  1. Its hard to give you a specific laptop. All I can say it try online websites. I bought mind from And they have a large selection and give you good details. If you want to play games on a laptop, do not expect to get good performance while using a battery. And you probably want duel core (do not think you get get a quad core laptop for 600 bucks), any ATI 4500+ should be able to run games.

    I would say no to that laptop you were considering. Reasons: because it is a i2 CPU, and it is refurbished. With 600 bucks you can probably buy a better new laptop, or even a better refurbished laptop.
  2. Well you could always spend 700$ and get the free xbox 360 from microsoft too which is kinda cool.
  3. I wanted too but there are not good laptops for 700$.
  4. Here are two I'm looking at...

    Acer Aspire AS5742G-6600 ($499)
    AMD Quad Core N970, 4 gb ram, 640 gb hd, ATI 4250 integrated graphics, 15.6" screen

    Acer AS7741G-6426 ($690)
    Intel I5 480M, 4 gb ram, 640 gb hd, ATI 6550M (dedicated graphics, 1 gb), 17" screen

    Good luck.
  5. The $690 one is obviously better
