I'm browsing around trying to find a lighter replacement for an old 15" 2.4GHz C2D gaming laptop. Had a 9800M (maybe comparable to GT630M?)...not terribly concerned about it (pretty much only plays things like WOW/LOL/Facebook now), but I need as much IGPU as I can get, so Ivy 4k or a decent AMD APU. Not sure if any of the pentium/celerons come with an HD4000.
I'm pretty sure I can't get a lighter laptop without shrinking screen size (or busting budget), but if I can get at least 14" 1366x768 that'd be fine. If there are light weight 15" units in the price range even better...
Unfortunately the budget is $475 or less but I need a 7200RPM HDD at least...or one at a lower price so I can get a faster HDD/SSD. Not sure if SSD cache can make up for a slow HDD, so I'm still avoiding anything with a 5400RPM in it. Storage isn't a big concern, 128GB SSD would be fine.
I'd like to get at least decent build quality if possible...and wifi performance/connection is really important too. I can probably do a refurb if it were good quality to begin with. Some of those Dell outlet sales would have been nice (like a 14z maybe)...but don't see any now. I do need this pretty quick... that's why I'm asking here. Get a couple of you guys to help and speed up the process
