  1. doubt you will get much help. thats not a lot of money too work with. double that then you might be in better shape. that would be my advice. wait and save up more money so you buy something that will actually be efficient at what you want it to do instead of being slow the whole time.
  2. I know it's not much it's all my parents are willing to spend so I was going to try and upgrade it with my own funds later on. I was just curious if there was one out there that anyone knew of.
  3. Best answer
    Save a little while longer. Graphic intensive laptops sweet spot is around $800. An I5 and discrete graphics cards are the starting values.
