Solved Looking for a New Laptop for Uni Tags: Laptops Notebooks Ultrabooks Computers Last response: June 30, 2013 7:32 PM in Computer Brands Share Albert Szeliga June 23, 2013 11:48:36 AM Hey everyone, I need a new laptop/ultrabook for university as my old one is pretty garbage. Some of the things I need it to have: 1) Run applications like PhotoShop smoothly 2) Run games and HD video quite well 3) Have a decent battery Life (4 hours +) 4) Budget-wise, somewhere between $500-$700 So I have come up with some ideas. I would like minimum these specs: a) At least an i5 processor b) At least 500 GB of HDD c) At least a 1GB Graphics Card d) At least 6 GB of RAM e) At least a 15" display Any help would be great!

PS: Decrease advertised battery time by 25%, for Gaming de-rate MORE. With your specs, going to be hard pressed to find 4 hr battery on-time. Albert Szeliga June 23, 2013 4:49:35 PM Hmm these all seem like great laptops for the price! I suppose the battery life could go down to 3 hours, and the price could go up, but I will definitely look into MSI Laptops!
