I've finished school and need a laptop for university next year. I will be studying engineering so I don't think it has to be amazing, but it does need to be able to run at least some engineering programs and crunch some data (in a reasonable amount of time of course). I would of also like to be able to play a game called ARMA 2 Operation Arrowhead (for DayZ).
I came across this laptop for $649.00 AUD
Specs are as follows,
Intel Core i7-2637M 1.70 GHz 4MB Cache
10 GB DDR3 SDRAM

Here is the link as well (I understand why you may not want to click it though...) BONUS: 6GB RAM (TOTAL 10GB) - Acer Aspire M3-581TG NX.RYKSA.006-C77 i7 2637M 1.70Ghz, 4GB RAM, 500GB, 20GB SSD, 15.6\" LED, Nvidia GT640M 1GB, WIN 7 Home Prem - Centre Com
I have three questions.
Is this good value for money?
Can I do what I want with this system?
If not. What would you recommend?
Thank you for taking the time to help me out (:
