hello everyone,

i am hoping someone here can help me with a getting a new laptop. i am looking for a basic mainstream laptop. looking to spend $300-$700CAN. I am looking more at getting an asus laptop this time around I had an MSI before that lasted me a long time.. preferably something with a core I3 CPU. I may have found one already but cannot find much info on it. wondering if someone can help me find more info i found on newegg..ca it is an asus core I3 but the info is pretty basic and cant find the specific model anywhere on the asus website.

any help will be appreciated

Why specifically Asus?

You can purchase a Lenovo G510 directly from Lenovo that is a bit better for $549. It comes with a current generation core i3-4000M (the site state "MQ" but that is wrong) which is clocked at 2.4GHz. The Intel HD 4600 is about 30% - 35% more powerful than the Intel HD 4000. But it only comes with 4GB of RAM. For $609 you can get the G510 with a Core i5-4200M (2.5GHz base speed / 3.1GHz max). It also comes with a total of 8GB of RAM. That makes the extra $60 CAD a very good bargain. I would think a stick of 4GB RAM in Canada costs about $40 - $50. That means the upgrade to the Core i5 is only costing you $10 - $20.
