hey guys, was wondering if anyone could suggest a laptop for uni, looking to spend up to $400, needs to have wifi basically :P help would be much appreciated, already had a look at msy and saw the Asus X43U-VX100, MSI x350-476AU and the lenova G575-43834QM, but not sure yet
$400 is entry level, just go into somewhere like jb hifi and ask for their best price on the 2 or 3 lappies they have in that price range
you'll probably get a free bag or something
at that end of the market you're best off buying the one you like best, they pretty much all have the same 2gb ram and i3/i5 chipset
Cheers teq, really appreciate the help, have no clue when it comes to laptops O.o
Can't really go wrong for $400 they're all good at that price range
To be honest, get the Samsung Galaxy 10.1" tablet. It's $473 and works just as good as a laptop for that price.
Yeah, frankly what you get for $400 these days is a monster. I'd try to look for something that keeps the weight down, as 15" things tend to have chunky batteries and aren't exactly light.
Then again, I've got used to carrying around an Ultrabook that's almost lighter than an iPad.
it would be a clear cut choice for me, but when i had a look on the MSY website i saw they were selling a older laptop, the MSI x350for $400 that used to retail for around $1k 2 years ago. or going for something newer such as the Asus x54c, which is also retailing on the MSY website at $400.. :/ basically just asking would it be better to go for the older model or a newer model

I recently got a Macbook Pro 15" - first mac.. still transitioning to osx but it is a pretty sweet laptop.
Not to hijack, but I might be in the market for a new gaming PC soon.
I haven't done any IT hardware work for 2-3 years so am well out of touch, don't really want to have to do anything tbh, just want a sweet gaming rig that'll work mostly out of the box. Are alienware rigs any good?
hey viper, nice one with the mac, iv heard they are pretty sweet,
you probably already know but it really is better to build your own rig :p just do a little bit of research and you will end up saving money in the long run instead of paying for the brand.
also on alienware, always hear that they are way over priced for what you get :/
