I'm going back to school and i'm looking for a laptop that can do the following
Gaming "I do have a gaming desktop btw"
Something I can do work on and has a good battery life, preferably a whole school hour.
Good storage and also has to be fast. I do a lot of programming so something with that in mind is nice.
I have roughly $800 in mind for the ideal laptop.
Also something above 4Gbs of ram is better too, thanks.
Get the Acer Aspire V3-551G-X419 Laptop. It should do the job well for you. It has the AMD A-Series Quad-Core A10-4600M 2.3 GHz which is a very good processor. It has two graphics card which is extremely great > these cards are the HD 7660G + 7670M. Also this laptop has 6 GB RAM which is good and can be upgraded to 8 GB. It has 750 GB 5400 rpm Hard Drive which will guarantee you enough space to store your school files and even games, videos, music etc.
You mentioned ''good battery life'', well the Acer Aspire V3-551G-X419 Laptop offers a batter life of over 5 hours which is excellent (you will find such battery life in just a few laptops).
Once again- I implore you to get that laptop. You won't regret.
