I want something that offers the best possible value for around $500. I'm trying to steer clear of HP Laptops.
Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance.

I just bought that a few hours ago after researching for about the past month.
If you are purchasing a laptop, buy Sager, Lenovo, MSI, or Asus. Everything else is pretty much shit.

edit: Oh and if you're buying a ThinkPad, you'll get tired of it before it ever breaks. Trust me, i still have mine running perfectly for 5 years.

uhhh i just got it and ... its a bit bigger than i expected
it's not bad at all for $550 but don't plan on playing any games.

it can play league of legends on lowest settings with decent frames

otherwise its perfect for school besides the size. its pretty light. just kinda fat.
thinkpads are known for never breaking, so.

edit: oh my cousin owns a pretty old thinkpad and he told me one night he had a crazy fuckin dream and when he woke up he was so fuckin scared he threw his laptop across the room and it slammed into the wall and dropped hard as fuck on the floor. it still works.

lol @ the last part.
Anyway, I thought I'd go with this one, just under $500.

Both those laptops are basically the same thing.
Those just have a slower processor and slower hard drive than the one i linked.
IMO the thinkpad is worth the price

edit: the battery life on the correct power profile gets me about 6 hours straight.

Seriously, 6 hours? damn, that sounds good. If it was a bit smaller then it'd be perfection. But I guess that's a small price to pay for such good battery life and performance. I guess I'll go with that one then.

I've been looking around for smaller and lighter laptops and I found two pretty nice one.
The ThinkPad x120e which is on average like 450
or the HP DM1Z which is suppose to be HP's alternative to the Macbook Air and its like around 500. If they took off the HP logos i'd buy this in a heartbeat.

But idk. I'm gonna wait for a while and see if anything new comes out like the x120e with the new E-450 processor like the DM1Z. Nerd talk probably doesn't matter to you but whatever lol.
