Laptop Specs Adequate?

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
I'm looking at this laptop -

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16834220903

for a bit of gaming (Mafia II at the absolute highest).

The only thing that I'm unsure of as far as specs are concerned is the GPU...

Do you guys think that I'll be able to pull off med-high on Mafia at these specs?

Sorry for the n00bish question; I'm so new to this lol.

The hard drive is going to be the tough spot, look at getting a small SSD as well.

I'm planning on using a 1 TB external, but what do you think about the laptop as far as gaming is concerned?

I'm very sure Nvidia 310M will not give you the performance you desire sooo I did a little online searching and found a more suitable laptop


I hope that helps. Cheers

Believe it or not, in my time scouring the interwebs today hunting around, I did come across that one, but didn't think much about it.

Now that I look at it, it has a few subtle advancements that I like, but for not much more than my first alternative.

The only thing is - I don't see a vender on that list that I have heard much about/would be able to see warranty info on. :/

Amazon.com: ASUS K53SV-A1 15.6-Inch Versatile Entertainment Laptop (Mocha): Computer & Accessories

I hope that helps. Cheers
Much better with 2nd gen i5, GT 540M 1GB, and 6GB RAM. But with it, the HDD needs to be replaced.

Why is that?

The warranty falls upon the manufacturer of the product, Asus, not the seller, Amazon. http://service.asus.com/warranty.html. But if you were talking about the return policy, Amazon offers up to 30 days from original purchase to return the product.

It's just that I've seen their products on sites like Newegg and such which have differing warranties from Asus (either 1 or 2 years from what I've seen).

Here's the warranty info for this particular product.

Also newegg claims that warranties listed on their products "may not be accurate or current" but is only there for "convenience".
