I been looking for a new laptop lately and it's getting to the point I need one yesterday. I do tons of journalism so I am always tapping away on something but I want to be able to enjoy a few good PC Games. I mean a woman has to take a break sometime right? Here is my needs: >My price range is $700 and below though I feel better around $500 >An i3 Processor or better and decent graphics. >Battery Life at least four+ hours >A laptop and none of that silly notebook stuff. >Nervous with Apple Products, not a fan. Now I been looking at a store called MicroCenter located nearby in Ohio. These are the laptops I picked out so far. The Acer Aspire E-1 http://www.microcenter.com/product/428360/Aspire_E1-572-6468_156_Laptop_Computer_-_Clarinet_Black An Asus (Rather Fond of these) http://www.microcenter.com/product/...ter_-_Dark_Gray_with_Concentric_Circle_Finish The Dell Inspiron http://www.microcenter.com/product/427748/Inspiron_17R_173_Laptop_Computer_-_Moon_Silver?ob=1&rf= Last but not Least the Sturdy Lenovo G710 http://www.microcenter.com/product/428612/G710_173_Laptop_Computer_-_Black_Textured?ob=1&rf= I know there are so many opinions on computers, but my work has slowned down because I no longer have a computer. Work/time is money. Please people help me! Picking one from my list or showing me a whole different computer, it don't matter. If there is anything I could do to repay you for helping out consider it done.
