    So a couple days ago my laptop crapped out on me seems to have overheated and BSOD every two mins of turning it on so I went and bought a new one, but after hearing about it I am kinda worried I made a mistake. I want a laptop that I can use for mainly media like watching movies most of the time in 720p and the occasional gaming (older games like kotor, don't starve and mass effect) I saw this lenovo and was kinda forced to buy because of the brand and also the pawn shop wasn't very good. The laptop is very nice for a cheap one it's the B575 model

    Specs
    AMD Dual-Core E-450 1.65 GHz Processor
    4GB DDR3 SDRAM Memory
    HD Radeon 6320
    300GB hdd
    windows 7 ultimate (clean installed to 10 enterprise)

    Bought for $180, I saw some other ones that were way overpriced with IGPUs hd 2000s mostly. I was looking at the HP stream 11 and an asus one with a atom forgot its name.

    What I want to know is should I keep this for everyday stuff that I listed or get my money back and look at something a little better in my price range I can't go with a desktop mainly because I have no room and I travel a lot.

    My lenovo thinkpad has specs lower than yours, and is working great, so I think you should be fine :)

    I think it'll struggle with Mass Effect at times but might still be serviceable there. You also basically paid almost what it's worth so all in all, you did fine.
