Help me find a laptop under 800$ (Incl. of taxes) that meets my requirements?
I need a laptop for my studies at USC, California for MS Computer Science Course. Heard the tax on electronics goods is quite high in California. My budget is 800 $ inclusive of taxes. I guess that’s 700–730 $ without taxes, not sure of that.
My requirements are:
Intel Core i processor (i3 or i5)
4GB DDR3 RAM
320/500 GB Hard Disk
Nvidia or ATI graphics (512 or 1 GB)
Battery life of atleast 2.5 hours
14” or 15.6” HD Display
Good build quality (Shouldn’t feel cheap/plasticky)
The looks, weight of the notebook are not that important to me but the build quality must be good.
This question is in the General Section. Responses must be helpful and on-topic.
