I just pulled the trigger on this laptop, on sale at BB for $399 (I'll pick it up later today):
What I like about it, besides the price, is the following:
-Discrete graphics (AMD 7640g)
-Weight (5.5 lbs, oy my shoulders)
-Windows 7 (Can't stand Win8)
Basically, I'd like to sit on my couch with a decent laptop, play new games at decent, playable settings. I'm gonna swap out the HD for an SSD I have hanging around, and double the ram to 8 GB.
My question is this:
I can't put down more than $500 right now. Can I do better than this, proc speed/gaming wise, keeping it around 5-5.5 lbs, around $500?
Or is this BB laptop a decent deal, and should I stick with it?
Thanks in advance, peeps. Appreciate the advice.
