Help Picking Laptop

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
hey guys im looking to pick up a laptop for general use and some gaming and could use some input. This will be my main computer untill I can find a decient job so i want it to be as good as I can get it

the only two requirements are 1- it has to be from best buy (using my bb card to get this) 2- it has to be under 450

currently im looking at a 15.6in gateway with an A6-3400 quad core and 6520g GPU

http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Gateway+-+Laptop+/+AMD+A-Series+Processor+/+15.6%26%2334%3B+Display+/+4GB+Memory+-+Ebony+Black/3438983.p?id=1218402137482&skuId=3438983

Unfortunately the asus K3s that were at best buy are no longer available mad.gif

Thanks for the help thumb.gif

That's the spirit! I seriously am considering that as well but I have no idea how long I would need to wait.
