15" laptop for LAN sessions

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
I'm looking for a laptop that would run games such as minecraft, BC2 and maybe even Skyrim and BF3 when they get out (at low settings of course). I have my main computer which can probably max out these games but I would like a laptop for LAN sessions and for those weekends when I go home since I'm moving out soon. I would like to keep the budget down if possible.

Thanks

There was something similar to this that had a actual GPU instead of the HD 3000.
I wish I could find it. Someone had posted it earlier this week.

This. Really good price for an A8 APU. Toshiba's P750 is good too.

Thanks for the input. Are these the new Llano chips? I think I need to read a few reviews now

Also I have a appraisal thread about my old laptop, if someone could help me out with that too, thanks Linky

Edit:

What if I cranked the price up a bit? These laptops seem like regular notebooks. What I was looking for was a laptop for LAN sessions, I just assumed 600$ would be enough. Those laptops you posted were fine but I'm looking for something more powerful

If you bring your price point up another 100$ or two, you will find some great SB i5 rigs sort of like the one I posted, but that actually have a dedicated GPU.

How well do they run newer games?
post #8 of 28
Run them quite well. I think I've seen some with the Nvidia 545M and you could probably play things with medium to high settings.

Thanks, I think I'll sell my current laptop first so I can see how much money I'll have available

Would this laptop be good:

MSI GE620DX

There are two versions, one has an i7 and the other has an i5. The i5 one costs 799€ and the i7 costs 999€ so I'm leaning towards i5 here. Seems to be a pretty good laptop.

The specs for i5:
i5-2410M
500GB 7200RPM HDD
4GB DDR3 1066

The specs for i7:
i7-2630QM
750GB 7200RPM HDD
8GB DDR3 1066

What do you think?
