Looking to buy a laptop tomorrow and this one seems like a GREAT deal, it was actually a black friday ad that brought me to this, but its on sale now for the same price so I want to jump on it....thoughts?

I want something with good speed, mainly an internet type laptop, no music or pictures will be on it most likely, looking for something not loaded with crap that has great specs so it works well.....is this a good one?

Seems like its 100$ off the normal price. Its a pretty decent laptop and would do anything you need to do very well besides video games. You might also be able to get 15-25fps on some games with that video card if you ever need it too.

It's all in all a decent laptop as long as you don't mind a bottom of the barrel graphics card. Don't know if you'd want to play any games on it, but if you do don't expect to be playing anything remotely graphic intensive. The video card also cannot be upgraded in the laptop, so you'd be stuck with it.

Yea sorry, I am not a gamer on computers, so that is not an issue for me. I just want it to be speedy and smooth.

If you are looking for internet only, I would suggest looking into the Samsung Chrombook 550.

And if you aren't a huge multi-tasker, there are $200 and $250 options on the play store. I would stick with the 550 cuz I have tons of Tabs open at all times

Definitely a step up in video card, although you lost 2 gigs of ram. A fair trade I'd say as you have more use for a better video card than more than 6 gigs of ram. Not as nice of a processor, but it's pretty close.
