So i have been entertaining coming back and hitting up a 2-3 box on a TLP. I dont even own a personal computer anymore. Would this cheap Laptop run 2-3 accounts? i never used one previously always had a desktop

keep in mind, TLPs that are true-box require multiple PCs.
Rizlona is a non-truebox TLP and you would not be required to have multiple PCs

no i need to pick one up, The girlfriend wants to go hit up Nebraska Furniture mart tommorow to use her 0% for 24month card, i thought if i could find one cheap for a couple hundred bucks i might pick one up. But i know nothing about laptops and havent even read up on a desktop spec in 5 years.

Any of those 3 laptops would run 3 EQ sessions, but poorly. And you've have to tweak your graphics down to minimums. To me their worst feature is that they are all based on dual core CPUs with hyperthreading. But then they also only have 8GB of RAM of which only about 6GB will be available to Windows and applications! The other 2GB will be dedicated to the onboard GPUs.

I think you'd be a lot happier long term if you can find a quad core CPU with 16GB of RAM.

Thanks for the help, it should be here in a week or so, now to try and find my old acct info lol
Most folks have to create a new free account in EQ and then file a petition to get the right info for the old account. A lot of character names and/or account names are off by a letter or whatever

Check out Lenovo page, their Legion laptops are on sale for a few hundred bucks. Nice gaming rigs
