Gaming Laptop: Suggestions Needed

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I mainly play Runescape and they "recommend an Intel i5 processor and NVidia 200 series or equivalent to have the best experience." The game is switching to an HTML5 client so now supports multi-processor CPU and uses the GPU more.

What is your maximum budget? $800

What country are you in? United States

What will be the uses of this laptop? Gaming, Runescape 95%

Do you have brand loyalty or care which brands we select for you? Not at all

What screen size do you require? 14-16" is fine but bigger the better

What screen resolution do you require? No requirement

Are you looking to buy NEW or would refurbished/recertified/used be okay? New

How long should the battery last? (Under optimal conditions, no movies/games/heavy internet) No requirement

What games would you like to play with your laptop? And on what settings? Runescape, max settings

What operating system do you need? (if any) Windows

Is there a certain style of laptop you want? (aluminum, black, gaming, etc.) No requirement

How much hard drive space do you need? Not very much, 100gb would be more than plenty

Do you need any special hardware? (blue ray, webcam, specialty ports, etc.) No

Is there anything else we need to know? Not really

Thanks so much I really appreciate any help smile.gif

Yeah I was about to recommend the Y580 myself to be entirely honest. It's more than capable of handling whatever you want. It's definitely the best buy you can get for that price point. biggrin.gif
