So yeahhhh I'm heading to college this year and getting a laptop from my folks. Sadly I'm pretty hopeless when it comes to identifying what makes a laptop a good buy. My folks are too, although they pretend they aren't. My budget is around 1000 euro's and I'm looking for a laptop that can smoothly run games like League of Legends on average settings and do the easy stuff like making powerpoint presentations for school. So this topic is for any tips, recommendations, should I buy online or in store, assemble myself or readymade, buy from which brand, buy secondhand, buy international. Also anything I should look out specifically because it's a laptop. I've always been using a desktop so things like how long a battery would last are completely new to me. If you have no advice just post a computer horror story because those are always entertaining to read, especially after I have just fiddled around with mine for half a day over some stupid problem.
By the way this is the laptop my dad wants me to buy, any comments?: http://www.paradigit.nl/paradigit/pr...5/default.aspx
