Refurbished HP or DELL laptops, get one for about $500 and add RAM or get one with 16GB ram for $600. Check out the business laptops from HP or DELL before the consumer models. They will be built to last longer and have less 'fluff' like audio, BT, etc. If you see one with an SSD in your price range get that one and add RAM. IMHO you will need at least 500 GB disk (preferably SSD) and all the RAM you can get. Processor speed is the least of your worries but try to get at least a sixth gen intel (preferred) or comparable AMD.
