Is This a Quality Deal for Laptop?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
My Dad is looking for a new laptop it seems, and it was pointed out to me that QVC is going to have a "special value" coming up on their Dell laptops. Below is a preview link:

I'm not familiar with laptops, and am most definitely not versed in AMD CPU/APUs. Can anyone provide insight as to whether or not this is a good deal?

Thanks!

Since it's for your dad... yeah.. it's a sweet deal... I assume he doesn't need much...

That screen blows but I doubt he'd mind.. it's definitely a competitive price, I mean this thing can handle mild gaming... no BF4 or anything lol... but mild gaming...things like SC2 and Diablo namely.


Would I get it? Probably not... That screens the dealbreaker for me.
