Help finding a family laptop

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
I need help finding a laptop for my family, the current one just died due to water damage. Looking for one in the $600 price range with a 15" screen, doesn't need any gaming capabilities.

lenovos are great and durable. You can get one in newegg that has a nice video card too! Take a look! My daughter has one and these lenovos were originally designed for business men or students who are always on the move. I have an old one too with a pentium 3 - it is old, runs xp but still works great! They take a licking and keep on ticking! If you like, please give me a rep.

HP Probook 4520s? I dunno, but that has been a popular one recently. We used to sell 30 of those every monday for a while there.

HP's suck. I had a pavilion dv5t and had it shipped to HP twice and on the third time they finally replaced. Then replacement went back for a screen issue. I will never buy another HP. My kids Lenovo blows my HP out of the water. Lenovo has won awards for their designs.

Looking at the fusion apu laptops. Is this Acer Aspire with the e-350 any good? http://www.microcenter.com/single_pr...uct_id=0354446
The most I can see this thing being used for is netflix and dvds and maybe some flash gaming, would this be enough?

Slightly Off topic: Why does it seem like most laptop makers are off setting the trackpad...
