Hello. I was hoping that the community could assist me in picking a laptop out of the chaotic mess that is the computer industry. I am going to be using it more school and some light rts gaming like Civilization and the Anno series. I am on a super budget so if gaming it out of the question then so be it. I am trying to get the most bang for my buck. I have done some research and there are three comparison links for you. Please note that the Bestbuy Asus X54c-BBK5 is being replaced by a similiar model; X54c-BBK19, which is completely the same besides $20 cheaper. Thank you.

Cost: $300-450
Brand: Asus, Acer, Lenovo
CPU: i3-i5... 2.2GHz+
Keyboard: I dont care
RAM: 4GB
Monitor: 720p?
Screen Size: 14-15.6"
Storage: 160-500GB
Graphics: Integrated ..... at this price point lol
WiFi: Yes
USB Ports: At least one.

I found this one on Newegg and I think it could be better than the Asus X54C-BBK19 model if not at least comparable.

Go for the ASUS. Great reliability and cheapest i3 on the market. Only 320 Gig HD, but should be adequate. Only 2 USB outlets (make sure you know which is which so you don't waste the 3.0 slot on a micro mouse). Another plus is a HDMI out, which seems to be a ASUS trademark. If you have any doubts about ASUS quality, check out who is making Google's Nexus 7.

Get the cheapest Asus one. It should serve your purposes for quite sometime (aside from possible gaming, that is).
