Mid Level Gaming rig

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I dont want anything fancy. Just something to play my games here and there. I found 2 so far.

HP ENVY TouchSmart 15t-j000 Quad Edition Notebook PC
E4T18AV

Windows 8 64
4th generation Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4700MQ Processor
NVIDIA GeForce GT 740M Graphics with 2048MB of dedicated video memory
15.6-inch diagonal Full HD BrightView LED-backlit Display (1920x1080) touch screen
8GB DDR3 System Memory (2 Dimm)
1TB 5400 rpm Hard Drive
6-Cell Lithium-Ion Battery
No Internal DVD or CD Drive
Backlit Keyboard
HP TrueVision HD Webcam w/ integrated digital mic
802.11b/g/n WLAN and Bluetooth(R)

851 + 62 tax + 10 shipping = 923

or

Toshiba Satellite P50-ABT2G22 Laptop

Intel® Core™ i7-4700MQ quad core processor
Windows 8
8GB DDR3L memory
750GB (5400RPM) hard drive
NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 740M with Optimus™
DVD SuperMulti Drive blue ray

Wi-Fi® 802.11 b/g/n
2MP (1080p) webcam
LED backlit keyboard
HDMI output with 4K capability
Starting at 5.3 lbs

1057 after tax + free shipping

Is it worth going with toshiba?

I called HP to see if they offered any more discounts but they said no. I have 213 dollars off to get it to the 923 price and the toshiba is 280 to get it to the 1057 price but i dont think the toshiba is worth the extra 120 dollars.

Any other notebook suggestions? Here are my requirements
i7 4th gen 4700k
1080p touch screen
dedicated graphics card other than the trash that intel integrates
and bluetooth

I hate acer so only try if you have compeling proof why an acer you suggest is so much better than their past stuff.


Thanks for your help.

For what your paying (assuming it's a desktop, not a laptop) it would just be easier to build a rig for the price.

What in his post made you assume they were desktops?

Will this laptop be used for work/school? If it is used primarily for gaming I usually do not recommend laptops.

Thanks for your help.

If you are going to be spending a lot of money why bother grabbing HP's laptop?

What is your budget and what country you live in?

Beside, both of the laptop appears a bit of a rip-off for that specs and price.
I mean for that price on either Toshiba or HP, you can get Lenovo IdeaPad Y400/Y500, Y410p/Y510p or Y580 which it is far superior in term of quality and performance especially Y500 where you can do SLI making it either mid or high level of gaming rig.
