    If you can only buy from amzon, then you choices are pretty much limited. But still few good deals out there.

    In terms of build quality and temperature, I would suggest sony or lenovo for this price range. Specifically you could get a core i3 cpu in a 15.4/ 14 inch laptop.

    A 15 inch Sony VAIO EH2 Series or a 14 inch Sony VAIO EG2 Series.

    The Lenovo G570 runs real cool. But the fan makes a bit noise because it either switches on or off. Its pretty much same for most laptops.

    If you can buy from other sources though, its a completely different ball game.
