    So my 5 year old lap top I used for school is broke. The screen is cracked. Im not sad tbh because its a shitty Gateway that I got for 299, its done its job. So Im looking for something new. Im not looking for anything amazing 400 - 600 price range. Prefer anything that can be good for multi use, such as studies and be ok at gaming (not a big requirement for gaming but it would be a nice bonus). Im not looking for anything specific on specs.

    Only big requirement is its not windows 8.
    Prefer to avoid Dell products unless its a good known laptop. Iv had very bad experiences with many Dell products.

    Seems silly to post this sand then an hour later cut it, but I found something I was looking for. Ignore this.

    Steam:

    Have you tried windows 8.1? I have an HP pavillion with windows 8.1, and okay I would prefer windows 7, but it doesn't seem to crash as much as the original windows 8 and runs TF2 with high settings for models/textures/shaders and etc. very well. 8.1 also starts me at the desktop, instead of starting at that stupid tile screen.

    TBH looking around I found some really good tablets on sale. Ill post them later if anyones interested. The tablet can do way better stuff then my gay way does from footage iv seen of it. And I really was looking for something smaller then a laptop. Kinda stuck with it having a form of Windows 8 on it but I guess I can get over that.

    If i can get the tablet I want for $80 and it can run games 10x better then my 300 pile of crap laptop. Then I think im set. (Note I don't use a laptop as my main pc so don't yell at me.)
