Gaming budget laptop..please help!! :)


Jan 16, 2013
Hello I have been looking for the past 4 months for a good gaming laptop on a budget of $650 or less. I have looked a lot and found some laptops which are fairly good. The laptops I will list are from ...would like opinions on them Ty :)
Also suggested laptops will be great!

P.S. idk if I am in the right place to ask :kaola: :pt1cable:

1.It's a HP dv6t-6c00 Price: $600
Following specs are:
2nd generation Intel(R) Dual Core(TM) i5-2450M (2.5GHz, 3MB L3 Cache) with Turbo Boost up to 3.1 GHz
8GB DDR3 System Memory (2 Dimm)
1TB 5400RPM Hard Drive with HP ProtectSmart Hard Drive Protection
15.6-inch diagonal HD BrightView LED-backlit Display (1366x768)
1GB dedicated ATI Radeon™ HD 7690MX switchable graphics [HDMI, VGA] w/webcam

It's manufacture refurbished

I have reviewed the graphics card and saw this forum. :eek: I would like this if that issue is easily able to be solved.

2.Asus G73 Price: $620
Flowing specs are:
GPU:ATI Radeon HD 5870 1GB DDR5 discrete graphics memory
CPU:Intel Core i7-720QM 1.6 GHz
DISPLAY:LED backlight Full HD Display 17.3" 1600x900
HARD DRIVE:640GB HDD 7200rpm

It's an old model but its on the price range. It's a seller refurbished one. :)
My brother has the G74 model and it looks great! but am worried that g73, cause its an older version bout 3 years now, won't last long since I don't know if refurbishing a laptop would make it back to like new state.

Any other website that any of you can suggest that I can look for a good gaming laptop would be great :)
Games I play:
LOTRO :hello: :love:
BORDERLANDS :pt1cable:
CS:GO :na:
Batman Arkham Asylum
BF3 :bounce:

I am looking for a laptop because right now I travel a lot and have no intent to haul a desktop around the airport :p which can play at least medium in the range of $650 or less.. I will be a temporary laptop which can last about 2 years at least :D in a year or so i will get a desktop from or when I settle I a place and don't have to travel.

Thanks for viewing :)
