not only use for school work such as writing papers, making power-points, etc. But I also need to be able to

play my 'WarCraft' game and have internet. I don't really know all that much about computers, as you can

see but I would really like your help. So if you could please tell me your recommendation of what

specific brand/type of lap-top I should get, that would be very much appreciated. Thank you. And if it helps

Any laptop they sell new will work. It would take a OLD(say 5 years old) laptop to not be able to play that game.

When buying a laptop just look on the box for its specs and make sure the thing has more than the min. requirements for the game and your set.
