    not sure where to put this thread, but I was hoping to find some recommendations for a laptop new laptop purchase.

    Of course, if this is a problem, I'll never do this again.

    I need a new laptop for college. I have a $500 limit. I don't mind a laptop with windows 8, but I'd prefer 7 if at all possible.

    I know I want at least a 2.0 ghz quad core proc, 6 gigs of ram. And I now I don't want a chrome book, but besides that, I'm completely up in the air.

    you have a large choice and noone will be able to give you a specific model

    I would suugest you look for an i3 CPU
    or at least compare cpus using a benchmark site like
    gives the chance to compare CPUs
    then make sure it has USB3 on the device

    For windows 7 - you will be limited to the more expensive models, But Dell have these models available
    also I know in the UK Fujitsu and Toshiba also provide new W7 laptops

    Next decide on the screen size you want - then just have a look and find a few models - you can then post here and perhaps get views on the difference between the laptops you are thinking of
