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

Laptops are notoriously expensive and finding one that suits your needs can be difficult.  At around 600.00 you may be stuck with intel graphics which is not really what you want.  Even with light gaming with current games your going to want one with an nvidia video card in it.  I suggest maybe saving a bit more money to get one you will be happy with.  I like the options you can get at xoticpc.com maybe you can find one there that suits your needs.

You may find a refurbished on on one of the manufacturers sites, they usually come with a warranty.

Honesty & Integrity Above All!
