Hi need recommendations for a gaming/school laptop

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
What is your maximum budget? $1500

What country are you in? Singapore

What will be the uses of this laptop? Casual gaming & School work

Do you have brand loyalty or care which brands we select for you? Not really.

What screen size do you require? Anything below 15"

What screen resolution do you require? 1920x1080 would be the best, don't have much preferences though.

Games: Dota 2, GW2, CS:GO

What operating system do you need? (if any) Windows 8, Windows 7


How much hard drive space do you need? 500GB would be the minimum.


Is there anything else we need to know?

Lightweight ( preferably below 2kg )

A laptop that does not make too much noise. ( the fan I mean )

Hi I'm really new to computer parts and how each part benefits/works for the computer, so if anyone could tell me how it works I would really appreciate it. & I really need some help as to which laptop would best fit the requirements above!

Thanks everyone. :-)

Uhh, how about Lenovo IdeaPad Y500 or Y510p?
It offers what you need, and it is a pretty powerful gaming laptop.
