    low -end laptop

    Hi,

    Could anyone say me what does "low-end laptop" convey?

    I asked someone and he said me it means "low cost laptop" but It sounds me quite wrong. any suggestion?
    I've also encountered the expression "high-end servers". That's why I think that that meaning given to me would be wrong.

    It means 'low cost' to me, too — the cheapest in the range.

    Re: low -end laptop

    Thank you so much, Rover

    So concluding rationally could one say that "high-end server" means "high cost server"?

    Re: low -end laptop

    On reflection, 'low cost' and 'high cost' is too simple an interpretation.

    'Low/high end' refers to the sophistication, features and performance of the appliances.

    Market forces determine the prices charged by individual retailers.

    Re: low -end laptop

    It does refer to the specifications IMO, but less powerful machines are also low price. I'd take it to refer to the chip ,memory,etc.
