I'm looking for a halfway decent gaming laptop, 3-4 GB RAM, about a 100 Gigabytes Storage, a halfway decent processor. In short, something I can play offline games with, but nothing really pricey, looking for a price range of between 200 to 300 dollars CND. thanks.

i'm not picky, as long as it can run RPG maker games, and a few select others i'm fine, i'm not really worried about graphics and such.
So if I follow you, low end gaming is what you are looking for then?

At this point, second hand market might have what you need.

Okay, I'll start looking around.

EDIT: Considering everything, VinsCool is correct, the second hand market would be best if you are looking for something even remotely gaming ready at that price point, I'm sure a lot of the computers on the low end market can run RPG Maker XP, but, you most likely want to have a smooth operating system experience as well.

I was going to recommend a Dell Inspiron Gaming with a GTX 1050 TI or 1060 for a good value for money gaming Laptop.
But considering budget and what you want to run, definitely a second hand laptop is the way to go.

Yea gaming laptops are expensive as shit. My first laptop was 600 and it barely played wow. My first gaming pc was 500 and it ran crysis.

But msi makes decent ones that aren't that spendy. For something substantial gaming wise expect to spend about 800-900 bucks at the cheapest.

You can build a halfway decent pc for 400-500.

You're better off getting a desktop, trust me.

You don't want to be playing at 5 FPS, now do you?

Of course, budget is one of the many variables, along
with others such as: usage (heavy usage, light usage, etc.)
portability (you don't want a 6 pound laptop).
You should also notice that the battery life.
Don't be surprised if you experience overheat crashes.
will not be long. Don't expect anything good below $1000.

I'd take a look at this one:

  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    Yes but not as easily as just swaping. You have to install fresh copy of Windows on it, and you may be able to save some stuff from old windows on it, you will have to reinstall most

  • AncientBoi @ AncientBoi:
    I have a copy in my clouds
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    Personally I would clone the new lappy drive to old ssd lappy drive, using a Tower pc, so existing windows carries over
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    if your not worried about stuff on the old drive anyways
  • AncientBoi @ AncientBoi:
    no, I'm not
  • AncientBoi @ AncientBoi:
    copied stuff to this comp I'm on now already
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    If you have a windows copy, then yea if they both sata, or whatever, swap new lappy hd to ssd, and reinstall new windows

  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    Then save that new lappy hd to use as a external drive, you can get a enclosure for them for $10-15.
  • sombrerosonic @ sombrerosonic:
    i mean all i do when getting a new play with laptop is swaping the HHD with the SSD and installing Windows 10/7/XP

  • sombrerosonic @ sombrerosonic:
    an HHD is good for extra space while a SSD is faster

  • sombrerosonic @ sombrerosonic:
    so its really a trade off
  • AncientBoi @ AncientBoi:
    I have Win 10 pro on this
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
