What I want to be using it for:

Light gaming. (shogun 2/rome2)
Office Suite (I get that free from school)
Email
Watching anime


What I'm looking for in features:

Fast bootup time. (SSD would be lovely!)
Fast in general, if it isn't I can always go to linux however
Pretty lightweight
Not a gayass design, keep it slim

I went on here and it looks like a steal deal but the website might be untrusted/it's refurbished but it has an A1 grade.

For the price, you can't go wrong. This laptop will be great for movies and most other functions, and will actually play lower-spec games at respectable framerates due to the GeForce 820M graphics card. Due to the refurbished status of the laptop, you only get a 3-month warranty by default. I highly recommend paying the additional £29.95 to purchase the 9-month extended warranty.

That laptop would be fine for everything except Rome 2 and shogun 2. Both of those games especially Rome 2 are somewhat tough to run and I doubt a nvidia 820m will be enough to give a good experience in either of those games.
