Ok i bought a lenovo laptop a couple months ago at a pawn shop for $114 and i have been using it off and on,but now my sister is selling me her laptop for $200(100 now and 100 next week),and i am only buying it cause she really needs the money.

Now my laptop has a better cpu,but hers has better ram,hd,and better onboard video.

What am thinking of doing is keep one and sell the other.

I use my laptop for surfing the web,watching movies,listening to music(on my hd and on pandora)and i would also like to do some gaming(i know i would have to run most games on lowest settings,if the game will even run at all)i would also like to run some emulators on it.

And if this helps here is a link to my steam profile showing the game i have,
I know i won't be able a lot of the on either,but i would like to run some of them.

Here are links to both:

they're both worth about what you paid the pawn shop for the lenovo. I would sell both and hope to get a total of $300, then you can buy one that might be 50% better than what you have now.

Well i have a friend that would be willing to buy my sisters for what i paid,so i could sell that to him,then sell the other,or mabye try bartering it on craigslist for something better.

What do you think?

Also what is the cheapest laptop you would suggest for what i want to do?

Well if i just sell those 2 laptops i will Get $300-$350(can you suggest one for that price) Or i am already selling 2 older pc's to the same person that would buy the laptop for about $450 i could use that money along with the money with the money from the laptops,but i was considering buying a 120hz 3d screen with the $450.

What do you think i should do?

IF you think i should all that money for a laptop,please suggest one for $700-$800?

Also the friend won't be paying for it all at once,i am going to let him make payments on it,so it could be as much as 2-3 months before i can buy one.

EDIT:I would also like to know for now which would be better for me to use,until i get a better laptop.
