  • Laptop for a mate

    He's looking to spend around 500, uses include Auto CAD for uni, general internet stuff and games such as Total War and Company of Heroes. So a decent CPU paired with a low/mid GPU would be fine, he's currently got a Turion Ultra and integrated graphics so thinking along the lines of an i5 and GT540 or something?

    He found an Asus A53Z-SX137V which is AMD A6-3420M, 8GB RAM, 500GB HD for 450.

    Anything better out there?

    Does he have anymore in the budget??

    You can get i7 based laptops for as low as 580 with 6gb ram, 500gb hdd and GT540m, well worth spending the extra for an i7, the 4 cores will be a massive improvement.

    Acer Aspire 5755G.

      There's a couple of fair spec'd laptops available with dedicated GPU's in the shop with a name similar to 'asteroid'

        I'd say 525 is his absolute max, doesn't want to spend much more than that.
