It has got to be a 15.6" laptop with an i3 cpu for no more than $500 pre-tax. I suggested the Lenovo E530 via the EPP, but he needs it by the end of the week so thats not an option. So i looked on FS and found this Samsung: Link. (http://www.futureshop.ca/en-CA/product/samsung-samsung-15-6-2nd-gen-intel-core-i3-2350m-laptop-np300e5a-a08-silver-300e5a-a08ca/10199308.aspx?path=8f1537c0f5ae6b029328c516efc879a 7en02) Its got good specs, its lightweight (5.1lbs), and has decent battery life at 4-5hrs. I would normally also suggest an Asus like this one: Link (http://www.ncix.com/products/?sku=74127&vpn=K53E-QS31-CBIL&manufacture=ASUS&promoid=1382), but the only thing that makes it better is the reputation and warranty. Anyone have any other suggestions and/or comments on the laptops i mentioned?
