post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Helllo guys, this is my first thread here and i hope you can help me.

What is your maximum budget?
$ 1200

What country are you in?
Peru, but im going to USA in 3 weeks

What will be the uses of this laptop?
I will use the laptop to play some games and watching movies, nothing special.

Do you have brand loyalty or care which brands we select for you?
I really dont care much about the brand but i like Dell because they are big and very resistant and they have good video cards.

What screen size do you require?
Between 14 and 17

Are you looking to buy NEW or would refurbished/recertified/used be okay?
I would like a new laptop

How long should the battery last? (Under optimal conditions, no movies/games/heavy internet)
The battery should last atleast 3 hours

What games would you like to play with your laptop? And on what settings?
HON/DOTA 2 on high settings

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

How much hard drive space do you need?
Not sure how much, but quite a lot

Do you need any special hardware? (blue ray, webcam, specialty ports, etc.)
Blue ray would be aweesome but its not necessary

Is there anything else we need to know?
I was looking at the alienware laptops but i think they are just to much since i wont play so many games. I really like the how the alienware look but wont pay $500 more just for the details.

I really hope you can help me guys. Thank you
