Hi I am planning to buy a laptop here are the few I shortlisted can you guys tell me which Is the way to go
This is the dell with 8850 ddr5 but comparatively I see it 4500u is not great
http://www.flipkart.com/dell-inspiron-15-laptop-4th-gen-ci7-8gb-1tb-win8-2gb-graph/p/itmdpzjm3hyzfbfg?pid=COMDPZJC9STYFRP9&otracker=browse&pageNum=1

This lenovo is almost final only thing making me think is the ddr3 740m will it be future proof? Also If it's 64 bit or 128 I m not sure
But it 4207mq is great also I get a 8gb ssd in a very nice price the spot

Here i5 4200m is good but again 740m for such a price difference

Finally this, a little over my budget but then again it 4200m will be good I think and it has 740m n14p gt1 I think it's the slides version with ddr5 also with the lenovo ultrabay so is it worth all the money?

My budget is almost 60000k~950$
I am looking to game I know laptop are not great for gaming and all but still I have to have portability I need to be future proof
My last laptop with core2duo and hd4670 was bought on 2010 and lasted with me all the way till now n played all I could throw on it until recently
So guys plz help me out
Also I am looking to develop for windows phone 8 it's sdk needs hardware virtualization so above processors support that?

Thanx a lot guys it will be great help

if you want to get a gaming laptop, I'd say look less at casual consumer brands like lenovo and dell (though they do offer top line laptops that can game), and more at custom/gaming laptop boutiques like CyberPowerPC, iBuyPower, Sager, Alienware, etc.

what's your budget? a powerful gaming laptop can go for anywhere from $1000-$2000

okay, out of all of the ones you listed, the best one would be the first one, the i7 4500U + 8850M, the CPU is a low powered variant, but that can't be helped when you need graphics power to run games well, it'll turbo boost higher when needed so imo it'll be fine

to game with higher settings on a laptop you need a high end graphics chip, a DDR3 GT740M will not cut it, it still depends on what kind of games you want to play, if it's not too demanding then get a stronger CPU. If you want to play the latest and greatest games, you'll need a graphics chip with GDDR5 memory, or the bandwidth will not be able to keep up

if you want to play those games then the 8850 is your best bet, most of the newer games nowadays are more graphics intensive than CPU intensive.

a strong processor like an i7 4700mq is nice but a GT740m will not run these games very well, if at all

memory bandwidth in the 8850M is much better, which is needed when you're running games that will transfer huge amounts of information through your graphics chip.

The bad thing is there's absolutely no such thing as future proofing when it comes to laptops. The only thing you can really upgrade is the RAM and hard drive. Everything else is pretty much made for that laptop. For gaming the best laptop GPUs are the GTX 755M and the Radeon 8850M, but keep in mind that they're not their desktop equivalents.

between those 2 laptops, the 8850M is a bit faster than the GT 650M, it has a faster memory type but is clocked slower, but it still wins out by just a little bit, especially if both are similarly clocked. In the samsung though you get a much stronger CPU.
