Hiya. My friend is going abroad to study and will likely be away from home fora period of 3-5 years. During this time, my friend of course won't have a wholelot of cash to work with, but will attempt to also find work while abroad.I don'tknow my friends budget I'm afraid, but I'm wanting to aim for something belowthe average cost of a 13" and/or 15" Macbook Pro. I think that's like 999$. Both $and £ will work for suggestions. My friend does a lot of the standard office kind of work: powerpoints, document-pushingand just maybe, the occasional spreadsheet. Other than that, my friend is a bit of agamer, liking to play Free To Play games like League of Legends. However, the possibilityexists that my friend might take up StarCraft 2 as well. On top of this, there's the usualbrowsing of video-sharing and blog-posting websites. To top it all off, my friend also engagesand will engage more in image and video-editing. Thus it has to be a laptop and it has to be a decent one which can do a bit of everything.Since this is to attempt to beat the steep pricing of a mac, I'd like for any suggestions to stay below 999$. However if it's a very good deal, suggestions of above that are also welcome. P.S. I'm just doing this to help my friend, but I'm also helping my friend with many other things related to this. . But it's a bit much, so I thought I'd perhaps be able to crowd-source some help =). My friend however hasn't requested help at all, so it's also a bit of a "surprise" Thank you.
