Default looking for a new laptop

for around $500 this is what im looking at so far: Toshiba - Satellite Laptop / Intel® Core™ i3 Processor / 15.6" Display / 6GB Memory / 640GB Hard Drive - Platinum - P755-S5215
but please if anyone has a better one for around same price, do share. DONT want a dell though ahha, rather like a toshiba

has to be able to run photoshop. I dont play games on it so it doesnt have to have super awesome GPU, but I DO watch a lot of youtube videos so idk if that matters. I dont upload them though. besides that ill just use it for the internet and photoshop really, but I want it to last and stay fast, not some ****ty *** computer

so yeah, around $500, thanks

is that one good?

Then we won't recommend a Dell. It wouldn't be my first pick, either.

I can tell you from experience, an i3 can run PS. I use CS5 fine on my i3 2100 CPU. That's a desktop, though.

Youtube videos won't matter at all. Uploading them would take more of your router and ISP.

****ty *** is not in my vocabulary.

This is a little lower specced than your link, but: Newegg.com - TOSHIBA Satellite C655-S5339 Notebook Intel Pentium B950(2.10GHz) 15.6" 4GB Memory DDR3 1333 320GB HDD 5400rpm DVD Super Multi Intel HD Graphics

Gateway NV57H20u Notebook Intel Core i3 2310M(2.10GHz) 15.6" 6GB Memory 500GB HDD 5400rpm DVD Super Multi Intel HD Graphics 3000

similar for a lot cheaper if you haven't purchased your laptop yet.
