I'm getting a Laptop
« on: July 23, 2013, 11:04:45 PM »
I am getting a laptop for my first year of college. I am not looking to break the bank here. I would like to stay under $1,000. What do you guys like in laptops at that price range. I look to you guys because I have no idea of what good specs are for a laptop.

"Good" depends on what you want to use it for. A good laptop for one purpose is not necessarily a good laptop for another purpose.

What is your intended use case?
I'm going to side with the white supremacists.

If it is only to be used for school purposes, you can spend a whole lot less than $1k.  If you are not planning to use it for gaming, you can get one for around $400 that will meet all of your writing and internet needs.

I'm gonna do a little bit of gaming. I know that I'm not going to spend $1k that was just my maximum price. probably going to be more in the $600-$800 price range.
