Hi,
It seems that only the silliest of laptop setups make it to my country. All I find in local stores is overpriced stuff with powerful CPUs and ridiculus amounts of RAM paired with low-end graphics cards. I'm looking for a sensible setup to buy online, with a good i3/i5, some 8gb of RAM and a good midrange graphics card, for under $1000 if possible.
It will be used for some gaming, multimedia and photoshop/gimp.
Any models I should look for? I'm not particular to a specific brand (though all hp stuff I've ever owned proved to be reliable and long-lasting).
