I know $300 isn't much at all. But I won't use it for any intense gaming (Like GTA 5), just programming, emulation, EDuke32, and a few other simple things. A great graphics card isn't important IMO. I had shitty laptop for several years and the graphics never bothered me. And like I said, it won't be used for intense stuff, just some basic things and maybe a few more modern games (not too hardware demanding though) Processor: AMD Athlon 5150 1.60GHz Quad-Core AM1 RET Motherboard: MSI AM1I AM1 CV X16 2D3 M32 GL MITX RAM: 8GB DDR3-1600 PC3-12800 Hard Drive: Toshiba 1TB 3.5 SATA3 7200RPM 32MB Cache Optical Drive: DVD±RW DL 24x SATA Black Video Card: Onboard Video Graphics Network Card: 10/100/1000 Gigabit Network Onboard Keyboard & Mouse: Logitech USB Keyboard and Mouse Combo OS: Ubuntu Desktop 14.04.1 I have a Windows 7 disc at my house and may use that instead of Ubuntu.
