Hey everybody, so I am looking for a laptop for my 16th. First laptop my parents are going to be buying me, and my first laptop ever.

Basically here is what I am looking for –
Price: 500-700 CAN
Speed: Preferably fast. Able to multi task, and have a game open and not slow down much
Graphics: Looking for some good graphics. Just enough to play Wow at max, and play Sims 2 maybe.
Memory: Not much of a concern, have a 500GB external harddrive but bigger would be better.
Outputs: Does not matter much, some HDMI, VGA or DVI would be nice but doesn’t matter.
Screen Size: Something that is good for watching movies on, and playing Wow.
Brand: Anything if you can help prove it is reliable. I hear a lot of good things about Toshiba.

So I am going to be using it for school mainly, and maybe Wow if I can. Just would like it to be the BEST bang for the buck. Nothing online, I am going to go to either futureshop or bestbuy and buy one. I live in Canada so if you can go on the sites and maybe search around and help. I will also post some maybe you can give some suggestions.
Futureshop.ca
Bestbuy.ca

So here are a few I found. I have heard people suggesting that #1 and #2 are good. Not sure about the other 2 yet. I want a reliable laptop that won’t *[email protected]:ing break or *[email protected]: like that.

Just whilst you are waiting for answers,the size of your memory is not the size of the internal/external hard drive.
