    Gaming laptop for 1000€ max?

    I am very bad when it comes to laptops and their performance. I really just don't know what's good and what's bad.

    My budget is around 1000€ and I'd like to play the following games with at least these settings and acceptable fps...


    Skyrim with real HD package.
    Guildwars 2 on high, but not necessarily on ultra.
    Borderlands 2
    Risen 2
    LoL on maximum


    Any good suggestions? Is it even possible to buy a laptop in that range? I know that a good desktop PC around 1000€ is powerful enough to play all these games on ultra. But what about laptops?

    Thanks a lot...

    I would appreciate that, thank you I would order within Germany if possible. I would buy it soon because I need it before 18. February.

    They all have a bunch of models you can choose from and configure.
    Thanks. I can use this as a starting point. But my problem is that I don't know how good the hardware is. For example, is a 675MX going to be as good as my 660 GTX?



    What about this?


    Intel Core i5-3360M 2,8-3,5 GHz 3 MB Level3 Cache
    4 GB DDR3 1600 MHz Kingston (1x4)
    17,3 Zoll FullHD LED TFT 1920x1080 Pix NonGlare Type
    NVIDIA GeForce GTX660M 1024 MB GDDR5 RAM
    500 GB WD Blue Scorpio 5400 U/Minute
    128 GB SSD Samsung 830
    W-LAN Modul: Ultimate-N 6300 Intel


    All for 1114,00€. Would be okay... I guess I can pay those 100€ extra.


    How well would it do compared to my desktop?

    Intel i7 920 D0 @ 4ghz
    6 GB DDR3 Triple Channel
    GeForce GTX 660

    Not even in the same league as your desktop.
    A 660m is about equivalent in performance to a stock standard Radeon 7750.
    The i5-3360m is about equal to an i3-3220.
    Aside from that I can't be much more help sorry.

    The GTX 675MX is an underclocked GTX 660 running at about 60% of its speed.

    Uhhh... I was hoping that todays laptops are better than that :/

    40% worse than my 660gtx is quite a lot... especially for that price.


    According to slasher's list, this CPU would be way better... even though it's actually quite a lot cheaper. i7-3630QM 2.4-3.4 GHz 6 MB Level3 Cache

    My 920 has 5009 points while this one has 7,687

    This is a much more useful benchmark site.
