That's more than I would spend. Though I don't have any suggestions, sorry.

What are you trying to do with it? I've been helping my girlfriend look for a $400 one. All she needs it for is web browsing, papers, netflix, and whatever social media junk. I'm a fan of dells so I'm pushing her to get this:

Really depends what you wanna do with it though.

If you wanna play any modern games on it at decent levels then no.

If you just want it for basically schoolwork, reports, internets, office programs, its fine.

I plan on mainly using it for school work. Watching TV and movies. Maybe play some games like League of Legends and some Valve games CS:GO and TF2.

Or would buying the y40 be better it has
AMD Radeon R9 M275 2GB

I am also able to get an additional $100 of any laptop on their site so that is a bonus.
