This year for Yule I'm planning to buy my SO a convertible laptop. Can you guys recommend some models you've used with Gentoo, or at least think would work well with Gentoo? Doesn't need to be fancy, just a recent model. She needs to replace an old laptop that runs Gentoo and is starting to show signs of hardware age. I'm going with a convertible because it fits her use style better than a standard laptop.

Min specs:
8 GB DDR4
1 TB storage
No Celerons or any such dinky CPU. Doesn't need to be the latest i7, just decent.
Not an Acer. Don't like Acer, sorry. Otherwise not finicky about brand as long as hardware is reliable.
Doesn't need to handle games or high-end graphics.
15" or larger screen.
Under $700. Deals are keen. :wink:
