I caved in

#1Sergei_DukanovPosted 11/1/2013 1:09:41 PM
I have a nice desktop and all, but due to work I am almost never around to use it. I thought about getting a chrome book and then I saw this deal on newegg.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=34-101-326

I was wondering if it would be strong enough to maybe play new vegas and some not too intensive games? Dont have to be max settings. Or if anyone knows a good dependable one for less than $500 will be great.

You're not gong to be gaming on a laptop for less than $500.

How did you cave in if you haven't purchased it yet? O_o

which is why I am thinking about getting a chrome book and just using it for netflix and all the other work crap.

I had a laptop years ago. Never use it much and it cost me a small fortune at the time. This time, I am trying to keep it as cheap as possible. Since if I want to play a game, Ill just turn my PC or xbox on. This laptop will mostly stay in the car.

just the thought makes me feel like I caved in.

And I received my refund from newegg. I have a little more buyers confidence, but I still dont want to go over $600 before tax tho.

It wont be pretty, but it should run new vegas.
