yeah i could use some recommendations as well. Around 1000 or so for a laptop for me lol. I'm going to college this year so I'm going to need one soon. What would be a good laptop for college (along with some gaming I suppose but I don't need hardcore graphics)? Are the intel core 2 duo for the laptops good or should I get AMD?

So you (guys) want t laptop that will game and surf the net?

This laptop won't be as good as a desktop as gaming, seeing as it's prebuilt, but it will be good for the money. It's normally $1400, but it's $50 off.

No offense, but does your laptop have integrated intel graphics or dedicated graphics?

You can buy the parts yourself like I did and I got away with it for less than $1000.

The Dell is way worse. The video card in it is crappy, and to get a half-decent one, you have to pay $230 onto the already higher price than the ASUS.
