Small gaming laptop?

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
I'm on the lookout for a small, energi-saving and, preferably, noiseless gaming laptop (Or notebook, I don't know what's what). Any suggestions or good experiences from you guys? It would be great with some help with computerspecs and stuff.

Thanks!

NB. I don't really know if this is the right forum to write in, don't pick on me if I'm wrong.

small, energy saving are the almost polar opposite of gaming laptops. it is possible to find a midpoint though.

look into the lenovo y560. It is a 15in widescreen monitor laptop with a dedicated GPU and will play most games at high settings.

you might be able to get a good deal on one since it isn't a new model.
they are also going to release the y570 soon which will feature the new sandy bridge chips.

for 1000 dollars you can get the y560d which is the y560 with a 3d screen on it.

here is the lenovo website link for the y series laptops.
http://shop.lenovo.com/us/products/l...apad/y-series/

My GF has the y560 and I love it. It is a great laptop and is super fast. She has the model with the i5 in it. Which I would highly recommend, just make sure you get the one with the radeon card in it, they do offer one with just the intel HD graphics.

One nice thing about that laptop is it has two graphics cards in it, so you can switch between the HD 5730 and the intel HD depending on what kinda battery life you want and what kinda stuff you are doing.

It is a very nice laptop. I just would suggest to get the dual core i5 instead of the i7, because the i7 isn't hyper-threaded and only runs at 1.6ghz vs the i5 which is hyper threaded and runs at 2.5ghz. So you have 4 threads on both machines and the i5 runs almost 1ghz faster. I feel that you benefit more from the speed then from the cores.

It does say in this review that it's hyperthreaded. (: Is it the same modelnumber but with variation, or what? I don't quite get you Can you post some kind of a link to this i5-laptop?
