Question

Which laptop is better for me?

by Matrixerx / June 21, 2013 11:54 PM PDT

Hi everyone. So I'm looking to get a new hp laptop and I've decided to go with the envy series. I have around $700 to spend (max) and I was able to build to similar envy's for that price after coupons. Could someone give me some guidance on which would be better? I will mainly use the laptop for school work and then gaming during the summer. Games include left for dead, planet side 2, second life, assassins creed 2 and Garry's mod. Please let me know what you think or if I could get a better bang for my buck in another laptop. (No dells please)
