Laptop for College help!

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
What is your maximum budget?

I would like to spend less than 600.

What country are you in?

USA

What will be the uses of this laptop?

Homework, Browsing, Gaming

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

ASUS and MSI are my favorite but I am open.

What screen size do you require?

14"-15.6"

What screen resolution do you require?

At least 1366x768.

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

All of the above are fine.

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

2+ hours

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

MW2, Black Ops, BFBC2, mainly FPS
Low to Medium settings are fine as I will have a better computer at home but being able to play at High to Max is always a plus

What operating system do you need? (if any)

AMD OS is fine. If it is a Windows PC, as long as it can be updated to Windows 7 it is fine.

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

No.

How much hard drive space do you need?

At least 320 GB

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

No.

Is there anything else we need to know?

There has been this ASUS G51XV-RX05 for sale on Newegg but I have been hesitant to buy it since it has an older CPU and also because it is a re-certified laptop. The laptop's GPU sure is attracting though

I would like some opinions on that laptop and if you guys think I should go for something with a more current processor. Thanks members of OCN!
