Looking for a new laptop. Any advice?
So my mom is looking to get herself a new laptop, since her 5 year old Toshiba isn't quite cutting it. I'm more of a desktop guy, and don't really know where to look in the laptop industry. She will be using it for surfing, movies & media, and gaming(not very demanding games though). The only real limitations are that it should have a minimum screen size of 17", the larger the better. The budget is 700-800, but we'll be looking for one used. MSRP comparative budget would be about 1000-12000. The asus G70 series comes to mind, but I feel like it won't be pushed graphically nearly enough to justify the price. Any other ideas?
