I need a sub-700 laptop, currently I have a Lenovo P580 with an I5-3210M with 6GB of ram. Not all that great, I would use it for browsing, listening to music, programming and compiling code, and casual gaming. I tend to have multiple programs running at the same time so ram is a must. I was looking at the Lenovo Z510 and the Hp InspironR15. Any recommendations on laptops within this price range? Or which one of these over the other?
I've heard Asus computers aren't bad for the money. But I looked though some HP laptops and found this: http/www.shopping.hp.com/en_US/home-office/-/products/Laptops/HP-Pavilion/E8C01UA?HP-Pavilion-17-e171nr-Notebook-PC-ENERGY-STAR-
Nowadays, computers are getting cheaper and the performance is getting better. If it is not completely urgent, you could maybe wait a few weeks or months after the prices decrease.
