Hello! My fiancé and I looking to buy a new laptop for her around $300 - $400 maybe even a little cheaper. I've built a few PC's but have never ventured out of the desktop market so I honestly have no clue what specs are decent for a laptop. I was looking at the $200 chrome books te other day but their specs don't look too promising and doubt that the 2gb of ram would be helpful in Sony Vegas.

The laptop will mostly be used for video editing, surfing the Internet and playing video games with low requirements (we like playing minecraft and the left 4 dead series) so nothing too demanding. If anyone has any suggestions please let me know! Thanks in advance!

that one may be a bit better for gaming, my mobile benchmark list does not include the 4000 so I cannot say for certain, but either would deliver about the same performance, slightly better graphics in the one you suggested and a better cpu in the one I did.
