Thread Starter 
for high school?

anyone have an idea? Must be less then $1,000 not looking for something too powerful....but would like at least a dual core...possibly a 13-15.6" screen...would like 4 gigs of ram and probably a recommendation for a good ssd.

Yeah? Sounds enticing yet, overpriced...

The Sager NP5165 can be had for $950 shipped and has the i5-2430, GT 555m, 4GB ram, etc...

Not to mention a 1080p screen. Just sayin'. You can get better for your money.

Get a Dell XPS L502X.

Make sure it has:
* Backlit keyboard
* 2630QM processor
* 525M or 540M graphics card.

You can upgrade the RAM yourself. It uses DDR3 1333mhz (DDR3-1333) (PC3-10600) and is 204-pin. Costs only $40 off ebay for a 4GB stick.

You can buy one for $1000 new.
