I officially need to buy a new laptop. I am caught between a rock and a hard place because, on one end of the spectrum, we live on a budget and I don't want to spend crazy dollars (ideally, not above $600), but on the other end, it would be nice to have a laptop carry certain minimum specs that allow for a quality gaming experience (for me, this includes online poker and very rarely other online games, also want frequent video streaming quality).
Can anyone either provide feedback on laptop purchases they have made, that you did or did not like? Or recommend certain brands or minimum specs that won't necessarily break the bank? Thanks for your time.
