| | Looking for a new laptop...
As much as I hate being that guy being spoonfed information, I've been very out of the loop this year as far as computers go. I've never owned a laptop and I'm looking into finally buying one this year.
I'm a college student and I want a laptop that can play games well (Red Orchestra 2, maxed out preferably).
I have about $600 to spend, and I'm hoping to pick-up a good deal on Cyber Monday.
As far as actual specs go, this is what I know I want:
- At least 4gb of DDR3 RAM
- 2.3 Ghz+ processor
- Dedicated GPU
- Reliable brand (this is where I'm very lost)
- Has good little features, such as a backlit keyboard, USB ports, little things that you techies like.
Any help would be super appreciated!
Edit: Been looking at Lenovo and HP laptops, generally speaking, how are those? Also, I have been doing research using Google and such. I'm learning, but I want some opinions from people that I'm sure are a tad more experienced than the general consumer, or least not total scrubs, anyways.
