My 17yr old daughter wants a gaming laptop for her birthday and the budget is $500. Willing to buy refurbished. I know some about computers but have never been a gamer of any type. Looking for suggestions. What are the video card minimum requirements I should be looking at so that she can play about any game she wants on lower settings. And is there any reason not to get Intel vs AMD? Looking for any advice. Specific laptop models or certain specs to look for. Whatever.
