Cheap laptop recommendation for Kali Linux

I’m trying to get my security skills back up and need a cheap laptop to run Kali on. There are some issues with the new MacBook’s and 11.3 with Kali and airport or usb WiFi adapters so I want to go native.

The last time I tried Linux on a laptop it was driver hell so looking for recommendations.

I’m using it in VMware Fusion Pro/Workstation on a 2014 MBA.

Hmm. I tried it in Virtual Box and had issues with WiFi. I can try VMware. Are you on high Sierra?

I haven’t tried since upgrading to high Sierra though. There’s a trial of fusion right?
