Screen size?
HDD space?
CPU?
Gaming or just everyday use?
RAM amount/limit?

I guess your in the US?
Does your college give you any special deals?

screen size, just average, so around 15ish. but im not too picky. just not an eepc or anything like that.
hd space: the more the merrier, but anything over 250 is fine
cpu: i havent been in the computer market for a few years, so i have no clue whats good at the moment
everyday use, but i might play some games on it occasionally
ram: 4gb atleast

Hi there,

What kind of games are you planning on playing? Will you need a dedicated graphics card? If so, you may need to spend more than $500.
