500$ budget search!

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hallo. As the thread name suggests, I'm looking for a laptop/notebook for a 500$ ish budget (600 tops). Preferably something that can run games, though most of the use will be for classes (MS office for word, powerpoint, etc etc). If any game, it should run WOW (shush tongue.gif) at high settings. Any other game would be nice to have too.

Suggestions? biggrin.gif

Unfortunately what your looking for doesn't exist, you won't find a laptop than can play games well for $600. You might be able to find one that could play wow at low for that price though.

Thats what I feared. My laptop that could do it somewhat decently died, and my father wants to replace this as a xmas present, but only with the above budget :/

its even for a smaller price tag. I think it can play wow at medium-low settings with good fps

You'll only be finding mediocre performance options like the one that serp777 posted. If you're strapped for a computer, just make the sacrifice; otherwise, there's the option of just compounding some money, or opting for a no-interest financing option at a place like Best Buy.
