Looking for a new Laptop
I am currently using a Dell Inspiron 15 M5030, and am looking for an upgrade. Primarily in the graphics department. My current budget is $500. Used is OK.
I did quite a bit of research, and pretty much narrowed it down to the HP Envy dv6-7229WM.
What do you guys think? My Dell has an AMD Athlon II with AMD Radeon graphics, which has both blown me away and greatly disappointed me. The only games I play so far are a little bit of Minecraft and Cube 2 Sauerbraten, mostly because of my limitations. It handled Cube amazingly well with the graphics turned all the way up, but lagged often with Minecraft. Some friends say that the model with the Intel Core i5 and NVidia card is much better, but I'm not sure it's worth the extra $100.
Thanks in advance.

It looks decent and that's not a bad price at all. I'd go with the quad core processor and better video card if I were you. I know it's an extra 100 dollars but in my opinion it's worth it. You might also check out bestbuy a lot of times they have some really good deals on refurb laptops or go to HP or Dells website I also believe they have a refurb section where you can find some good deals. Good Luck!
