$600-$700 Laptop for Starcraft II and Touring (Maybe a little more expensive)

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone, I need rapid and good responses please. I am helping my buddy who goes on tour with his band to find a laptop that will support his needs. He plays Starcraft II and just other stuff like Facebook on tour. What can he get for the best bang for his buck, playing Starcraft at optimal settings, and $600-$700.

Thank you for all that help!

$100 more you get an i7 Ivy Bridge and a 630m (probably could find it cheaper on other sites)

What do you mean by "tour"? what's the change?

Anyhow, I think the dv6z quad edition (qe) is a good option: link

You can customize it to have a higher density battery or FullHD screen. Just remember a Radeon 7690M GPU upgrade. With FullHD display, it will run SCII on high settings and with 1366x768 it will run smoothly on high to ultra settings - read here.
I don't think there is a better bang of buck laptop, gaming performance-wise.

$399, Oc to 2.0 Steady 67 c (quad core 1.4 ghz no OC) 6650m crossfires with intel 3000 for 6720g, best bang for buck. Buy a second one in case it breaks ha. Auto notify and you will get biggrin.gif

Touring with his band, heavy usage on the road, durable system with great performance.
