Demand for low-end laptop CPUs plummets, and not because of the chip shortage

Low end and cheap laptops are waste of money. They are not enjoyable to use at all and most will collect dust as a result. Always buy mid-end or better.

Low-level tech is generally used for applications that won't increase in hardware requirements anytime soon like browsing and office applications. I can still use an old Android tablet that I bought many moons ago for about $120CAD for things like that. Hell, I used the same Llano A8-3500M-based craptop for 8 years and would have continued with it if not for the fact that the power button broke

Funnily enough, after buying a new craptop, I found a new lower skin (that surrounds the keyboard) with a power button included for my old Aspire on eBay for $15. Just for kicks, I bought it, put it on and the craptop works again. Too funny!
