Hey, i'm trying to buy a new laptop for playing games like starcraft 2, editing photos with gimp/photoshop, and doing school work. I have my eye on three different ones and can't decide which one to get. My price limit is 700$ but i'm willing to go over slightly. Here are the three i've been looking at:
1. A customized HP Pavilion dv6zqe series: 675$
Color dark umber edit
Operating system Genuine Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit edit
I wouldn't consider buying a used (refurbished) laptop at this price. Also you want a 540M for gaming. Then you want to have the quality so it lasts. For all these things I don't think $65 is too much.
ASUS comes with a one year replacement plan no questions asked even if it is entirely your fault. http://completewarranty.asus.com/Content/US/ADP/ADP.asp...
ASUS laptops carry other warranties making the price premium worth it if anything goes wrong (even if for most people nothing does).
