Thread: Laptop choice?!

    Laptop choice?!

    I want to get a nice Laptop for when I am over someones house, out of town, vacation etc. I just play WoW, MW3 right now would like to run settings atleast on Mid-High settings and still run smooth. These are the two choices I found that I think are decent. What do you guys think?

    Thanks in advance.

    Choice B: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16834215191

    I think you won't be able to play MW3 on medium settings with either of those laptops (although I could be wrong).

    If I were you I'd save another few hundred bucks and get something around the $800~ range.

    The problem with the internet is parallel to its greatest achievement: it has given the little man an outlet where he can be heard. Most of the time however, the little man is a little man because he is not worth hearing.

    Neither. Get a 2nd gen CPU.

    First one (Acer) has a slightly faster graphics card and a slightly slower CPU, but both are pretty low end for gaming if you ask me. MW3 might be choppy with 30+ players regardless of settings, high settings would definitely be out of the question. WoW should be smooth on medium settings outside of 25 man raids.

    If you're willing to throw in an extra 150$ then I'd suggest this:

    I've got the laptop myself, it's very good

    With an $800 budget, I would recommend this:

    555m is a fairly high end graphics card for laptops, but the only drawback might be the dual core CPU, which should not make a difference in most games though. I would rather have a dual core + high end graphics card than a quad core + a slower graphics card. If you want the latter, then I would recommend this laptop, which fits in perfectly with your budget:

    That second laptop is a really good deal considering that laptops with a similar spec (i7 + 540m) are priced at least $100-200 more.
