HP Pavilion 15" Laptop
While there are certainly more powerful models on the market, this is a great option that should fit comfortably in just about any budget. It starts with an AMD quad-core A8-7410 APU that includes a Radeon R5 graphics chip which lacks any dedicated video memory but it does give you some solid graphics processing. The 8GB of RAM in this laptop is nice and you can spend a little more money to upgrade that to either 12GB or 16GB for even better performance.
You get a 1TB hard drive with this model which gives you a great amount of storage and there are some options for more storage or a solid state drive instead. This budget laptop includes support for Wireless-N but lacks Bluetooth support, though you can upgrade to Bluetooth and even add Wireless-AC support for just a little more money. The 15-inch display on this model looks very good and includes a DVD burner.
