Yeah, I can finally afford a cheap laptop, and it’ll be from Wal-mart cause I just got a fifty dollar gift card there. My price range is under 500, and I want an actual Laptop, not a netbook. Here’s what Wal-mart has:
Toshiba 15.6″ Satellite L455D-S5976 for $398, I trust the brand name and it’s in my price range.
HP 15.6″ Pavilion G61-511wm for $498, I’ve heard okay things about HP, but since this tops my price range and I’m a teenager with no source of income, I really don’t think this is it unless y’all tell me that the others REALLY suck.
I need a laptop to do Schoolwork, handle media, and lots of internet. I know that budget laptops are usually pretty minimal, and I’ve come to accept that. What I need to know is, which of these do you recommend/not recommend, and why?
Here’s the links on Wally World-
I do a lot of multi-tasking.
Please, guys. I really need an answer.
DON’T BUY COMPAQ believe me.
I would go for toshiba . They all can handle media, and lots of internet but at
difference speed so it’s your choice on that.
I’m fourteen and I just got a good load of money for a new laptop. I’m looking for one in the 500-600 dollar range. I want 1.6-20 ghz, 2mb of ram 120 mb hard drive a dvd burner r/w (it would be nice but i dont need it) a decent video card and nothing under a 15.4 inch screen. If a computer expert could help me that would be awesome. I also might be playing one or two older games on this computer ( call of duty 1, nfs underground) so i need a computer that can hold thouse. Thanks in advance!
Good WoW laptop under $600?
I play World of Warcraft, and my mom is always complaining that the 10GB file size is going to kill our computer or something. I think the only solution is getting a laptop that can atleast run wow on low setting with minimal lag. My desktop has 512 mb of RAM, and lags all the time, just tiny lags, when I enter a capital city for the first time, or instances, etc. I think my max budget is around 500-600 dollars. I’ll have to mow lawns and work and stuff for that even. I just want someone to recommend a cheap, but good laptop. 512 MB of RAM is good, but 1 Gb would be better. If it doesn’t ship with 1 gb, how about an expansion bay for more RAM?
For the psp, maybe around $100. I sold my used PSP on ebay for $140 (3 games and memory stick + like new).
As for buying a brand name laptop. Try checking the company website. My brother bought a brand new Dell PC off the Dell website for a great deal. If not, try Walmart, Bestbuy, circuit city etc… You could buy them on eBay for a super great deal, but i would not recommend it (most are refurbished or used)
That is one of the things Dell is advertising. They are higher priced for a machine that would be decently configured. Look on Computer Geeks site. Sometimes they have decent prices on refurbished. Nothing wrong with them, in fact can be a good thing since bad or questionable component has been caught and replaced.
