Hello,
I am in search for a laptop that will be used for:
- web surf
- occasional movie watching (output to the tv via... anything)
- light gaming (old games I guess, since the budget is an issue)

Other requirements:
- good build quality, I hate bad plastics...
- has room to fit in my SSD https://www.pcgarage.ro/ssd/corsair/force-series-3-60gb...
- not a glossy screen

I will do the shopping from here:
http://www.pcgarage.ro/notebook-laptop/
My budget is not fixed, but I want to keep it as low as possible, so I`m looking for the best thing to fit my needs for the lowest possible price.

If you do not find a suitable configuration on that web site, please suggest what I should be looking for and what I should try to avoid.

Thank you for your time.

Do you plan on using the ssd with a harddrive? A 2.5" ssd should fit in any laptop but finding a laptop that has room for two drives is much less common.

I`d use it with the HDD if there is space, since 60 GB is not alot of space. I am not sure how to search for laptops who have space for SSD + HDD.
Thank you for the question.

I think you can take out the optical drive and then use that space for HDD, but you need to buy a special bay for the HDD.

I want to search for the best i3 maybe i5 possible config, that will last 3-4 years.

If it has optical drive, it probably has space for HDD. Just have to get the HDD bay for that. If you want to be sure, check with manufacturer.
