Hey THW, just in need of some suggestions for my next laptop. I am not a gamer. I am just looking for a laptop that has a nice big HDD and I can download and play movies and music. I would also like if it was pretty quiet and not so hot. I am not looking to spend $800, but I do have it if I need it. Also I would really like if the laptop was flashy in a white or red color, idk something like that. I am looking to buy pre owned/used/refurbished and I want to pay around $400 maybe more if someone can justify it.

*Also, I have been searching the web and I have done research and laptops from hp/sony are interesting me, but they are not what I require

then you can go with the HP dv6z-7200 - I think it will be perfect for you (close enough, I mean)

1. A8-4500M as processor
2. Radeon 7670M as graphics processor (or you can upgrade to the A10-4600M cpu instead)
3. 1080p screen (that's the second option)

then use coupon code 100PC (100$ off)

then you'll get the very good HP 1080p screen - excellent for movies and also everyday use, you get good enough gaming performance and overall performance and enough memory.

for 700$, that's the best with 1080p screen if you ask me.

the extra price is for the 1080p screen. Also, it won't have problems with 1080p movies and many flash tabs open and so on

anyway, if you look for a basic laptop as the one you've linked to, you can just go with the Asus K55N from bestbuy.

I'm using it now, and I actually am really enjoying it. When I put my ssd it will be much better, tho. I am unsure if I am going to keep it though because I will probably end up listing it back on amazon and try to make a little profit. But it is definitely a good laptop. Processor is a nice I5, and the overall look is really good. Thanks for all your help, I really appreciate it and if you did not know about microcenter before, check them out!
