<$900 laptop with some gaming capabilities


Oct 13, 2009
Hi. I am basically looking for a laptop that I can use to game with. I do not need it to support medium or higher settings on games like Battlefield, but I'd like it to support something like Crysis 2, Guild Wars 2 or Skyrim on the lowest settings without crippling it's resolution. Location: Toronto, Canada. I was considering a laptop with the A10 AMD processor since it's integrated GPU is better than the HD 4000, though I also fear that it's also too slow. Any type of laptop will do. Looking at the tiers in NotebookCheck, I'd prefer it somewhere on the lines of Class 2 for the best price and specs at $700 if it is possible.

There are a few options out there. You can get either a dv4t (14") with 3rd gen i5 and 2gb 650m GDDR5 or a dv6t (15.6") with the same processor and graphics card both for around $750 after coupon NB119. Then there is the dv6z with the A10 and 7730m for around $725 after coupon NB119. Drop the dv6z down to the A8 with the 7730 and you are looking at a capable gaming machine for about $675.
