  1. Hello all,


    School is starting soon and my parents said I have a budget of about $700 for a new laptop because my desktop is broken. What kind of laptop would you recommend that leans probably 40% towards schoolwork and 60% towards gaming?

    Bestbuy has a nice HP laptop that is on sale for $699. I think the specs are good and good graphics card too.

    Otherwise, what do YOU recommend?

    Would a Dell Vostro 1400 be a good choice for a budget around $700 because the specs are quite nice? However, I never had a dell so can't really tell how reliable they are compare to other name brands.

    Well lDell's business line is mostly better but since Vostro is a new line I can't verfiy the different between Inspiron and Vostro lines but I do know the Latitude line is a very good choice.
