eraliahef : I'm starting college classes soon and I need a laptop for research/writing papers, but I also want something that can play games. I don't need it to run CoD 4 at 250 FPS or anything insane like that, but running most games at 60 FPS consistently on medium settings would be great.
The laptop I was considering is an Acer; its specs are:
AMD Phenom II Quad-Core Mobile Processor
640GB HDD (I also have a 1TB external)
AMD Radeon HD 6650M
Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit
and it's around $670

Would this get the job done, or should I invest a little more money? Any suggestions on a better laptop for my needs would be very appreciated.

GVgayle : 2nd degree murder? There is no evidence whatsoever that would indicate that Zimmerman was following Martin to shoot/kill him. Why would the state pursue that charge with no evidence to support it? If anything, it would be a manslaughter charge like the lead investigator suggested from the beginning. Is the state attorney truly putting this man through a murder trial to just calm down the minority groups. The state has not presented anything to prove murder, just bad judgment. That does not make Zimmerman a murderer! What am I missing?

Edillcelf : What you're missing is this: Zimmerman broke the only law that can acquit him.

"Dennis Baxley, a Republican state representative and co-author of the 2005 self-defense law, said Zimmerman negated his ability to claim immunity under the law by chasing Martin. Former Republican State Sen. Durell Peadon, another co-author of the law, said Zimmerman "has no protection under my law."

“This law does not apply to this particular circumstance. Stand your ground means stand your ground. It doesn’t mean chase after somebody who’s turned their back.”
-former Republican Governor Jeb Bush

It's not minority groups that need to be calmed down.
It's Florida's Republican elite p*ssed off at thugs like Zimmerman abusing their legislation.

envivekes : Hear me out, please: You're missing the emotions this case has stirred in a large part of the populace.

Racism and race-motivated killings are an integral part of America's long and troubling heritage. We are a racist nation. Many people have had enough of that. They want change. So it is easy to overload one single trial or one single person with the heavy symbolism of this heritage and these feelings.

I think that is what has happened.

franklynjehoj : ((((There is no evidence whatsoever that would indicate that Zimmerman was following Martin to shoot/kill him))) Correct if Zimmerman was following Martin with the intention to shoot and Kill him it would be premeditated murder under Florida law - 1st degree murder - because it was a planned course of action...

However 2nd degree murder definition is completely different than 1st degree murder, 2nd degree murder under Florida is a non-premeditated killing, resulting from an assault in which the death of the victim was a distinct possibility or The unlawful killing of another human being without justification or excuse as in heat of passion or in a sudden fight or act of violence...

If its found that Zimmerman was not justified in his actions to shoot martin or that Zimmerman was the one that provoked or started the assault that resulted in martins death then he could be convicted of 2nd degree murder. In many jurisdiction including Florida it is illegal to provoke someone and then shoot and kill them and claim stand your ground and self defense..

This is what happens when untrained, uncertified, self-proclaimed neighborhood watch captians carry guns and are stupid enough to get out of their vehicle, follow and confront a person they think is a criminal, when they have no such authority to do so and should have remained in their vehicle until police arrived.
Compounded by the fact that zimmerman said "I am Following the suspect" and the Police dispatcher tells the fool "We dont need yo to do that Sir"...

NitengekGen : I don't think there is a dispute that Zimmerman shot Martin and intentionally did so. It would appear, if that is the case, that the elements of second degree murder are probably met. It is the state's burden to prove the elements of murder. It is Zimmerman's burden to raise his self-defense/stand your ground defense. I don't practice in Florida and haven't bothered to research the legal burdens Florida adopts in criminal cases, but Zimmerman either carries the burden of proof on his self-defense affirmative defense or at least bears the duty to raise facts that could lead the jury to reasonably believe he acted in self-defense. There is a big difference between those two levels of burden but either way the state does not have the duty to raise and defeat every possible defense.
