I'm looking to buy a cheap laptop, and I found Lenovo Ideapad 330, it got either AMD A4-9125, or Intel N4000, so I'm here to ask, is it a good laptop for college stuff (word, excel, powerpoint, streaming, etc) ? if it is, then which should I buy ? the AMD one, or the Intel one ?

if you have something better in mind, I would really appreciate the suggestion, it need to be under 300$ btw, cause we are really in a tight budget here, and we need the laptop fast.

More Detailed Specs :
CPU : Intel Celeron N4000 Dual Core Apollo Lake / AMD A4-9125
Graphics Card : Integrated
Ram : 4GB DDR4

The n4000 lenovo laptop or the A4 9420e dell are the best (pretty much the same performance).
For overal quality the dell seems to be better but the lenovo seems to have a better battery life.

Would you mind buying refurbished? The celeron N4000 is just terrible and you'll basically be using a 10 year old pc. The a4 is better but not much.

No access to ebay?

The celeron would perform about the same as a core 2 duo e8400 which is enough for some light webbrowsing and office tasks, but too many open tabs or to many different tasks at the same time and it will just be incredibly slow.

The a4 is slower in every way except the gpu but that's not much better and won't matter. I had found results for the wrong a4 that's why I said it was better first my bad.

There are access to eBay of course, but that's mean it'll be sent from outside my country, and that gonna be hella expensive, my sis is a college student, she only use her laptop for using office and other stuff a college student need, we are on a really tight budget, so what do you think ? should I just go with the Lenovo or should we just wait to buy a better one ?
