Need help buying a laptop and other stuff…?

by admin on October 20, 2010

Well, i’ve been thinking of buying a laptop for a really long time now just for my entertainment and I couldn’t decide on which laptop is good, I own a Vista PC at the moment, so that’s why I’m getting into buying a laptop.. (I also own another XP, but it’s at my dads workplace). It’ll be for gaming (60%) and for homework/chatting/surfing the internet (40%). I’ve decided on a laptob already which is: Acer Aspire 17.3" Laptop featuring Intel Core i5-430M (AS7741G)
Link For Specs:
If that isn’t a good laptop for gaming and the stuff I listed, then can you please suggest a good laptop which I could buy IN BEST BUY, CANADIAN TIRE, WALMART, ZELLERS, THE SOURCE, FUTURE SHOP, etc. (I’m in canada, so a place which is popular there).
If you are going to suggest a laptop, there are a few things I would want you to look into when suggesting it:
– Size = It has to be 17.3"+ (Since for the gaming, I won’t take it around, just around my house).
– Webcam = Yes
– Mic = Yes
– Brand = HP, Acer, Dell, Sony, anything that would be a good brand which has great laptops for a mid price, I mean don’t suggest a alienware, because i’m not spending 00+ on a laptop.
– Price = 0-0 <– Try it to be less then 900, because a 9.99 laptop would actually go into 00 or 0.
– GB = 4GB+

The Games I’ll be playing on my laptop would be, Soldier Front, Ava, Sudden Attack, Operation 7, and GunZ.

Now the other things I wanted to buy with the laptop would be…
– A case
– Headphones
– Earphones
– Mouse

Alright, so I will break my laptop if I don’t buy a case, and i’ll have to give my laptop to my dad sometimes if he needs to take it to his work place and work on it so i’ll need a case for that. I went to best buy and future shop, I couldn’t find a good case that was 17.3".. Again can you please find a case which is big (As you can see, i’ll be putting A LOT of things in). 🙂 Also, from the stores I listed.

I don’t call myself a hardcore gamer, but I will be playing those games a lot, i’m new to Ava, Sudden attack, and operation 7 but I know a lot about GunZ and Soldier Front so you need to hear footsteps in Soldier front and I need good headphones for that, i’m not asking for gaming headphones or headsets, I mean it’s your choice, just something that’ll help me hear better.

When i’m not playing games, or playing a game like GunZ, I often listen to music so could you suggest some earphones, I mean i’ve had a few earphones before and they we’re crappy and messed..

Alright, to play games I obviously need a mouse so can you please suggest a good mouse.. Here are the things it should have:
– Scroll
– It could or doesn’t have to have this, but a forward and back button. (Through internet pages).
– Good single
– Works on a lot of surfaces
– The USB (If uses) has to be REALLY SMALL.. (As I told you I break a lot of things, and if the USB sticks out too much, i’ll sureley snap it off by accident.
– Good feel the the hands
– Fast mouse click
– Right click and Left click
– Can be any brand 🙂

Alright, thanks just a few things to keep in mind:

Cases – Should be around –
Headphones – –
Earphones – –
Mouse – –

Also, please try to pick these things from the same store, you don’t have to but try to.

Thanks! 🙂
In the mouse section, I meant it has to have a good signal!
Thanks for suggesting laptops, but i’m looking for the other stuff too, and I asked for stores.. I cant order stuff online..

go to and find a dell studio or studio xps. xps is good too but very costly. they come in 14 15 or 17 inch versions. they are refurbished but I will never buy anywhere else. they are identical to a new computer and even have the same warranty. I have a small business repairing computers, so I have had a fair share of comptuer exposure. Also i just bought a dell studio 15 from there and have nothing but praise for it.
