Choose a laptop you think will fit my needs?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I want a laptop with good battery life, that doesn't break the bank, and it has to be fairly powerful. I'm thinking an i5 with 6GB+ of ram, and some sort of videocard that can handle basic games. I would love if the display was 1080p or 16xx x 9xx, and a small-ish form factor. can anyone help me find a notebook that fits most/all of these? I would prefer if it was under $1000, and when I say basic gaming just something that's there when/if I need it, just low or medium is fine. if battlefield 3 on high is possible, that would be phenomenal biggrin.gif

Sony Vaio SA, it's the go-to biggrin.gif . http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834127585&nm_mc=OTC-Froogle&cm_mmc=OTC-Froogle-_-Notebooks-_-Sony+VAIO-_-34127585 (note- Google around for the exact newegg model # to verify, it does indeed have the 900p panel) 13" with i5 and AMD 6630M. The only 14" 1600x900 laptops that I know of with discrete graphics are Alienware M14x, Toshiba Tecra R840, Samsung Chronos 14", and the Thinkpad T420/s.

Here's the Samsung NP300za , probably not the best choice, but definitely the best for a thin 14". http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/searchtools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=1705041&SRCCODE=GOOGLEBASE&cm_mmc_o=VRqCjC7BBTkwCjCECjCE
