Hello, I am currently using a very old laptop, and I want to be able to have a laptop for both business, and for personal gaming. I want to play the newest generation of games on at least high settings ( an example would be Bad Company 2). I don't want it to be flashy with tons of lights, in fact I want extra lights / colours to be minimal. Format below.
My budget ranges from $1000 - $1500 CDN, which must include taxes. I am considering all sizes, 15" and above, as it has to be large enough to read documents with ease, and play games at a decently high resolution (above 1440*900 would be suitable). This laptop will be replacing my current laptop, and I have no plans on buying a desktop. I need at least 4 hours of battery life, anything more would be splendid. As I said above, I would like to play upcoming DX 11 games on a setting of High. I want to be able to use any office programs without feeling cramped (higher resolutions / larger screens), and to watch HD videos with ease. As for HDD capacity, all I would require is a minimum of 250GB, although more would be better. I would rather buy from a company that ships from Canada, so I don't have to worry about the extra border fees. I want this laptop to last for about 3 years, maybe 4, before I plan on purchasing another (or upgrading, depending on the laptop). For an optical drive, all I really would want would be a DVD ROM/Writer. I don't really have a bias for brands, as long as they are reliable I guess. I currently reside in Toronto, ON, CA. I don't really have any other notes, just that it has to look professional, and not covered in contrasting colours and bright, obnoxious lights.
Thank you for your time, looking forward to any responses.
Thank you for the welcome. As for the laptop, that seems to be pretty spot on with the requirements, so thank you very much! I know ASUS is a respected brand, so I will most likely purchase the ASUS G51Jx. Thank you for your time.
