Hello alex5152;

Where do Panamanians get their laptops from?

No games, but you want a 1gb video card? What's up with that requirement?

Well, the 1gb video card is not so important, i could well do with a 500mb.

1GB or 512MB doesn't matter. What do you need with any dedicated graphics card at all?

You must have SOME idea where Panamanians get their laptops?

Well, the number of people here that buy laptops online are scarce, since most people here just go to a store and buy a laptop they like. they don know and dont wish to know what are the technical specs, etc..and if it brakes, they buy anotherone. happy lives. but im one of the few that likes to know what i am buying, and i want to get my money's worth. so again, any suggestions would be appreciated. just tell me specific models that you think suit my requirements.
Thanks.
