I'mma be buying a laptop soon, and I wanted to see if any of yall had any recommendations as to which one I should buy…..

But there’s a stipulation, I wanna stay within the 300-400$ dollar range. I know that really limits the Laptops I can get, but I’m going to be buying a car later too, so I ain’t tryna drop a thousand on a computer right now.

So if anybody, has a laptop within this range and it works really well, pls post below, or if you know a lot about laptops drop some recommendations below.

Thnx

It’s an Alienware, I got one a couple years back, it is pretty expensive as its a Gaming Laptop. Its about as close, performance wise, as you can get to a good desktop.
I payed 2500$ for mine but with a lot of extra options.
Its the biggest purchase I’ve ever made but I don’t regret it, it easily supports my gaming and my video editing (for which I need a solid system).

Just for info, for the 2500, it’s a AlienWare m17X:
17.6" Full HD 1080p display
Intel Core I-7 2.40GHz
GeForce GTX 560M
16Gb RAM
500Gb Hard Drive

If you don’t have too high requirements a ThinkPad should do. They’re a not really expensive and good

Windows 8 is not bad, at least not worse than Windows 7(not meaning 7 is the worst there is), because since I upgraded from 7 to 8 I can still do the same as on 7 plus many new cool things.
PS: Windows 8 Looks pretty much the same while you’re on the Desktop app

Do you Need the Laptop just for work or do you also want to Play games?
