    Need a laptop for school

    I'm going to be studying computer science and need a good laptop that has at least a 14" screen, can dual boot linux, and has good battery life without weighing 18 tons. I already made a thread about this in general but I forgot that this section was here lol. Can anybody help me out?

    Are you going to be consistently gaming on the laptop or are you just using it for school work?

    Then go for one in the shops/supermarket websites e.g PcWorld and try to look for something with good space and cpu. I have a HP Pavillion G6 it was cheap and well worth it for the price but if you want good specs for low price build it yourself (lel) so you can save a couple hundred bucks and spend it on Microsoft Office or whatever.

    Something like this should suffice;
    Newegg.com - DELL Inspiron i15RV-8524BLK Intel Core i5 6GB Memory 500GB HDD 15.6" Notebook Windows 8
    Seeing as you're only using for school you won't really be needing a GPU at all.
    i5 CPU's are also fantastic, and to be fair you won't really need anything specific.
    Including a 15.6" screen ^ ^
