I am looking for a laptop that is suitable for enjoying multimedia and play current games at at least medium settings. From my own search the best deal for the price that I have found is the Dell Inspiron 15 7000.
Hopefully someone can confirm that this is the best option for me or find a better alternative.
Thanks in advance.
