600-700$ laptop - Which?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
What is your maximum budget?
$700

What country are you in?
U.S

What will be the uses of this laptop?
Mostly for word processing, web browsing, light gaming

Do you have brand loyalty or care which brands we select for you?
No preferences

What screen size do you require?
15.4

What screen resolution do you require?
Anything really

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

How long should the battery last? (Under optimal conditions, no movies/games/heavy internet)
Doesn't matter

What games would you like to play with your laptop? And on what settings?
Blizzard games, other FPS. I want to be able to play whatever comes out but I don't care if the settings have to be pushed low. Basically I want a dedicated card for video but I'm not looking for anything special.

What operating system do you need? (if any)
Windows 7, pref 64bit

Is there a certain style of laptop you want? (aluminum, black, gaming, etc.)
No

How much hard drive space do you need?
At least 5400RPM SATA, at least 100GB

Do you need any special hardware? (blue ray, webcam, specialty ports, etc.)
Not needed but a plus:
Webcam /w mic
HDMI out - def not needed though
Built in Bluetooth adapter
num pad / no numpad
The type of keys that make a sound when hit, if that's even possible


Is there anything else we need to know?
This is mostly for troll'n the intarwebz, school, and light gaming - so I don't need much. I will have productivity software taken care of.

I'm thinking 4Gb RAM to start. I know 5400RPM is not ideal for gaming, since I don't plan on much gaming I'm not super worried about this. If I need to I'm not shy of replacing with a 7200 later on.

I'd prefer to buy from Newegg TBH, but if you know of a good deal from another reputable e/retailer I'll look at it

It's been a while since I sold laptops and haven't really kept up on any tech, thanks for all of the help!
