Need laptop for my girl friend

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
My gf is looking for a laptop, and wants it to do "i don't know, I just want to be able to do whatever" . Looking for an i5 or i7 sandy bridge, 4gb of memory (with a proper dual channel, not mixed dimms), and looking for a good brand like Asus, Toshiba, Sony or maybe samsung. Looking for graphics comparable or better than an HD 6330m. 1080p display is preferred, blue ray is nice, and I personally am a fan of brushed aluminum but if it can be "pretty" that is a big plus.She likes pink in particular. I found this so far, and looking for something similar at a better price, or with better aesthetics, warranty, or specs.

If anybody cold point me to a better choice I would really appreciate it. Having a hard time finding a good variety to choose from. Thanks in advance for any help.

That is a decent deal. XoticPC has some around that price range, but they aren't "pretty." I think they look good though.

For $1000 (I know, higher price) you can get this beast of a Y580. I have been extremely impressed with my Y570, and the Y580 is even faster and better looking.

If you didn't need Blu-ray, or 1080p, you can find something much cheaper.
