    so it needs hdmi 2.0, and hardware acceleration to play 4k60 video

    I need recommendations thanks.

    The crappy k53TA I gave her has graphics card failure now, just over 9 years old.

    $400? That kind of budget configuration will not be packed with a 4k screen dude...

    i think it's ridiculous that hdmi 2.0 still isn't standard in 2020.

    come on... what a frickin waste. They put in a iGPU that can easily do 4k60 video, yet gimp the whole damn thing with a hdmi 1.4 port.

    it's like they purposely do it so that you have to spend $600+

    Well... in order to justify that under $500 retail price, which will be cut further when sales kick in... Makers will hv to cut corners on components.
