Default Which Laptop for Blogging ... ?

I need to get an inexpensive, small (10-12 inch) laptop for blogging and uploading pictures when I travel up the Pacific Coast this summer .....*

Has anyone used a laptop for blogging while car camping ... ? What would you recommend ... ? I don't want something that is too slow. I will be tethering the laptop to my smartphone for Internet, and uploading pictures to my blogs from USB Thumb Drives.

Also, what would be a good Blog Website ... ?

I also got the Crave 50000mAh PowerPack to use with my laptop, which should provide many hours of additional use .... I will be testing the Crave 50000mAh PowerPack soon to see just how many additional hours of use I can get with my laptop .....

Originally, I wanted to have a much smaller and less expensive laptop, like either a 12-inch or 13-inch, but after researching, I decided to go with the Dell Inspiron 17-inch 8th Generation i7 5700, and since I do not have a desktop computer, this will now be my main computer.

Lots of great features > DVD/CD Burner > HDMI > Bluetooh > WiFi > SD Card Reader > 4 USB ports (1 is USB Type-C) > Backlit Keyboard > Webcam > 32GB RAM (I had the Geek Squad install another 16GB stick) > 2 HD slots, so I can add a 500GB SSD, which I will do soon > Headphone/Speaker Jack > Ethernet.

The one serious complaint that I have is the battery life is NOT good ... !!! This will be a serious problem while on the road traveling.

I'm testing my laptop while camping for a few days at a local campsite. Have to connect via Tethering from my Note 8. I like the keyboard. Still getting used to the track-pad ... Stereo Speakers are nice, and loud enough.

Another issue ... I keep losing Bluetooth connection, so I have to constantly reconnect my headphones, mouse, earbuds, speakers, even hard-wired earbuds/speakers.

If all you are doing is blogging then you could use a midrange laptop. The lower priced $300 laptops are so underpowered that after a couple of years you are ready to throw it out the window. I have used a low end it does well just have to turn off the antivirus and everything else or I will be loading for an hour and a half.

If you need a laptop mainly for blogging, I'd say don't go for a laptop with high specifications. You get mid range laptops costing around $500 which would fulfil your purpose I believe.

Any laptop is fine, i think you can go for refurbished HP Elitebook/Probook with 4GB RAM, this will be good for you.
