Hey toms hardware people,

I have divorced parents and i am not out of the house yet...I keep my gaming pc at my dads house because his house has fast internet and that cool stuff, but since i have to go back and fourth i cant really bring my desktop due to the size. What kind of laptop/intel nuc/or anything would you recommend for playing games such as counter strike go and java script coding?
And i dont mind playing low settings at 4:3 resolutions because its just the way i play, but hit me with your best shot. And i dont really want to spend more than 400 dollars prefer like 350 range but thanks.

Take a look at this Acer Aspire laptop:
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01K1IO3QW/?tag=lapninj-20

It has a 15.6" 2K screen and runs on a dual-core Kaby Lake i3 CPU. 4GBs of RAM is a weak point but this goes for all devices in this price range. The Intel HD 620 IGP should have no problem running CS:GO, but don't try anything heavier than that. The 15.6" screen affords useful space for general surfing and productivity with Windows 10, but it does mean it's a bit heavy, at 5.27lbs. The HDD is mechanical but at least you get tons of storage. Battery life is listed at 12 hours. Even if this may be somewhat optimistic, it should get you through most of the day. This Acer currently retails for $330 on Amazon.

Cheers,
GreyCatz.
