Ok Hey guys! im new here so just learning the ropes. My friend told me to sign up here and that this place rocks so here I am.

Lets get started. I just want a Laptop with good speakers, I can play Movies on it (dvd), Can play League of Legends on it and i can do college work on it.

I bought this laptop Toshiba Black 15.6" Satellite C55D-A5333 Laptop PC
Specs are

Software:

The laptop is ok and i only paid $400 for it but the main problem is the keyboard, that when you type all the key get pushed down and that the Charger it says will expose you to lead so I was just kind of worried about this laptop.


Can you guys post links to laptops that are like what im looking for or that will fit what I need it to do. I dont want to spend more the $800 not including tax.

I have tried and tried to look online and best buy is no help. also im not all to good with computer specs but I get the basics.

If you guys could please help that would be awesome!

Thank you!

Well, i actually can't tell you, i've never shopped newegg as I live in australia where they don't ship. However, they tend to give great systems for great prices.

Of course, if there's anything you should be worrying about, it's the general build of the system. I think it's aluminium, but you should hit up some reviews just to be sure.

THIS IS WHAT I GOT AND I LOVE IT! it runs League just fine at 60fps at med settings, everything is fast and its awesome because screw windows 8

Only thing that bugs out is the side scroll on the touch pad but I just disabled it.
