I have been looking for a decent laptop in the $300-$450 range that I could use during school to take notes ect.
I will also be using it for a large amount of image editing work with CS6 and a little bit of gaming in WoW and Minecraft. I'm fine with medium to low graphics, but the intel integrated graphics won't cut it....
My main issue here is that I need:
4-8gb of RAM
a Quad core AMD A6 APU or the intel equivalent with dedicated graphics (which will most likely be out of my price range)
and high battery life; as in 5 or more hours of moderate to light use (Im ok with an aftermarket battery)
preferably a SD card reader
14"-16" inch screen (768x1366 or higher)
the hard drive does not have to be nice since I will be upgrading it to a SSD anyway
I would prefer black, grey or green but I might be able to put aside those preferences depending upon the hardware..
Any help finding a computer like this if it exists is greatly appreciated!
