There's noooooo way you're gonna get a laptop with a dedicated graphics card at all for $500. It's just not happening.

I'm typing this text on one write now.

(EDIT: Admittedly, the actual model I have is this one, but my model was also in the same price range at the time it was available.)

Hm, I stand corrected. However, the 7640G is in the "Low-Midrange" section on this website. So, yeah, might as well be an integrated card.

"PC gaming is still just as expensive as console gaming"
Yes, that was sort of my point. PC gaming is often seen as much more expensive than console gaming. In 6 months, I've bought 3 $60 games and maybe 10 games that are normally $30. I've actually spent much less than that (under $100) and unlike PS+ I've picked each game, and I've gotten more games than I would've on PS+ in the same amount of time. Not to mention the free weekends they do.

Plus, who buys a game system and doesn't have a computer? Everyone I know who has a gaming console has at least one computer in their home. How much does a cheap computer cost? Maybe $200. How much does a PS3 cost? $250. Altogether that's $450, and I paid $480 for a prebuilt gaming PC.

You won't be able to play much on a $200 computer.

Well, you can, but only on the lower graphic settings.

No, not for gaming for doing taxes, email, etc. The $200 that would have gone into that can go into a gaming PC.
