So I already have a nice desktop build for gaming, but I want to game on the go. I can't break the bank, absolute limit is about $650. I don't need high graphic settings, just something that will play on medium - medium-low settings on games such as fallout, Minecraft, and dolphin emulation(wii/gamecube emulator) without much tinkering. I was wondering what you thought of these (if they have a low amount of ram I will upgrade and I'll downgrade Windows 8 to 7 if I don't like it). Mainly, I'm considering the first one, but I'm considering the rest:

For sure. I just did a quick google search of that model number, and that laptop is equipped with Intel HD Graphics 4000. The Radeon 7640G in the HP will perform better.

I believe the HP might be the best choice. Two of them don't list the graphics hardware, and the other one is an APU but a bit less powerful than the HP.

So between the lenovo and the hp, you'd choose the hp?

Thanks, and for some backstory I used to game on a pentium 4 single core 3.14 ghz (oc'ed) 512 mb cache, 2.5 gigs of ram, intel g41 onboard with a 200 gig hdd. Oh. And I played fallout and other bethesda games, so really anythings better than that toaster(even though it's the most reliable comp eveeeerrr!) and I only replaced that a two months ago
