First laptop, low budget 450 usd ?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So I am getting my first personal laptop, took me forever to save up >_< i would save up more, but i kinda need one asap.

What is your maximum budget?

350-450 USD

What country are you in?

Shanghai, China

What will be the uses of this laptop?

School, Light gaming ( Minecraft, EVE, Ultima Online, TF2) , Lan parties.

Do you have brand loyalty or care which brands we select for you?

I love Asus but they are way outa my budget so go with anything.ThinkPads are quite awesome as well

What screen size do you require?


I need it to be portable, so 12"-15".


What screen resolution do you require?


Any as long as its not getting way too horrible
.

Are you looking to buy NEW or would refurbished/recertified/used be okay?

Either one is fine.

How long should the battery last? (Under optimal conditions, no movies/games/heavy internet)

4-6 hours would be perfect but I dont really care.

What games would you like to play with your laptop? And on what settings?

Light Gaming
EVE,Minecraft, Guild Wars 2, TF2, Ultima Online


What operating system do you need? (if any)

Windows
But I will install it myself not to waste money on OS.


Is there a certain style of laptop you want? (aluminum, black, gaming, etc.)

Well i just dont want it too look cheap (which it will be >_<). Love those Black aluminum laptops.

How much hard drive space do you need?

[COLOR="darkred"]160GB+[COLOR]

Do you need any special hardware? (blue ray, webcam, specialty ports, etc.)
None, maybe a VGA/DVI output.

Is there anything else we need to know?

No Macs please , I dont care about track pads or speakers, i will be getting wireless mouse and usign my headphones.
Would be nice to know if there is some Laptop database i could browse ? something like WoWhead but for laptops! Laptophead :O

For that price range, you could get any AMD e350 fusion based netbook. They are small, have great battery life, and great performance.
