In need of assistance - brother needs a laptop for games.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Alrighty, my brother is in need of a laptop, I promised I'd help him find one so here we go.

What is your maximum budget? 5000 DKK - 912 USD - absolute maximum (Would like it to be somewhat under this if possible)

What country are you in? Denmark

What will be the uses of this laptop? It will be used for playing a few games, including World of Warcraft.

Do you have brand loyalty or care which brands we select for you?
None.

What screen size do you require?
Would like it to be 17 inch.

What screen resolution do you require?
Would like it to be 1080p

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 requirements.

What games would you like to play with your laptop? And on what settings?
World of Warcraft is all that he has told me - I suppose he'll find other games to play in the future, so let's just say BF3 on low/medium settings.

What operating system do you need? (if any)
w7 64bit or w8 64bit home premium.

Is there a certain style of laptop you want? (aluminum, black, gaming, etc.)
Would like for it to be black, prefer matt.

How much hard drive space do you need?
anything above 250gb is great.

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

Is there anything else we need to know?
Nothing as of yet.

Appreciate any type of help, since I do not know that much about laptops.

Quick bit of googling show me your anything serious doesn't look to be in your budget, but this will run WoW and BF3 on medium. 1080p isn't in your budget really it seems and neither are laptops with the video cards that could handle it.

HD 7730m benchmarks


This next one has a bit better GPU GT 750m, but paired to a low-power Intel CPU. I'd take the one above over it myself. I add it in part to lead you to this edbpriser site. Your budget is low for gaming laptops ...especially due to the VAT tax. Look for the following GPUs: Nvidia GT 730m, 740m or 750m or AMD HD 7730m, 7750m, 8750m and try to match it to an i3 or i5 Intel o AMD A10-5757.
