So, I am currently looking at buying a new laptop for heading off to college. My budget is around a $1000, maybe a couple hundred more.
I'm going to be using this for both personal use and any assignments that would be typical for a CS major. I do some gaming, though not a lot--of course, part of that is because my current computer can't really handle anything too strenuous. I watch a lot of videos online, so that is a priority for me as well. I honestly don't need a lot of storage for pictures and the like, I keep files on flash drives.
I have been looking mostly at ASUS, they seem to be good quality and decent prices.
So, my question is, is this is good? I'm looking for a step above just decent--is it necessary to put in a few extra hundred to get that?
