Hi everybody!

I'm looking for a good pc for all sorts of entertainment and media. Trying to get the best bang for my buck. I saw a few similar posts like this, but they didn't have the same needs as me. The laptop can be a normal size one, since choosing an ultrabook will take off alot of performance. I've seen some good Lenovos close to the 800 dollar mark.

Uses for this laptop: Watching movies, torrenting and having a laptop for decent gaming if possible.

I think keeping it as up to date as possible will be a plus, so it doesn't get obsolete very soon.

Hope to hear your advice and any other information you may need, don't hesitate to ask!

Thanks in advanced! :D:bounce:
