I'm searching for a good i5 processor laptop, with at least 4GB of RAM...500GB+ of hard disk space, with a good display, low heating, with a good wifi receptor and with a good enough graphic card to play online games such as League of legends without any lag. Can you guys suggest me some? Well in short a laptop with a good performance ^^"

Thanks for the reply phillpower2, I think I saw the MSI one a lot higher than 899 USD, I think it was around Rs 40 000 ~ Rs 50 000.

You are welcome Shiw Liang

The Dell Inspiron 15R has a good spec for the price + it has a 5 year warranty, I couldn`t find anything better around your budget.

Yes I understand. Hm...yes Dell's has a really long warranty time :)

But one thing is sure, the graphic performance is going to be better than my old pc Acer E-270 :P

Something caught my eye and so I have done some research to check it out, the Dell specs shown list the CPU as an Intel Core i5-3217U, this is incorrect as that processor model number is for an i3, here is an example of the same notebook here in the UK, I would contact the merchant there and ask them for clarification on the CPU that is fitted before making a purchase.

Oh...that's weird, I think there are 2 Dell laptop with the same designs it's just that one model has an i3 processor and the other model an i5 processor.

Indeed i5 is a lot better but is there a big difference in i5 and i7 o.O? Or is it just a slight difference?

i7 CPUs are predominantly used by users that require the HyperThreading technology that i7 CPUs are capable of, this includes games programmers, professional video renderers, CAD specialists and 3D modelers, there is no harm in having an i7 CPU though if you can get one for a good price as in the same price that the appropriate i5 CPU would cost you ;)

Hm...so i7 is even better at multi-tasking and at graphic processing? Interesting, maybe if I can find one at a good price, I can add some money and buy it :)
But before buying, I'll be asking what you think about it ^^

Thank you ^^

Hm...I'm planning to go to China later on, do you think it is more worth for me to buy in Hong Kong or China? Will I be able to get a better laptop with the same amount of money?

I'm planning to go to a university there, so I thought maybe I can go there earlier and get a laptop there :)

Ohh so no big difference in gaming then :), if that's so then, it's not worth to get an i7 but what about the battery? comparing i5 and i7. Some friends of mine where saying that i5 has a longer battery life compared to i7
