Default need help with $5-600 laptop.

I would like some help figuring a good laptop to get. I am not sure what the good things to look for are. I'm looking for the best laptop in the 5 to 600 dollar range. Not much more than 6. Thank you for any suggestions!

What exactly are you wanting to be doing with the laptop?

General use really, internet, a few older games like oblivion or deus ex if possible. Skyrim on lower settings also if possible.

I really like HP or Lenovo laptops. I would recommend the Lenovo G50-59433840. It has a decent amount of ram for your gaming usage and has plenty of power for just internet use. Plus, the price is only $450 at Best Buy.

After looking around I have discovered that a high quality screen and add player are important things to look for as well.

Bad auto correct and bad proof reading. Add player was supposed to be "a DVD player"

If you find a really good laptop at a decent price without a DVD drive, you can always get an external one for cheap.
