I know this isn't the right forum but not many others check the general one.

My lappy crashed and I must buy a new one, what should I look for in a laptop? all I'll be using it for is school and... hu ;).

What processor should I look for?
Brand?

Only thing I'm not real sure of at the moment is the processor.

faggy small laptop lol.

Well I'm assuming you aren't looking for a gaming beast considering you are only spending 500$ but around that price range I don't think there is too much diff between processors when it comes to running common applications.

So if I was you I'd just looking for size, weight and battery life mainly. I'd suggest spending an extra 100$ to upgrade the battery.

If you want specific information on which laptops are best for your price look up cnet's laptop reviews. they do a great job there of putting it all together for you.

Hope this helps..

Keep away from Acer is all I have to say. Crappiest fucking junk ever.

I play on an 2-year old Asus X72vn 17", this one can still keep up with em. I'm playing alot of Battlefield Bad Company 2 mplayer on it. So I can vouch for Asus, atleast the higher end comps.

Thanks for all the help fellas. these are the two comps that ive found. just would like some opinions.

One says dedicated graphics and the other has a graphics card by the looks of it. The one has an i3 processor and the other an amd dual core.

which to get O_O?

Don't have much time to look at them, but generally onboard dedicated graphics maxes at 720p when playing movies while better graphics cards will give you 1080p.

I know that is a biggie for me, again look for size weight and battery life. And I REALLY recommend battery upgrade for around 100 bucks if you have the chioce.
