EDIT: I *think* I convinced him to get a desktop instead, ignore this post for now.


For my friend. He filled this out. I'll put some edits in red.
Thanks for any help.

What is your maximum budget?
600

What country are you in?
Canada

What will be the uses of this laptop?
Gaming His definition of 'gaming' is probably less than most of you

Do you have brand loyalty or care which brands we select for you?
Not really, i just need windows

What screen size do you require?
Biggest possible 16-17"

What screen resolution do you require?
Best resolution required. anything about like 13-1400x8-900 is fine, maybe even a little smaller

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)
Long life battery. I'm not sure what the normal battery life is these days, my laptop lasts like 30 minutes, lol. Like 1.5 hours+ should be fine, unless that is too high, I don't really know.

What games would you like to play with your laptop? And on what settings? Bioshock, WoW, Minecraft. Settings dont matter. probably low.

What operating system do you need? (if any)
Windows 7 would be nice

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

How much hard drive space do you need? 500gb

Do you need any special hardware? (blue ray, webcam, specialty ports, etc.)
Webcam

Is there anything else we need to know?
no
