I am buying a used / new notebook as ive just started Uni this is to get me by until I can afford to buy a Gaming Desktop System early in the new year and then the notebook will still serve my needs as a portable option.
My dad is buying this as a gift so I only have the choice of these 2 below one is brand new never used the other has been used by my sister since new.
The system will be used for the below and nothing more:
Light Downloading Movies / Music
Light Office Use (Excel Word)
Web Browsing – a lot
If I could play a couple of games on MINIMAL settings (WoW Cata & Dawn of War 2) would be a bonus but not “Needed”
Here are the two options
