While the rest can be easily handled by your rule of the mill Dell Inspiron, gaming can push you to the brink.

I need some advice buying a laptop I don't mind if it's refurbished. I've been looking on Newegg, I don't know much about technical stuff at all, I would like to keep it under 800 if possible. all I really want is to go on the Internet, surf the Web, maybe play a couple of games here and there my grandkids play mostly, and have a webcam and a 17 inch screen and be fairly quick and be able to hook up to a printer any thoughts or recommendations, I don't really want to have to mess with bios or go into the operating system to mess around because I really don't have skills to do it, guess I want it ready to use, but not to expensive
