I'm stuck and confused trying to buy a laptop. Please help - Page 2

post #11 of 14

The Lenovo Y400s seems like a good deal.

For 750$ you get a geforce 650M with an i7 3630QM. I cant vouch about the battery life though.

 

 

I would personally stay away from acer as they are, from my experience, a budget brand selling budget products.

Such a tiny screen on the y400 though.

Well since your budget is 700-ish, you'll have to choose between moar screen size or moar framerate.

I would take a lower end graphics card as the 650m seems a bit overkill for what I do. the 3870 seems to be ok for most the games I play and the 650m seems to be quite a bit better then that.
