My 6 year old laptop finally gave out on me. I'm a student so I need a replacement as soon as possible, hence the small budget.

I would like something that I can run some games on. Nothing intensive; mostly source games, indie games, maybe some older AAA titles. I also do some photo editing so being able to run photoshop and the like would be really great.

Things that might help stay under budget are the fact that I don't need

  • a screen bigger than the standard 15.6"
    a touchscreen
    a backlit keyboard (nice but not necessary)
    anything more than 1366x768 resolution (again, nice but not necessary)
    a long battery life (I don't really move my computer much)
What would be a good fit? I'm also willing to take a chance on a refurb!
