Looking to buy new laptop for school

Hey all, im looking to buy a new laptop for school. I have $600 to spend. Hoping to buy an open-box laptop.

what i need:

Light weight/thin.
Main use: Writing papers, researching on internet.
Would like to be able to play games but its not a huge deal. I have a pretty solid Desktop.

any places you could suggest to look besides new egg? they have one but its out of stock.


any help would be great. thanks!

  1. you cant play most DX11 games with intel IGP so i chose AMD laptop or core i5 with dedicated graphics card
    here is A8-3520M for 480$ http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834246322
    core i5 with amd 7670 for 680$ http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834214870
  2. You should get comething portable if you'll mainly use it for studying...gaming won't be possible with intel's IGP, that's for sure.
