    thanks!

    around 600 USD

    2) What size notebook would you prefer?

    15.6" or more

    3) Are there any brands that you prefer or any you really don't like?
    like: Acer, Asus?
    dislike: none

    4) Which country will you buying this notebook?

    Order on Amazon?

    5) What are the primary tasks will you be performing with this notebook?

    mostly just for home, for watching movies and YouTube, for some light games (a couple of times a month), and sometimes for work (mostly google drive, various marketing resources, nothing heavy)

    6) What OS do you prefer? Windows, Mac OS, Linux, Chrome OS, etc.

    Windows.

    7) Are the notebook's looks and stylishness important to you?

    Nope :)

    The Asus VivoBook you're looking at has too little memory (4GB) for practical use. Look for 8GB at the minimum.
    The Acer would work for you. Also try the MSI Modern line, like this 15.6" version. It's a little more than your budget, but it has much better specifications (16GB memory/512GB storage).

    Buying a nice used system with better specs could be a good option to stretch your dollars if the seller is someone you have good reason to believe you can trust. It's going to be hard to buy something new that is decent in that price range, but you should be able to get something pretty decent that is used and in great condition within your price range.

    It's not available now, but as an example something like this would be a good way of stretching your dollars... http://forum.notebookreview.com/thr...6gb-ssd-hdd-144hz-ips-lcd-rgb-mech-kb.834639/

    Dell's are nice, they always seem to have a student discount or some sort of other promotion. You can chat with their sales rep and maybe get an additional discount.
