in their lower range. Dell I am not sure as the one I used for work was terrible although the build quality I would say was good.

Acer and dell normaly use plastic whereas asus normally uses plastic for the base and metal for the keyboard.

My best suggestion is to see the laptops in person and see if it has a good quality.

No idea, I always had a dedicated graphics card on my PCs and laptops, I'm not sure how it looks without one. If its not that important I'll buy one with integrated gfx. Do you have any recommendations?

Dedicated gpus are only for people that need gpu power like 3d graphics artists or gamers. Otherwise integrated gpus are fine. It also means that it will have a better battery life. If you give me some websites, I can have look for you.
