I just wanted to ask this quickly as it isn't a huge concern for me, but what is the best laptop for under $500?
My current laptop was on sale for $80 (Black Friday) 4+ years ago, and it lags on almost everything. It can't even play Minecraft above 30 frames, so never mind streaming or playing counter strike or anything. At this point anything would be an upgrade.
My main purposes for a laptop would be light gaming (counter strike, town of salem, indie games, etc...), YouTube, programming, and taking notes or doing school work. I already built my own high end PC, and I am just looking for something that is more portable for when I can't be at home. Maybe I could even take advantage of Steam streaming to play high end games on a laptop but my current laptop can't even handle that.

From what I have looked for, these seem to be the options I have found:

I put it in a straw poll so that people could vote for the one they think is best, since if people give varying answers it doesn't help much :/

Thanks a bunch!!!
