I want to buy my 13 year old daughter a laptop but I have no idea what to look for. All I know is that she wants it for playing games like the Sims 3, surfing the web, and iTunes. I do have a limited budget $500 and under. I realize that this won't buy us very much but I want to know the best options we have. Can anybody please help this clueless mom?
You only have to post once; someone will reply eventually.
Anyways, "Black Friday" is approaching, so I assume there are some decent deals out there. Check out this site: http://www.blackfridaylaptopdeals.net/ first. For example, Best Buy has a "Sony 15″ Dual-Core Laptop with 4GB RAM and 320GB HardDrive and new Windows 7 $399." That's plenty to play the Sims fairly smooth.
In technical speak, as long as the computer has a dual core CPU that isn't a Celeron or a Turion and has decent on board graphics (stay away from anything involving Intel on board graphics), your daughter should be good to go.
