Need advice buying a new laptop
Hi everyone! My name is Alex, and I got a laptop as a Christmas gift about two years ago, and I am looking to replace it with something of better quality. I am an avid gamer and also in college, so I am looking for something that will run high-requirement games without a problem, yet will also be sufficient for the research and basic Microsoft program (Word, Excel, Powerpoint etc.) use that will be necessary for my studies.
I am not very educated on computer specs and what to look for in a good laptop, which is why I came here! My budget is about $700 or so (probably flexible within a $150 range), and I am willing to buy something gently used or refurbished, but of good quality. Basically, I need some advice as to what to look for and where I can find it for a good price!
Here are my current specs:
Windows 188.8.131.5201 (Service Pack 1)
AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual-Core Processor TK-42
VIDEO CARD MODEL:
ATI Radeon HD 3200 Graphics
VIDEO CARD MEMORY:
VIDEO CARD DRIVER:
1366x768 (Subject to change, I switch between using my laptop screen and using my TV as a monitor, this is my TV res)
HARD DISK SIZE:
HARD DISK FREE SPACE:
84.63 GB (38%)
773.41 kB/s (6.3 mbps)
All help is MUCH appreciated my friends!
