Need to buy a laptop
 
Ok so im looking for a laptop under $900 dollars CAD, that's my budget
And i want one that's not so hot, good battery life
And hopefully it can play 3dgames + playing music and searching internet at the same time
is this possible?
don't care what brand

What size? ASUSTeK F9Dc-A1 Notebook at FrontierPC.com Canada

Size 15.4" or less 17 is too big, for some reason 13.3 " is more expensive then 14 and 15s right?

the Acer 5790-6279 probably will suit your needs:

it can be price matched for about $880 from Infonec.com.

As much as I dislike Futureshop, for a 15.4" this one is a good deal:

Future Shop: Computers: Laptops: Toshiba Satellite Intel Core2 Duo T5250 1.5GHz Laptop (A200-TJ6) - Future Shop Exclusive

For a 14.1":

Future Shop: Computers: Laptops: HP Pavilion Intel Dual Core T2330 1.6GHz Laptop (DV2714CA) - Future Shop Exclusive

alas Bruuzer, only the Toshiba w/HD2400 has a chance with any games, and it doesn't have a chance with any games, which is what the OP is hoping for. it's a tall order for something $900ish, but the Acer 5720G I mentioned fits perfectly.

Ah, you are correct - missed the part about 3D gaming. I am not sure I could recommend gaming on either of those.

I'll second this lappy,for under 9 bills its a solid little unit. Although the touch pad is a little sensitive IMO, but that could just be me, I hate touchpads
