Can anyone suggest a laptop?


Jun 22, 2011
My laptop has completely died on me so I need a new one.. I am a student so I don't have a very big budget.. I'd REEAALLY like to try to keep it under $500 but if it's a bit more it's not the end of the world.. Now I mainly just use it for music, movies and MS office for school BUT I also have SC2 and would kind of like to be able to play that and LoL and maybe D3 when it comes out.. Now I know I'm not getting anything for gaming with that budget but if there is anything out there that could handle this on medium or low settings that would be great.. I could also get a lenovo t500(58u) for about $450 with a family discount.. I don't have all the specs but the basics are:
Intel Duo core T9400 2.53 Ghz
Xp professional edition
memory std/max: 2048Mb/4096Mb
160Gb hard drive
15" display

Not sure if I could get anything better for my money.. Any help is appreciated!!

Sorry forgot to mention I'm in Canada.. I don't think has this.. Unless ships to canada?
Thanks for the reply though


Hello kflip;

For the same price as that $450 lenovo t500 you can get a Dell Vostro 3550 15" Core i3 Sandy Bridge Laptop
Core i3-2310M 2.10 GHz CPU, 2GB RAM, 250GB 7200rpm HDD, DVD burner 15.6" 1366x768 LCD with Intel HD 3000 graphics.
Includes two USB 3.0 ports, HDMI, eSATA, 8-in-1 Card Reader, ExpressCard/34 slot, LED-backlit anti-glare matte LCD, WiFi, Bluetooth 2.1, HD Webcam, Windows 7 OS.

This will run SC2 on low settings. You'd need a dedicated graphics card to reach medium graphics.
