Hi guys.

What sort of specs (reasonably priced) should I get if I get a laptop soon. I dont want to use it for any major games or anything. Just a good laptop for net use and standard computer use. :)

As always - post your [approximate] budget first.

Generally, if you need just:


Web-surfing
Office tools
E-mail

on your laptop - get Sony Vaio :)

^^^^ What EscondeR said.

Reasonably priced means different things to different people.

When I used to build and sell system for a living, at least once a week I'd get someone come in and ask for a "high-end gaming computer, that plays all the latest games at maximum detail, but not expensive".

"Standard computer use" also can mean many things.

Details please!

for just "normal stuff" like those mentioned by esconder, you could get a steal with an eeePC.

What would you both recommend for a high-end gaming laptop with a budget of, say, $1000-$1200?

I'd really prefer a 17" screen as that's what I'm used to now and e-mail/web browsing is needed as well :tmb:

thanks! :wve:

^ According to your budget - ASUS G series:

The Gaming series (http://www.asuslaptop.co.uk/products.php?cat=56) is a blast, but expensive... You can buy THIS (http://www.asuslaptop.co.uk/proddetail.php?prod=Asus_Laptop_G1SN-AK014C) one from G series :tmb:

I agree with EscondeR; ASUS G series is way to go.

Maximum budget, probably 450. :)

Edit: If anyone can suggest a good amount of RAM for the budget and other specs. It would really help. :D
