Laptop help!!! and GOOD NEWS!!!

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Alright well I had already made this thread in a different thread and i asked what are some good laptops that can play games for under $400. Now im in a different situation. I talked to my parents about it and they said that since me and my brother are going to attend college they will buy me a laptop and my brother a laptop. They didnt give me a price range but all my mom said is that to get one that is good for a good price. Now if i was just some Spoiled kid i would get latest republic of gamers laptop and say that its what I "NEED" but im not that type of person. And i know my parents didnt give me a price range but all in need is to play games such as League of legends,minecraft, BF3, sims, counterstrike, dirt 3, left for dead, mass effect 1 2 and 3, garry's mod, bioshock infinite, borderlands 1 and 2, fable and trine. At decent settings. Im not looking to max them out of my laptop, I can already do that on my desktop. ALSO (VERY IMPOTENT) Since my parents are buying two laptops at once my mom said that it would be best if we can pay in payments. So anyone you guys know where we can pay in payments that has a 0 interest rate or maybe a low interest rate? Any help will be awesome
thanks

Have you considered buying from Ebay? Generally G53'sgo for around 500-600 and they will still allow you to game quite well save for turning down the settings a tad and less AA

The Lenovo y400/500 would probably suit your needs though, around 700-800 slickdeals has the refurbs for around 600. You might be able to doa payment plan with the lenovo site directly though

so financing within a store? What stores are in your area?

Does financing extend your budget?

I think it does. And my parents like what newegg is offering. 0 interest for 12 mouths if you spend $500 or more. And we came across this one (link below) and my parents would have to pay $126 a month for both of them. So around $63 for each.

This would be significantly better

I would disagree 100%
1. It's refirbished
2. Warranty sucks
3. Small screen
4. Bulky
5. I think the 660 is weaker than the 730
6. It's a I5. The acer is a I7

1. Its 100 less than the Acer
2. Check the reviews for the specific item and see that there is no problems with Asus recertified laptops.
3. The screen is the same for the laptop you mentioned, so this point is mute. Furthermore, you can replace the panel later to a 1600x900 panel on the G46
4. Sure, however will very likely have a significantly cooler machine overall as it has separate heat pipes for CPU and GPU
5. The 660m is overall much better than the 730m, the 730m is based off the 645m just clocked higher, so its closer to a 650m but still not a contender to the 660m
6. You don't need an i7, and i5 will suit your needs perfectly. Also the G46 is socketed so you can change the cpu and sell the original chip for when you actually need the extra horsepower

Well its kinda too late for me. 2 days ago i bought the acer. And i think the I7 will help me with my video editing and streaming and what not
