Opinions appreciated on this laptop.

So finally, my 8ish year old laptop looks to be ready to hang up. So I am in the market for a new laptop, right now my budget is 500, I have been researching all week, asking opinions and I think I prefer to stay intel. So far I have found this which looks to suit my need. watching movies, basic photo editing are pretty much the only task I really do.

Please let me know your thoughts and other products you might have in mind. refurbished/used are also a consideration if they can possibly be had.

I can't say how it compares to others, but I got a Fujitsu 14" laptop with the newest 3rd gen i3 processor, a 750gb hdd, 4gb memory, 6-cell battery, standard ****ty screen and keyboard, for like $310 after rebate on black friday. Something like that would be plenty for your needs. I also liked mine because you can take apart the entire laptop with ease, something I might have to do eventually.

Well it's a long way till Blackfriday and kinda need a laptop soon. Was originally thinking tablet/laptop but dont think I can fit that into my budget, kinda kill 2 birds with 1 stone since I could do my gaming fix on the tablet.

I wouldn't recommend a tablet and laptop if you have a smartphone. It's too many portable things.

I prefre Samsung and Lenovo, really like Lenovo.

Asus seems to be in a spot where they are trying to downgrade a laptop to price with a hit or miss. at 399 with an i5, it seems to be a decent deal, nothing to write hope about, but really not shabby!
