    Ok so my parents agreed to get me a laptop for my senior year of HS but it has to be under 300$. The desktop we have at home is really old ( still runs windows 7) and I can barely game on it, it's a nightmare. So I'm looking for a gaming laptop, not high end (obviously). Also since I will be carrying it to HS, I don't want it to be too heavy so like less than 3-4 pounds. It doesn't need to be high end. Don't want to play at ultra settings. But I want to be able to play something like Battlefield 1 or GTAV at medium -high settings 30+ fps. Also I don't want the laptop to have LED red flashing lights or anything, I don't want my parents to know it's a gaming laptop. Help is appreciated thanks!

American Megatrends BIOS v205. If I need to upgrade the BIOS to do this, I may need a little help - or at least a link to how to do this. OK, I have flashed BIOSes in the past, but that was in the days of floppy disks!!! Thanks!

  • Do I have to pay for this McAfee?

    It came with my computer and now it says I only have 5 days left before I have to pay for it. It says it's blocked 14,000 "bad connections". What are those? What will happen to my computer if I just let it expire?

  • For $300, which is better? Chromebook or Windows Laptop? and why?

    Best answer: The Chromebook is built for browsing. It's got a light processor, and a fast SSD, and an OS that is light and memory efficient, based on Linux.

    Best answer: The Chromebook is built for browsing.
    It's got a light processor, and a fast SSD, and an OS that is light and memory efficient, based on Linux.
    The thing is, they aren't very useful for a lot more than that. You've got to jump through hoops to run any other programs on them and they usually don't have the hard drive space to store much more than the programs they came with.

    As for the Windows laptop, it'll probably be slower than the Chromebook, but you'll be able to install Windows programs and such.

    The way to get a laptop to last a long time is first, don't install the junk and malware that old laptops are always buried with. Second, get it an SSD. A fast SSD drive is a great way to make an old laptop usable for much longer because it won't take as long to load programs you need.

I got 1 year tech support for $130, I DIDN'T get the accident support, I did get confused on that part. $20 webroot internet security sales guy said it was required? I was eyeing the Acer gaming laptop with 1tb hd and don't recall the other specs but that was $619 with other fees included of course. I use my laptop for school, movie watching, photos maybe Facebook games. I just bought it so haven't played with it much but can't say I love it yet. Sales guy at best store was nice but of course trying to make a sale. Sorry for the long question. I'm just not feeling confident with my purchase.
