I feel like this would be the best place to ask for advice on buying a new laptop since my current one is pretty much at its limit. My price range is between $500 to $600, maybe a lttle higher if need be. The heaviest gaming on it I plan to do is a couple fighting games and some indie steam games, nothing high end like current or new gen games at all. With that in mind what would be a good recommended laptop for me? Most of it will be used for streaming services like netflix and hulu.

Anything with a GPU that can play 1080p without stutters or slowdowns.

Thanks but I dont know how I would even figure that out. A point in the right direction would be nice.

It will mostly be sitting on my desk so size isn't really an issue. I'm not gonna be lugging it around all the time. For Screen size I wouldn't mind a little size to it so I can enjoy watching movies and other stuff on it. But I have an extra monitor that I would probably feed my laptop screen through anyways so its not that big of a deal.

at $500-$600 your choices are almost infinite at 14"/15"

probably can get an a10-5750m + discrete graphics card at that price range and you can play a bunch of games on low, maybe med settings. screen res at that price will most likely be 1366x768, weight probably 4-6 lbs. stick with major brands like hp, asus, lenovo, dell. if you plan on doing some coding i'd get an intel processor but looks like you're not

something like this:

Thanks cancerstorm. That one looks pretty good for what I want. So if that one is good then should I generally be looking for specs similar to that if I try to look for some Black Friday deals? I'm god awful with computers/laptops so I don't want to accidentally get a bad one.
