Looking for a new laptop that I can game on at low settings.

Are there any laptops with better CPU or Graphics at this price point? I am not picky on brand or size preferences. Really just wondering if there's anything that would perform better than this at same price point. Cyber Monday Deals?

For that price, likely not, to get to a faster video card you need to spend maybe another $100 or 200, which likely is worth it since you can't upgrade that range of laptops. What you buy now is what you have till you replace it. See if you can find something with a 960m video card, even if it means going a bit over $600.

When I was looking around, it seemed like even the 950M was well over $600.

The cheapest I have seen with a 960 is from the Cyber Monday thread.

Anything cheaper than this with a 960M?

That Dell seems like a good model, good mix of CPU and video card, plus an IPS screen and 256 gig solid state drive. I can't imagine another system being much lower in price with those features. The gaming class laptops with a 960m (non-Acer, Dell and those mainstream brands) start at close to $1,000 for a 960m video card. I think for $760 for the Dell you can be safe of getting a good spec system at a good price.

Remember you are going to be using this thing for 3+ years, spending 20-25% more to get a much better experience with using the system is easily worth it, unless you really can't afford anything else.

That's a good point. Maybe I will just have to scrape a little extra together. Thanks
