Need a suggestion.

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi this topic is going to be about the other side of "The time has come" because im going to sell my haswell rig and buy a laptop.. Ihave been out for a while now in laptops so i need a suggestion of what you wouldbuy or just some advice. Budget around 600 usd i dont think im going to spend 800 bucks really :-D Since i am a gamer i would still like a better gpu rather just a hassell i7 that woukd be serious overkill for something like that. Sure i dont need anything fancy really.. Close to lowest settings will be fine.. I WOULD LOVE if i would be abke to play dayz on that thing on lowest just the resolution but yeah dayz is a real hog... Or is it? Because good servers in that game is everything.. Oh and... I dont need alot of storage.. Like at all i would be fine with 100gb but ofc most laptops have overkill hdd.. Btw is it possible to use Ssd on thise things? Can i use ssd on that thing.. Just plug it in .. And i can imagine some serious speed losses right? And are amd's apu's implimented on laptops? Because i know they kinda kick some ass for a budget user if you arent going to use dedicated gpu. Thats about it.. Sorry for the ramble i couldnt find any better location to post this..since i was leaning towards the intel and nvidia combination. IDk nvidia just seems smoother and i i would need that if im going to play at 20-30fps :-D

First option is disaster because i will need to have some serious power to drive that 1080p monitor :-D and if i understand correctly the second ones gpu is better.. So your second option is pretty solid.. If possible id like some cheaper ones not more than 650 if possible.

I don't believe newegg has a laptop of that power at a cheaper price.

Amazon or another vendor might. Hate navigating amazon for computer components/laptops though.

Having owned a laptop only for quite a few years due to some circumstances, I wouldn't suggest any laptop at all for gaming. Maybe only for basic stuff. The fact that they are way (WAY) down on power is one thing. The small and usually bad quality screens, the cramped keyboard and usless trackpads and the fact that having to be hooked up to a wall socket defeats the purpose of being mobile, all contribute to a generally really bad experience. Add to that that there aren't any reasonably powerful laptops below the 900-1000$ mark by my standards, and you see where this is going.

Anyway, for the budget you quoted I don't think it gets much better than what Alanim posted specs-wise. If you prefer a different brand cool, but you won't get much more power. The second one (The one with the NVidia) seems a little better for your usage than the one with the AMD GPU and it's 40$ cheaper right now.

This is a decent spec that will play most games. My laptop has a 555m (630m is similar) and an i5 yet I can play BF4 without issues.

Honestly in eBay I see the lenovo y580 in your price range. I'd go for it.

I never said you cannot play games at all. It's just that most laptops offer a sub-par gaming experience. For example my laptop, an HP Pavillion dv7-2030ev (2.4GHz Core2Duo P8600,4GB DDR2 RAM and a 1GB ATi HD4650) bought in 2009, could play most games I threw at it. It even played Crysis at that time, albeit on low settings. The only reason I kept playing on it was because at the time I had no alternative. Bad image quality, small screen, low-ish framerates etc all contributed to an experience I didn't really enjoy. And that's why I don't recommend laptops over desktops to gamers. Even if it does play some of todays games, it won't be anything to write home about and for tomorrow's games... Don't even try. At least that has been my experience.

Now, if one has a proper desktop for gaming and wants a laptop for on-the-go gaming, then suit yourself.

With that said, the Lenovo has a sweet spec list for the price. It should blow both of the other laptops out of the water performance wise.
