    Medium graphics in many games is probably too optimistic.

    I looked at both u suggested...Is this one a little bit better http://www.ebay.com/itm/251000537195?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1438.l2649#ht_1713wt_1139
    ...still hoping to find something more powerful though..
  7. That is better. It's the same AMD A6-3400M 1.4Ghz APU but it's got a better graphics card with that Radeon HD 6650M.

    It's not a 'new' item though. It's used, but refurbished.
  8. Manufacturer refurbished: An item that has been professionally restored to working order by a manufacturer or manufacturer-approved vendor.

    I can't tell from the listing what type of warranty it has.
  9. Found it ... Warranty: 90 Day
  10. hmm, currently bidding on this http://www.ebay.com/itm/150760395384?_trksid=p5197.c0.m619#ht_1537wt_1139 ...The seller doesn't look very legit tho, plus the model was discontinued so idk how he got it new...If it goes out of my price range ill get the refurb ASUS K53TA BBR6 probably, Unless i find something better

    I would definately get that, unfortunately ebay will only let you spend 500$ max if your ebay account isn't linked to a verified paypal
  12. Why dont you just verify PayPal *facepalm*

    Because im under 18 and my parents wont do it for me
  14. It doesn't seem to be available on ebay, but I bought an HP DV6 laptop with an AMD A8 that has held up for decent gaming. Got it at bestbuy for $430. Try to find something similar. For under $500 and gaming the AMD A-series is your best bet.
