My budget for the new computer is: Under $580 (Canadian Dollars!)
What are the primary uses for this computer (IE: mail, web browsing, programming, games, etc)? Light Gaming
What software do you intend on using on the computer? games with infrequent music/video encoding
Do you play games? If so, what type of games? anywhere from indie to AAA titles. No need to be super pretty though
Do you tend to have a lot of programs running at the same time, or do you close every program when you are done using it? Usually I'll have some sort of VOIP program running, a game, IRC client, Music Player and browser
Do you store a lot of pictures or music on the computer? HDD is irrelevant here
Will you be overclocking? No
Location for online shopping/shipment/prices? Canada
How many monitors are you planning to use? The one provided with the laptop
Do you need peripherals? OS? No. Any version of Windows post-Vista
Any particular reason why you are upgrading? My Samsung ****top bit the bucket (thank god)
Please note I'm looking for a laptop with good build quality! Manufacturers recommended to me so far are Asus, MSI and Lenovo. I'm open to ideas though.
I want at least 6 gigs of RAM. If there's less it needs to be compatible with the two sitcks of 4GB that came with my Samsung NP355V5C
Screen should be 15.6 inches with a 720p resolution
