    Default Looking to purchase a new laptop. Suggestions?
    Hey there

    I'm looking to get a new computer because mine currently is crap. It can't even run Starcraft I, a game which was released in 1998. I have restored several times, but I think its time to get a new one. I would be getting a laptop, for obvious reasons (portability). Here are what I would use it for:

    -Surfing the web
    -Schoolwork (Microsoft Office is a must)
    -Some graphics (mainly GIMP. Maybe Photoshop, if I end up buying it)
    -Listening to music
    -Casual downloading
    -Very casual gaming. Maybe 1 or 2 games. I already have an Xbox 360 so I would use the PC for games that aren't console based (Starcraft I, Starcraft II, etc)

    My price range is $600-$900. I do NOT plan on getting a MacBook. Don't tell me to get a MacBook.

    You said you would like one in your first post but overpriced. Check around you can find some deals on them. So I am with westerman on the MacBook idea.

    a mac book is about $900. whick is within your price range. if you don't want one, I say sony. Even though they run an inferior OS, they are some of the best windows machines.

    If you get the ASUS, grab a regular Win7 CD, re-partition the HDD, install just Win7. Entirely too much gloat-ware on those machines.

    I have an HP I got 2 years ago. It runs WoW at mid-ish settings at like 30fps.

    PS- the new HPs look like MBPs.

    Beautiful in appearance, but not in performance.

    Well, for some. Pavilion dv6/t isn't a bad choice.

    You might try searching for the underground companies that make great comps for a lot less than sony, toshiba, HP, or gateway.
