I found an asus with the following specs: intel i5 2340m 2.4 ghz processor with a boost to 3.0 ghz, 6gb DDR3, 640 gb hdd, and intel hd graphics 3000 for 550. Should I wait till my birthday(which is in may) and add 250 to my budget or do you think the specs above are good enough. I'm leaning towards buying it now but I can be persuaded if you tell me te reasons why

What are you using it for? If you're only watching youtube videos and doing basic functions, it's over spec'ed, and if you're wanting to game on it, the graphics simply will not cut it (nor will any laptops').

This is not true, you can find a laptop with a dedicated video card that can run games just find. Will it be as good as a pc? Of course not, but laptops are decent for computer gaming.

Got it.

The integrated, non-dedicated Radeon 3000 graphics are utter shit btw. I would add $250 on your budget and get something that is AT LEAST radeon 4250 mobile dedicated or above.

I had a 2008 Alienware M15x that ran circles around most computers at the time. played crysis on high with a good 30fps. but that aside, they dont last long.... and when they die its rough. mine died the other week in the middle of a lecture.

however if i were you i'd look into the new Chromebooks if your really just going to use it for web surfing and facebook
