I'm looking for a good laptop for games. I want to play most games on medium to high settings. I've been looking around, and these laptops caught my eye.

2. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834312830
3. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834314119

Opinions? Will these do? There is a poll on this post.

Also, i'm open to suggestions. My price range is anywhere from $300 - 600. It should be able to run games at 30 FPS from medium to high quality.

Also, I play lots of Minecraft FTB. Will these computers be able to run it at 30-60 FPS? Keep in mind, if these aren't able to run FTB at a decent FPS, I am willing to look at other laptops.

Thank you so much for the help!

Thanks for the advice! However, are you implying that none of the laptops i've selected will do? I am a little confused.

Do not listen to him. I am personally buying a laptop also and done all of this research already. You are like the 3rd person he has recommended that laptop too, and its not the best choice. The 3rd one you listed yourself is the one I plan to buy. It is at least equal in processing and gaming power for a lower cost. At best it will perform a good bit better. I am not 100% sure on all of these details but I know 100% for sure that it will at the very least perform equal.

The reason for this is the one he listed has a Trinity CPU. The reason this is worse is because the third one you listed is a Richland CPU. The Richland CPU's were made to replace the Trinity CPU's because they perform 20-40% better at the same or lower power.

In terms of gaming they both have two graphics cards that they can use, but the graphics card in the 3rd system you listed uses less power and performs significantly better because its based off of AMD Radeon 7000 Desktop graphics. The one in the laptop he listed is based off AMD Radeon 5000 graphics which are from like 2009 and perform much much worse.


Your best option is to buy the 3rd laptop you listed, which as I said after doing a lot of research is the laptop I also found to be the best laptop system to buy. It outperforms everything $750 and below in gaming and over all performance including gaming.

One side note, the 3rd one you listed has only 4GB of RAM. I plan to by an 8GB stick of RAM and expand the system up to having 12GB of RAM. Placing this in is very simple, and the laptop plus the RAM comes up to $600. While it is not needed it shores up one of the weakest aspects of the system, leaving it with only a slightly lower CPU performance as the only weakness, and it will not be noticeable unless you are running really CPU intensive programs.

Thanks for the advice! I will wait a little longer for more opinions to come in, however that was very helpful!
