Thanks for your time helping me!! :)
I like the dell E6400, theirs a billion of em out there... I can buy one just for parts for 50$ :ange: there are lots of videos on part replacements (like keyboards... CPU cooling fan..) I wouldn't mind replacing parts, i will be EXPECTING parts to break on a used or refurbished computer. The problem is that the 2 core 2.6ghz processer which im guessing has some crummy integrated GPU is just not enough power. I will be playing, minecraft, some league of legends, and i will be doing some video editing... I currently have a Toshiba satellite with i3 3120M 4g RAM 500gb HDD Integrated HD 4000 graphics

On a used or refurb pc I want to buy I dont give a crap about, ram, or hdd... I can easily replace those.... I care about CPU and GPU, I wont mind integreated graphics... I would just like the laptops CPU and GPU (or integrated graphics) to be the same or more power than my i3 3120m with Integrated HD 4000 graphics... Is there a dell business laptop that you can pick up used or refurb for 400$ that has a similar or mroe powerful CPU, GPU than my current laptop?

THANK YOU!!!!

Not sure why you are asking here, why not just do a search on eBay for a Dell Core i5 laptop? You seem to know exactly what you want, should be easy to find once you get past that. Lenovo T420 should also match what you want pretty well, so will the workstation version the W510 or 520 and those will be faster, especially for games.
