Hi, guys I'm looking to buy a new laptop. The one I have now is a Acer Aspire 8730, GREAT laptop for the gaming that I do. However, next semester I'm taking a Intro to Windows 7 course, and would like to have a computer with windows 7 on it. (Taking this as an easy elective).
However rather than just buying a laptop for one class, I wanted one that is portable, the one I have now is 20" and wont even fit in my laptop backpack. I'll be taking it to work every day and then to a restaurant with WiFi for anywhere from 4-8 hours while I wait for my girlfriend to get out of her work. I'll be doing light gaming and web browsing, Runescape will probably be the hardest game this thing has to run.
I have a computer in mind and I would prefer to buy off newegg, as I have a card with them that will get me no interest for 12 months if paid in full
. The computer I have in mind is,
Newegg.com - HP Pavilion dv4-2160us NoteBook Intel Core i5 430M(2.26GHz) 14.1" Wide XGA 4GB Memory 320GB HDD 7200rpm DVD Super Multi Intel HD Graphics
Here is a list of things I am looking for:
Price: Prefer not to go much over $650
Gaming: Runscape will be the hardest it will run
Size: Prefer Light and Smaller not very picky but no 18"
Os: Windows 7
Power: I wan't the best value for my $ I really don't want to be lagging doing word processing or Runescape.
If you find a laptop with a splashboard you get extra points
If you guys do end up suggesting the computer I have picked out, is that a decent size? Not to small not to big. I'm use to the 9 pound 20" so 5 pounds and 14" like a very transportable size.
Thanks in advance
