I'm in the market for a new laptop, but price is the main factor. I gave up thinking I could get a laptop that would game well for around $500... until I came across this:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834246328
It has the integrated AMD GPU and a discrete GPU in crossfire making it a HD 6720G2.

The reviews seem to suggest it can do the job without cutting back on too much detail. In fact I found this video of a similarly equipted laptop...

...it seems to game rather nicely for the price.

It's about as good as you'll find for $500 right now.
Unless you run across one of the A8-3520MX models with HD 6750 that go on sale from time to time.

Unless you're in a hurry - you probably want to check on the next version of AMD APU called Trinity. May 15th is the announcement date.

Wow! I didn't know about the Trinity. How long do you suppose it will be before the major players offer it in a laptop? Do you suppose it will still offer dual graphics?

Thanks a bunch for the information. I think I will just wait for the Trinity line to see if the laptops being sold are good gamers for $500 - $600. Maybe some of the crossfire kinks will be worked out that plague the LLanos.
