My younger brother is looking for a new laptop and I would like to ask overclock for some inputs to help make a final decision before buying a laptop.

What will be the uses of this laptop?
School (matlab, microsoft office, cad, etc), web surfing, Youtube'ing, and perhaps some gaming.

Do you have brand loyalty or care which brands we select for you?
Lenovo or Asus.

What screen size do you require?

What screen resolution do you require?
Any, if possible would like to avoid 1366x768 or lower

Are you looking to buy NEW or would refurbished/recertified/used be okay?
New please.

How long should the battery last? (Under optimal conditions, no movies/games/heavy internet)
5 hours would be great.

What games would you like to play with your laptop? And on what settings?
- Left 4 dead 2, Counter Strike: Global Offensive, Payday, Team Fortress 2, Minecraft, Torchlight 2, Terraria. On med to high.
- Games are listed only if possible, if not, that is okay as well.

What operating system do you need? (if any)

Is there a certain style of laptop you want? (aluminum, black, gaming, etc.)
Any would be fine.

How much hard drive space do you need?
Any, just no SSD.

Do you need any special hardware? (blue ray, webcam, specialty ports, etc.)
720p+ Webcam, hdmi is a plus

Is there anything else we need to know?
Would like to own Intel cpu's and nvidia gpu's
I don't mind waiting for deals and help searching for deals in August.

Thank you for your time.
