$1000 is a pretty solid budget to build your self a decent gaming desktop, spend the extra 500 on peripherals for that and whatever is left over for a decent laptop with good battery life for schoolwork/browsing in your free time.

I know they do, but I would just like the option to do some gaming between classes since my classes are 5 hours apart and I live an hour from the school. And I'm not gonna go back home between classes, and the school even has a pretty sick *** game lounge.

So I lucked out a lot with my financial aid.

So you actually don't even need the tax payer money that you're paying away frivolously.

I do need it. I just have a lot more than I would have needed. It payed for my books, my school supplies, and my tuition. All of which I wouldn't have been able to afford otherwise

lol just stop the argument it's poiontless you're on an online forum the Trolls will smell the blood in the water and devour you.

Don't get a gaming laptop "just because the money is there" it's literally a waste of money. Build a rig, buy a notebook with enough cpu power for the applications you use for you major, and pocket all other money for sick headphones, sound system, or even idk paintball stuff seeing that you're on pbn. lol

What type of games are you trying to play?
You can get a decent laptop for about 600-700 with a decent graphics card and could play games on that, then take the rest of the funds and build a desktop for home.
If you drop all that cash to just a laptop you will be very disappointed in the long run.

I've come to the point where that's what I'm gonna do. Haven't checked this thread in a while. But I'm gonna use the extra for something else, maybe car audio, or some car performance stuff.

And then next semester when I get another $2600 I'm gonna build a nice desktop, since I'll have a bigger budget.

Considering the classes I'm doing now are pretty much exactly the same as I took in my senior year of HS, all the work is stupid easy for me. Half the time I get it done during class.

Wait, I'm not really understanding. Is the money you'd be using on the laptop and desktop coming from your loans or your daddy?


I don't really like either option, but if it's coming from your loans I wouldn't do this. Last thing you want is even more loan debt to pay back.

Or is your tuition paid for some other way and this isn't considered a loan?

My tuition is paid for through a tuition program from the state.

The money is all from financial aid that I have left over. Everything for college is already paid for, I have no loans, I just have financial aid and I need a laptop for school anyways.

Go nuts then, you're not spending money any worse than our own government does anyways.

I have no idea about laptops, but for desktops newegg has recently done a few combo deals with a 4670k or 4970k with mobo's that were pretty good. I'd look for one of those.

Exactly. I mean, everything is already paid off and I have extra money. The only reason I'm doing a laptop this semester is because I need one for school anyways

And then next semester when I get more money and have a bigger budget, I'm gonna build a desktop.
