    Default Need Good Laptop for College

    So I've been searching around a bit for a nice laptop for college, however I would also like to play games on it as well, but I keep running into the same problem... I don't know much about computer specs. Luckily I have such good friends here at CL that just so happen to be computer wizards (or at least compared to me).

    Now here's one I just found recently, it's a Samsung. The only thing, as far as I know, that doesn't seem like enough is the low memory.




    So what here is great, decent, or otherwise for a college/gaming PC? If you find something better or know of just a better computer in general please inform me. I do have a budget of like $500 (though less is preferred) so yeah.

    Many thanks.

    It doesn't have to be cheap. Also I hate Toshibas, I'd rather use my dick as a lightning rod

    I usually just take out the battery and keep it plugged in until I need to take it somewhere. Does Winders 8 have the task bar yet?

    Yeah dude. If you buy this it'll be update 8.1

    If you do decide on it get the i3 edition then this amd one it does cost a bit more but your better off.

    The 16GB SSD is because SSD's load programs like 4x faster than when the program is on a HDD on this case it most likely has your OS installed on the SSD so that it will load fast.
    Get an external HDD theyre cheap nowadays imo something like 500GB - 1TB will.be enough.
    Idk if you should get i3 or i5 since you also want to game as well.
    I dont expect you to do a shit ton of work on it or play heavy games but if you do search for one with at least 8GB of RAM.
    But Id say for 'normal' use 4-6 will do
