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.
