Hi, I was looking for a budget laptop in which I could play Dota 2. I have 2 choices; Acer laptop i3 4030u with nvidia 820m dedicated gpu and toshiba i3 4000m with integrated intel 4600 graphics. Which of these two should be a good budget choice for playing dota 2. I have read some reviews that these 2 gpu are more or less equal in performance.

They're going to be very close in overall performance, with the 820m being the marginal winner. I wouldn't suggest gaming on either of them.

What's your laptop budget out of curiosity?

5-7 Hours, meh that depends on the laptop, but I would choose the 820M as a clear winner,
First bcus of the performance over the Intel HD Graphics,
Second, you get alot of new technologies with the 820M from nvidia.
Hoped this helped you, but 820M is stille pretty low end, so get something with 840M+
but if that requires more money then your budget can hold, go with 820M. :D

Probably not as most laptops with that gpu is quite low end and don't have gaming as their main use. You could do this if the settings are low and you have a cooling pad underneath. I would get a more powerful gpu like the gt 840m.
