Wanting to buy a new, affordable gaming laptop


Jan 23, 2012
My old Fujitsu laptop died about 3 months back, lasted me about 7 years so I was happy with that.

I want a replacement laptop that I can use for some gaming.

1. What is your budget?
under $1000 preferably

2. What is the size of the notebook that you are considering?
15+ inch screen, I have access to a 10 and the whole system is just too small.

3. What screen resolution do you want?
Anything over 14*9 works

4. Do you need a portable or desktop replacement laptop?
Either would work, I don't take it outside a ton.

5. How much battery life do you need?
2-4 hours would be preferable.

6. Do you want to play games with your laptop? If so then please list the games that you want to with the settings that you want for these games. (Low,Medium or High)?
Diablo 3 (when it comes out, medium settings at least)
World of Warcraft (medium settings, ground textures)

7. What other tasks do you want to do with your laptop? (Photo/Video editing, Etc.)
Don't really need anything outside of Office suite products

8. How much storage (Hard Drive capacity) do you need?
300+ Gb would be best.

9. If you are considering specific sites to buy from, please post their links.

Are all ones I frequent

10. How long do you want to keep your laptop?
Probably 3 years for gaming, 5 years as a backup device

11. What kind of Optical drive do you need? DVD ROM/Writer,Bluray ROM/Writer,Etc ?

DVD drive, Blu Ray if it's not terribly expensive tho I already have 2

12. Please tell us about the brands that you prefer to buy from them and the brands that you don't like and explain the reasons.
Fujitsu - solid systems, hold up to accidental impact fairly well
MSI - always had good performance from their products

Dell - terrible amounts of bloatware, horrible customer support, have had issues with hardware

e-machine - same as Dell

13. What country do you live in?
United States of America

14. Please tell us any additional information if needed.
