Hey,guys not sure if this is the right thread,but i am looking to buy a laptop for WoW. One that isn't more then $500. I was wodering if any of you,which I know you do,have an idea of what I need. I would rather buy at Wal-Mart as well due to the fact that our town isn't very big and that my mom works there so we get 10% off which isn't much,but would help.
Please help me.
Looked around HP and wasn't too many below 500 except for the minis and guess you don't want that, found a http://www.shopping.hp.com/webapp/shopping/store_access.do?template_type=series_detail&category=notebooks&series_name=g6t_series&jumpid=in_R329_prodexp/hhoslp/psg/notebooks/promo_tile/1/lp_promo_tile1_HP_g6t_622 (lol wow didn't think that link was that long) anyway, you would want to upgrade to a higher graphics card and put on those free upgrades it has
Here is the config from HP I did on this
Color:Would stay the same I guess lol unless you want to pay$25:)
Recovery:None(You could add it on I guess if you want to pay more)
Total Care:None(It's like $80 if you want HPs support so lol)
Bundle:None(Around $220-$320 for a bundle)
Processor:Eh, I would upgrade this a little if you had extra money around your house lol.I would get the Intel(R) Core(TM) i3-380M Dual Core Processor (2.53 GHz, 3MB L3 Cache) or if you really have money get the Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-480M Dual Core Processor (2.66GHz, 3MB L3 Cache) with Turbo Boost up to 2.93GHz(Warning:Using these choices will put you over $500 so if you don't have the money stay with the default option.
Graphics:512MB DDR3 Radeon(TM) HD 6470M Graphics[HDMI, VGA] and if you have money then 1GB DDR3 Radeon(TM) HD 6470M Graphics [HDMI, VGA].
Memory:FREE Upgrade to 4GB DDR3 System Memory (2 Dimm)
Hard Drive:Default option yet again if extra money you could get 500GB 7200RPM Hard Drive
Office Software:Default Option
Battery:Default(Only one anyway lol)
Second Battery:Eh you may want to get the 2nd but it's really expensive but meh.
Rest:Default or none :).
With the first suggestions I said it comes out to:
With the first suggestion+ the Intel I3
With my main suggestions including battery:
I am not a major computer guy either lol, just giving you a estimate of what you are looking for, to me this computer looks "Ok" just due to your amount of money some of the things are lacking a little.
