I recently (about 6 months ago) got a HP Pavilion g6.
I did not want anything super powerful at all, seeming as I mainly play Tera Rising, and Skyrim (I am fine with it being on low graphics)
However, never have I had such a terrible laptop before. It freezes constantly, overheats within 5 minutes of playing Tera. Generally just not the best, for anything really.
HP has agreed to give me a refund.
I ~was~ going to use that money to build myself a gaming PC; though I realised I really do enjoy the convenience of being able to take my laptop with me, especially since I fly overseas to New Zealand a lot, and take my laptop on the plane.
I am currently considering these two here, One, two.
I will only need to pay a slight difference after the refund, but would like people's opinions on these two (keep in mind - like I said, mostly Tera and Skyrim for me, sometimes Morrowind and Don't Starve)
If you know any others that are better suited, and around the $800 mark, feel free to make a suggestion as well!
