Any suggestions on an ideal laptop/notebook for college?


Feb 18, 2013
I'm planning to buy a laptop for college. I'm a frequent gamer (LoL, MC, TF2, other shooters). I'm new to buying laptops so I was wondering if anyone can offer me some guidelines.

I'm looking for one with
-a decent graphics card (don't know if Intel 4000 GPU is decent enough)
-Windows OS
-price range up to $800, but preferably around $600-700
-size doesn't really matter for me but as long as it's not huge that it becomes difficult to carry
-plan to have it for long-term (don't want it to work for 1-2 years and die on me)
-storage at least 500 GB or upgradable (no SSD or traditional hard drive preference)
-i5 processor or higher (or AMD equivalent)
-decent RAM
