Need cheap laptop with these req ->

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Budget = <$500
Required
- Good touchpad with buttons
- High res screen (higher than 1366x768?) Would love but I can do without if other things are nice.
- Doesn't create a lot of heat
- HDMI Port


Would like but can live without
- Large screen size 17"3
- Overall quality / quality material
- Stylish
- Doesn't look cheap

Not required
- Windows
- Fast hardware (although sufficiently fast to do normal day2day tasks)
- Being able to play games( although i'm not suggesting crippled hardware, just i'm not going to be playing games)
- Big HDD
- Battery that last long
- Doesn't need to be light

So overall what I want is a laptop that is good quality but not required to have fast hardware. e.g a good line of laptops that is configured on the lower end hardware.

Thnx

What games do you expect to play on a 500 dollar laptop?

You could look into lenovo, they always have deals on their site, and the laptops are well built. Great keys and really responsive touch pad.

Are you talking new or used here?

Here's a good 500 dollar low budget gaming laptop.

http://store.acer.com/store/acerna/en_US/pd/productID.267354500/parentCategoryID.60084600/

This is probably the only best 500 dollar low budget gaming laptop you can find on the market that is new.
It has AMD A10-4600m + 7670m APU Crossfire which it can play any hardcore games at a playable FPS.
If you throw in a SSD like Samsung Pro, then you got yourself a beastly machine.
It has 750GB HDD which I think it is pretty big IMO.
You can either add a SSD or 1TB HDD if you want. Maybe you can add a mSATA and 1TB HDD or keep the 750GB HDD.

Well, it cost 499.99, and it is definitely most own system for 500 dollar.
