Need help - friend going to USA soon - Which laptop?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi - friend is going to the states and is going to pick up a laptop for me.

Budget is around 700 USD, but it does not need to be maxed out

Size: 13" 14" or 15.6"
Usage: General usage
Battery: Just the classic case, does not need to be long life
HDMI: Yes
Brand: No preference, maybe Lenovo? Can be refurbished (Dell?)
Other: Core i3/i5, dedicated graphics a plus but not a must, Wifi N is a must, 10/100/1000 would be nice

Like I say - friend going to the states and I'm going to order a laptop online before he goes.

Can someone point me at some good deals?

Thanks!

Do you know what stores he's able to go to?

I would like to buy it online and ship it where he is staying (which is at family, so it can arrive before him)

get the Asus ul30vt-x1

intel c2d ultra low voltage 1.3ghz (software overclocks to 1.7ghz)
switchable intel onboard/Nvidia 210 512mb graphics
4gb ddr3 (upgradeable to 8gb)
500gb
13.3" screen 1366x768
1 inch thick,
4lbs,
10 hour battery
aluminum lid

for $661, no tax free ship.

---plays starcraft2/WoW/counterstrike/LFD2/black ops fine,
---watch 1080p hulu/netflix/youtube/apple trailers with ease.

No other laptop comes close in performace, battery life, size, and weight @ this price.

If weight/size are not an issue, than any run-of-the-mill 15" laptop with graphics can be had for $600'ish.

Whatever you choose, It would be easier if u gave/paypal your friend the money. That way, he'll be able to give the money to his relatives to order it.
