    I found a year old thinkpad with 8 GB RAM and other nice specs for $320 and in perfect condition allegedly, but someone else snagged it before I could.

    I know alienwares are good.. I found a m14x for $700. Is that good?

    But looking at something and cheaper, maybe $500? (used or new) what would be good? Looking for lots of RAM and good processor/ video card. Something I could game on. Also something with a webcam and not design-flawed. (i.e, the fan built near the bottom so it over-heats unless it's raised up) Also something with long battery life would be ideal.

    Thanks you for your advice.

    Good video will cost more than $500. All laptops come with webcams. Almost all have fans on the bottom. Where else would they put them? Some higher priced more portable laptops have side vents because they're thinner.
