Interested in getting new laptop

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I'm looking to get a new laptop for ~$700 or less, which obviously limits things but I want to try to find the best laptop for the price.

 

I'm mainly planning to use this for some light gaming, as well as programming on the go, in addition to the usual web browsing, word processing, etc.

 

My must haves are:

  • 8gb RAM (16gb would be very nice if possible, if not upgradeability would be good)
  • At least 1080p display (touchscreen would be nice, don't care too much about colors, but I definitely don't want a TN panel as viewing angles are important)
  • SSD or SSD+HDD for storage (at least 256gb individually or combined)
  • Definitely would rather not have integrated graphics
  • 15 inch or less display 
  • Less than 5lb

Currently I was actually looking at this laptop as it seemed like a good deal, but that was only after some super basic research and I'm open to any other suggestions.

Where are you from? What games do you play? Any preference on battery life?

I'm from the US. As far as games go, I play mostly Fortnite, Overwatch, Apex, and a few others. As far as battery life goes, it isn't too important as long as it can last ~3 or more hours under a light-medium load.

Ok so this seems like an amazing deal and I might get it. Any thoughts? https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/p/lenovo-legion-y7000-81ld0009us-gaming-pc/8x0m9f3v7h38/3nmh?activetab=pivot%3aoverviewtab

 

Definitely weighs more than I want and is also quite a bit thicker than I want too, but it has very good specs for the price

You're the second person to find that deal this week. The other found the same model on slickdeals.com

 

It's a good model and a great deal for the money.

For $700 you don't have much options for a good gaming laptop. The Y7000 above is a good deal
