Price was for 600 cdn. When looking around, i dont see anything besides entry-level products for 400+cdn. Was hoping to not get entry level thats why i was going with used.

How was that dell lattitude though? solid laptop? the core i7 should be enough for enough for most things? thanks.

600 CDN is too high for used.

Look at the y40 I listed and it has a GPU and more. Maybe there's another without the GPU?

That would be the Lenovo G40 line. I see a nice i5 for about 550 USD.

Your used model is marked up too high for used, no warranty, etc. I didn't dish the puny SSD but I never advise that small a drive.

Thanks for help, that Lenovo looks pretty nice actually. I thought 600 was fair but guess not...I'm looking for laptop that does everyday tasks plus some. Watch / download movies quick. Stream sports if needed. Was looking to play counter strike:go on mid settings with no lag. Etc. No hard gaming. Mainly browsing / movies/ streaming

No PC is without lag.

I guess you meant something else. Since online game play lag is mostly about your internet connection and not the PC most of the time. For gaming I'm back to laptops and a GPU with some dedicated video memory. Otherwise...

Do you guys recommend buying a used laptop? Sounds like it is an unpredictable item and buying new might be the smarter option? Thanks

Refurb for the right price.

This one doesn't compare well with new. Yes I know you are in Canada so prices may not be as it is here. I lived in Vancouver BC for many years so I get the idea.
