I can't find any disadvantages at this laptop because i am not that expert..
17''screen, i7, usb 3.0, 8gb ram, 750 gb hdd, nice looking, 4.30 hours battery life in normal use
i quess the part you want to read is this:

Intel® Core™ i7-3610QM Processor
2.3 GHz (3.3 GHz with Turbo Boost Technology 2.0), 6MB L3 Cache
Mobile Intel® HM76 Express Chipset
Mobile Intel® HD graphics with shared graphics memory :bounce:


I am giving an example of Battlefield 3, because it is game that requires a lot... :eek:

You don't need an i7. You do need a dedicated graphics card. If it says Intel HD it will not play games well. It needs to be Nvidia or AMD

you can play using i5 too...just dont get i3's
with ssd's you get faster reads and writes as ssd's are basically bigger flash drives. they are expensive...you will experience faster loading of the game but the framerate is dependant on the processor and the graphics card

i think this is a good all around laptop. its a dual core hyper threaded to four cores (one physical core acts as two logical cores), dedicated 7730 amd graphics, 6 gigs of ram, 500 gb hard drive

remember you get what you pay for so depending on your budget you can get a 2 grand laptop with a quad core and best laptop graphics

i cant get on youtube or the other link you have provided as im at school with firewalls lol
30 fps is no good. you want to play at 60 frames for smooth gameplay

by others he probably meant other graphic settings such as: shadows, ambient occlusion, texture filtering, and such so basically he maxed out the texture settings and turned everything down
i cant think of all the graphic settings in bf3 from the top of my head

and yes the laptop i've linked you with is better since it has a Dedicated graphics and not the Integrated graphics. Think of integrated graphics of being cheap, mainly used for basic web browsing, powerpoint but they are weak when it comes to rendering 3d images in a game. Thats why you want dedicated graphics, dedicated graphics are better optimized or faster when it comes to playing games and having the eye candy turned on

Ok i quess there is a fight between AMD and Nvidia? or AMD and intel i am not sure.. not expert...

I am willing to spend about 1300 dollars(1000euros), so in the nvidia site it says GeForce GTX
The ultimate GPU for gamers. Delivers fastest performance and all the latest gaming technologies.

So i searched geforce gtx in newegg.com and with 1050 dollars u get this one(http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834152348) with gtx 660m.. is that one good? is the 680m and 670m a lot better than 660m?

The 680 is probably out of your price range. Sadly $1300 gets better quality then 1000 euros. You should look for the gtx 675m or the 670m. In the laptops I would suggest at 1300 are sager bp9170 and the halloween special at Ibuypower.com at 1400 I would suggest msi gt70 202. The gt70 008 is another good buy. A gtx 660 vs 670 there is a decent difference.

EDIT A suggestion
