Component suggestions to look for in a 'gaming' laptop - Page 3

post #21 of 23
Anything that has a 6990M in it should about do it. But those are in $1500+++ dollar laptops like my Sager NP8150 15". Its a bad to the bone GPU!

Intel Core i7-2760QM Processor (2.40GHz, 6MB L3, 1333MHz FSB)
Genuine Windows 7 Professional 64
15.6" HD+ (1600 x 900 1920x1080) LED Backlit Anti-Glare Display, Mobile Broadband Ready
NVIDIA Quadro 1000M Graphics with 2GB DDR3 Memory
8 GB PC3-10600 DDR3 SDRAM 1333MHz SODIMM Memory (2 DIMM)
UltraNav with TrackPoint & touchpad plus Fingerprint reader
500 GB Hard Disk Drive, 5400rpm
DVD recordable multiburner
9 cell Li-Ion Battery - 55++
And I'm probably going to bump it to an SSD. So I can't complain with a free laptop. Plus the 1000M is somewhere in the neighborhood of the 540M and 550M, so I'm confident it will do well enough with Diablo III to keep me happy smile.gif

Are you sure it comes with a 2760 processor? That is a very high end model and supports native DDR3-1600 mhz memory. I think you meant 2670QM which is 1333. I have been wrong from time to time.
