    Default Help picking a laptop

    So my dad agreed to buy me a laptop for school as apart of him paying for 100% of my school costs. The catch, i have to buy it from best buy because he doesn't feel like paying the entire cost upfront if he doesn't have too, and they provide a no-interest payment plan.

    Call me stupid, but i just found out what an ultra book was, i mean before i thought it was just a fancy name to sell products. But yea i prefer em over Mac books.

    http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Samsung-...&skuId=8048198

    This one looks like a good laptop, anyone have any suggestion??

    Lol okay soo i might game on it :P that and I'm going into mechatronics next year and you take a course on computer programming in c++, java, and python. Not that those require a high end computer either. If this laptop were to last me until graduate school which it probably will, the masters im aiming for spends a whole semester programming 3d virtual worlds (entertainment technology) so it would be immensely useful

    You must be joking. If not, then you seriously need to get educated.

    ...And you still don't need an i7 for that. You can run most modern games with an i4 (depending on the GPU). It's not like you're going to be running any hardcore games on max with an ultrabook (a fancy word for a slim laptop) anyway; that's what a gaming rig is for, derp.

    Make sure you have at least 4-8 gigs of RAM, and look up the GPU benchmarks. Be fair to your father because he's the one that's paying for it all. Get what you need, not what you want.
