I’ll get to the point. I want a LAPTOP that I can game on, listen to music on, and get into video calls with in for around $500. Something that I will be able to be listening to music (on YouTube) while browsing the internet, then later pull up a steam game and play that. Then in a little while I can go onto Google hangouts and get into a video call. Simple as that. Something with a good speed as well. My internet speed is great so I want something that will utilize that.

So, good speed, decent memory, and something that can handle CS:GO.

Literally anything will handle CS GO.

Just avoid Bay Trail CPUs like the plague and you'll be fine.

If you don't know what that means, just avoid all CPUs with the prefix "N"

For example, Pentium N3540 or Celeron N2820.

The CPUs you're looking for are anything with a "U" or "M" Suffix.

For example, Pentium 3560M or Core i3 6100U.

Of course, it's unlikely you'll find i3s sitting around the $500 range, but just heed the suffix and prefix advice above and you won't be royally fucked in the ass in single thread performance or performance in general.

>>51550715
I honestly have no idea what you just said. The suffix part makes some sense though. Do you have any specific reccomendations?
>>
>>51550603
$1.5k is not in the $500 rangel

$500, good luck.

>>51550744
Not in particular.

If you DO happen to find any laptops in that price range with a Core i3, GO FOR IT.

The Integrated GPU they have is much faster than the Pentiums or Celerons, about twice as fast actually.

What this means is games will play like a dream on the Core i3 in comparison.

What about something like this?

>>51550976
Not bad but see if you can find any with a Core i3 4XXX series rather than 3XXX because they have much better integrated graphics.
>>
>>51551111
So, let's say i buy this. How much different is the loading speed and jnternet loading speed then say a MBP?
>>
>>51551237
The MBP is faster, but not by leaps and bounds.
This is a great machine for it's price.
>>
>>51550601
i just got an x230 that can do that for 300

This one is really good for the money.
If you have American Express card, you can take extra $25 dollar off. Making it 380.
