Where can I get this laptop?

Hello, so.. christmas is comming and I wanna know where can I get a laptop around ($450-$500) (I want it for school, gaming, etc.)

With these specs: 3rd Gen Intel Core i5-3210m, with Graphics Card Nvidia GeForce GT 630M, 6gb-8gb ram, HDD doesn't matter, above 300GB, screen size 15.6" or 17.3" doesn't matter... a brand new computer with all those specs for 500 bucks, where can I get one like that or could you recommend me any better? or does a laptop with those specs and price doesn't exist?

    Unfortunately, no. Why? Because of the graphics card. Sorry man, I also hate it when you can't get something for a certain price range.

  3. Surprisingly there is one for exactly $500 on newegg but it's discontinued: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834215411
  4. Would be a bit hard for you to get such a laptop brand new for that price. You do have the option to check craigslist or the ebay classifieds if in the US. If in Canada try kijiji.ca

    Ahhh.. thanks for telling me.. I knew since the beginning that I wasn't gonna find a laptop with such specs for 500 bucks
    I was already convinced myself that I wasn't gonna find such laptop, because, I've been searching on Bestbuy.com or customizing laptops at dell.com or toshiba.com till I get those specs but the price rises to 700-800 bucks :/
    but finally I know the truth....

    But since christmas is comming, do you think by any chance that a laptop with those specs can drop to maybe 500-550 bucks because of christmas eve?
  6. Yeah sure it may drop, it's worth checking when the sales finally come

    Awesome :D
  9. If you can stretch to $550 then this meets your spec (it actually goes a little further)

  10. Also why that specific processor?

    Should post that link in his other thread where he asks for another laptop without any of the specific hardware requirements.

    Good day :)
  12. I think you can get one with a sandy bridge i5 and that graphics card.

    I find it fast enough so I dont have to spend on an i7 because I can't afford it, and the fits good for the laptops :)
