Hey fellas and gals. I'm in the market for a new laptop.
Not for gaming use but i do play game but it won't be my main purpose.
Looking into the 15.6 inch screen. Nothing to expensive but nothing to
cheap either. I want to say some where in the area of $500 (cheaper if
there is a good deal ).
The reason why i don't want to spend a whole lot is because i plan on building a pc sometime in the next few months when the newer chips arrive.
I've never owned a laptop before so this will be my first. But if there are good deals out i want to snatch one up.
"Hi TVFREAKAZOID, lets see, 15.6 ,under $500, occasional gaming and a great brand. Hothardware from Monday to Friday has, HH HOT deals of the DAY, and I seen them post are a lot of laptops under $500 from trusted brands. Heres a recent one.:

Hey TVFREAKAZOID, thanks for posting... If you want my opinion, you should go with the Levono as so.
Of course, we here are knowledgeable of hardware; except for the poster above. I've used a Levono laptop (ThinkPad T42P) and they are pretty good machines; the support behind them is good and they seem to last for a long time.
Of course, Google can be your friend in this case but it's nice that you decided to ask us, the people with technical knowledge built in.
