That’s a pretty small price point, but I found this laptop if you can scrape up another 50 bucks or so, to get a good legit general gaming pc I think this might be your best option based on your budget.

You should look for a discount on an Asus Tuf or HP Pavilion Gaming laptop... Theyre just €60-€100 above your budget.
Both have different models but have 8GB RAM and an i5 processor and a decent GPU as well.
This is a good one too, and exactly fits your budget: Acer Nitro 5

I just noticed it dropped below 700, which is not a bad price to get it, but if you want other options there is this acer nitro which is also can be found under 600 if you can wait for it.

Why should I buy a Mac?
Hey, I’m going off to college in about 3 weeks and my parents are buying me a laptop of my choice in the price range of 700-1000$. I already have a gaming PC, but my first thought was to pick out a gaming/regular use hybrid laptop. Was looking at something like this or this one.
I would only be playing games on it every once in a while, but I was thinking that if the hardware (specifically CPU) is good enough to play AAA games than it’s definitely super fast and reliable when it comes to school work (google docs, microsoft programs, surfing web, creating projects, etc.) Is there any reason why I should buy the Macbook Air instead? I know that it’s lighter, but that doesn’t really appeal to me too much. I don’t know much about laptops and have never actually had one, so it would be great if I could get some anecdotal evidence from y’all because I don’t see what the apple hype is all about. Thanks in advance.

Note: Not to be confused with the model on Amazon. This version of the Nitro 5 has the updated cooling solution, the same one being used for the Ryzen 4000 version, which is a lot better.

No beep sound. The only time it beeped is when I plugged it in, then beeped when I unplugged it but only when the screen was off, it doesnt do that right now, the laptop is on and no black screen but itll probably shut off again at some point.

The Acer nitro 5 2019 is amazing laptop for gaming. Especially for the games he is playing.
I have this laptop myself, and it's been absolutely fantastic! It's great for the price and modern enough to not have to upgrade for a while.

How does this compare to the Acer Nitro 5? Specifically the AN515-54-5812, which I see on sale for $600 occasionally:
The touch screen and 360 degree hinge are not significant for me.

My sister got this one She really likes it and it works great for both sims 3 & sims 4. And is budget friendly! Just make sure you get the one with the i5 processor not the ryzen. Ryzen will still work but i5 is better

you could also check the amazon.com for the import fees. here for a 600 dollars laptop combined with shipping and custom fees it is 328 dollars that's more than 50% of selling price. https://www.amazon.com/Acer-i5-9300H-MaxxAudio-Keyboard-AN515-54-5812/dp/B086KJBKDW/ref=sr_1_2?crid=1KAJG2MYJPSYS&dchild=1&keywords=acer+nitro+5+2020&qid=1594204153&sprefix=acer+nitro+5+2%2Caps%2C750&sr=8-2

If you wanna drop $700 I have a solution. The Acer Nitro 5 just came out in May and by all accounts and my anecdotal experience it absolutely slays. Easily the best bang for your buck for a gaming laptop.
1 points • Jauwer
For under $500 you will be struggling to find something that will hit all those markers, if your budget is set in stone then I would suggest buying second hand, Facebook market place or your region’s buying and selling platform might be a good idea, haggling for price is always an option there so you might find a pretty good deal.
Otherwise if you want new and it to have a good graphics then I’d consider stretching your budget a little you can get something like this that might be available elsewhere for a similar price.

This is about as cheap as your gonna get while getting actually good performance. Do you want good performance or it can run at meh frames?
This is strictly worse but has been discounted to $500 multiple times

So there is an almost identical Nitro 5 on Amazon with the only difference being the i5-9300h vs i5-10300h: https://www.amazon.com/Acer-i5-9300H-MaxxAudio-Keyboard-AN515-54-5812/dp/B086KJBKDW
So taking into account amazon credit card bonus, it would be \~$30 cheaper for the 9th-gen i5-9300h from Amazon. Would I regret not spending the extra $30 for the 10th-gen? Rather use that for a RAM upgrade.

Any reason why you are looking at a portable desktop and not a laptop? They should perform comparatively at this price range. Would recommend getting an aftermarket windows key or getting it online for free if you are a student.
Here's a list, ignore the warning. Pretend this is the correct case too, haha. https://pcpartpicker.com/list/vb8NMc

laptops r more expensive than desktops. and u didnt mention a budget. also check out guild wars 2 its like wow, its what me and my buddy are playing right now.
heres two. i would recommend the second one. just a little bit more money.
1 points • uvaxd
Yeah... the best gaming experience you'll get for $500 will probably be the acer nitro. On the other hand, a much better laptop for general college purposes would be this Lenovo flex. No dedicated graphics, but the 4500U benches similarly to the i7 9750h, and comes with half decent to terrible integrated graphics. Neither of these are perfect for your needs, but they are solid laptops for the 500-600 dollar price range

This is as good as it gets for the price, and the specs are probably the best of mid-tier. If you want the cheapest one that gets the job done:
2 points • Key-Suggestion-9004
How are these options?
Total budget (in local currency) and country of purchase. Please do not use USD unless purchasing in the US:
Hoping for something in the range of 500-800 USD. I could go up to 1000, but would rather not.
Are you open to refurbs/used?
How would you prioritize form factor (ultrabook, 2-in-1, etc.), build quality, performance, and battery life?
Performance and battery life are most important.
How important is weight and thinness to you?
Not super important.
Do you have a preferred screen size? If indifferent, put N/A.
Are you doing any CAD/video editing/photo editing/gaming? List which programs/games you desire to run.
I would like to do some gaming.
If you're gaming, do you have certain games you want to play? At what settings and FPS do you want?
Probably the most demanding games I have are Starcraft 2, Overwatch, and the Bioshock trilogy. It would be nice to be able to go a bit beyond that for future proofing, like maybe the Halo games. I don't know about the FPS I need, but something that is playable.
Any specific requirements such as good keyboard, reliable build quality, touch-screen, finger-print reader, optical drive or good input devices (keyboard/touchpad)?
The main thing here is a decent build quality, just so it doesn't fall apart.
Leave any finishing thoughts here that you may feel are necessary and beneficial to the discussion.
I found these that seem pretty good, but I'm not sure how to compare them. Any thoughts on them, whether they are good deals, and how they compare to others would be appreciated. I'm also wondering if I should wait a week or two for Black Friday or Cyber Monday.

I was looking at the Acer Nitro 5, but was wondering if there's a anything else I should keep an eye out for? Is this going to be able to handle everything I want or should I keep saving up to extend my budget?
Is the EVOO LP4 overkill? My partner was able to get a good deal on one a few months ago, should I hold out and see if I can snag one on sale?

Hi!! The Acer Nitro 5 with GTX 1650 is perfect for you. Even the ASUS TUF FX505DT and MSI GF65 9SD is good, but the Nitro is better. There is a laptop here for the Nitro which fits into that price https://www.amazon.com/i5-9300H-GeForce-MaxxAudio-retroiluminado-AN515-54-5812/dp/B086KJBKDW/ref=sr_1_3?dchild=1&keywords=acer+nitro+5&qid=1592529942&s=electronics&sr=1-3

Let me guess - it's used/refurbished? What the hell is wrong with the used laptop market, how does anyone think prices like that make sense in any way? You can get new/better stuff for less money. Like for less than $700 here's a new laptop that's as good/better in basically every way:

You won't be able to run at like max settings but probably around \~5-7 level in the graphics settings.
Or like others have said look into the cloud based options like Shadowtech
