Please do not triple post, use edit button.

thanks for the help guys, i really appreciate it!

why is the i5 better? i can add ram also like you said, would that help? the one you posted, its a pretty good one do you think?
the i5 is better than what? You posted an i5, I posted an i5.

You can always add RAM to a laptop. That is one thing that is interchangeable. In reality, though, 4GB is enough for most things these days.

I only recommend good systems, so to answer your question, yes.

Ideapads are the consumer level of Lenovo. They are not as sturdily made as the Thinkpads. (business level)

Because several of us that know it, HP had many problems throughout the years. Plus, their Customer Service isn't what I'd call great.

I'd also go with the Acer i5 posted earlier, it's an excellent choice.

Lenovo isn't bad. Their consumer level laptops (Thinkpads) are not as well made.

Yeah, back then they were rather tough. Their newest models, not so much.

Don't trust people at BB. They are salesmen, they are tryiing to sell a product, not necessarily caring about your needs. I meant that slightly.

Any laptop can game. How hardcore it is able has to do with CPU/GPU power, and ample cooling. Toshiba used to be a big hit for gaming a few years ago. But the thing is, to get a lot of gaming performance, you have to spend a lot. Superb gaming laptops can go for ~$1,000 and up.
