not a mac

Yeah, definitely don't get a Mac. They're just overall not gaming computers of any kind.
Also be sure to read subforum rules before posting. I don't believe this is the correct forum.

I have the Hp Pavillion 17 Notebook PC. Its a pretty good laptop as it runs pretty fast, but it dies somewhat fast. Its also around $400 (US Currency) so its pretty cheap.

Stick with Windows OS if you're not going to be doing anything fancy. Linux if you have a reason to.
Not too big of a fan of laptops but if you're only going to be playing games that are easy to run like osu, I would recommend avoiding the pricier "gaming" laptops.

It depends on what Lenovo laptop you get.

why do you capitalize "osu"

Anything can run osu! haha it ain't a demanding game. For school if you mean basically anything that can use MS Word and Powerpoint then yeah you won't need anything powerful.

I'll recommend ASUS and MSi but like if you're interested in playing any other games that would laugh at an integrated graphics card then if you have the money, I recommend the ROG II but even something with the relatively weak Nvidia GT940M will at least run nice games on low at 40fps, but the 960M is as much as you'd ever need.

get a touchscreen laptop and connect a mouse with it, as long as you can learn mouse and keyboard as well as touchscreen i think you'll be good to go

not much needed, you can run osu on anything so ye
get something from the price range of $500 and your good to go
win 10 is prob the os you use but if you want to do extra work then get linux lul

Get one with a good integrated processor since you'll be using that for lower frametimes despite whatever your GPU is anyway.
Nvidia Optimus or even some AMD ones have problems with osu! (based on experience with different laptops and also from other forum posts), providing significantly higher frametimes and dropped frames compared to using the integrated graphics processor of your CPU. I reckon it's because of how this game is programmed in the first place.

I currently have an i7-6500U GTX960M and I'm using the CPU's processor with an average frametime of 1.5ms +/-0.2ms compared to the GPU which gives out a terrible 4.0~5.0 ms. That case is the same with my brother's laptop with an AMD GPU.

940M is at best a mid-range GPU. It's almost always recommended to play AAA games using this at 1366x768 resolution at low-mid settings, and this will net you a stable 60 fps. Most laptops with a 960M are quite overpriced, tbh. Best to get one during a holiday sale.

I would get something at least $500. Not just for the specs but for the overall quality build. The build quality is something you can't be sure of since the best idea you can get is from the reviews. For instance a $600 laptop includes intel i7, Nvidia GPU(any kind), and 12 GB RAM; sounds like a pretty good deal right? A laptop with those specs usually costs around at least $800 so that $600 laptop probably has a crappy build and probably won't last you more than 2 years. Overall, look at the specs and how it correlates to it's price. That should be a good indicator of the quality.

To be honest almost any windows laptop should suffice for you. But try to be sure of the quality of the computer you're going to buy. (check reviews!)
