  1. I can find this one:

    still, even if the options from the laptops provided by your link are not available here, I`d like to know what should I look for, for example:
    - i3 second gen is enough for you
    - i3 first gen is enough for you
    - don`t go for a 5400 rpm HDD because <reason>

    stuff like that.

    and what does it mean, for the "Acer Aspire V3-571G" under "Why Not" it has:
    1). Screen
    2). The AMD solution has an advantage when using the integrated GPU.

    now, point 1 I understand the screen is meh, but point 2... ?
  2. I`ve read more about i3 380M vs i3 2310M and I guess if I cut the GW2 from the requirements, then the i3 380M is a good choice...
  3. if I cut the GW2 requirement - which I decided to do - then for the occasional watch of a movie any GPU will do, will it not ?
  4. what is minimum proc better than her current Intel T3400 that will have No Problem opening big word documents? Should I look for an Atom / i3-first gen? anything else?
