I've already decided on the laptop I'm going to purchase (Lenovo ideapad y510p with GT750M SLI for 1050$ from newegg http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...)
My friend on the other hand is short a couple of bucks and only has about 700-800$ to spend on a gaming lappy. I showed him the lenovo y410p for 830$ but he really wants the 15in full HD screen and a GPU that will last a few years for being able to play games. He also needs a laptop because
A) He travels ALOT
I've been saving my money for the past year and a half (Were both 14, so 1050$ is
a lot) and he just started saving around thanksgiving so he only has about 550$. So what would be a decent lappy that will last a while AND play most games in at least medium settings UNDER 800$? I know it may be a lot to ask for, but if anyone has a suggestion, please post it!
You don't need to save too much to get a laptop that will play at medium. This should play low-medium, maybe not all games at medium, but most. It is only $530. I wouldn't spend more then you need when on a budget and this seems to be perfect. The only problem is the full HD screen. I don't think its possible to get one for that price range with a decent GPU, I really think that's a stretch. Anyways here it is, let me know what you think! http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Making sure not to exceed $900 I went through Newegg and this is the only option in the price range with better graphcs. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Its actually got a better CPU and GPU, and the processor is probably about equal to the GX 650M so its probably the best you will find.
1) That laptop is cheaper on Newegg.
2) Had you read his original post you would now he already knows about this laptop and plans to buy it for himself.
3) Had you read the original thread you would know this is well outside his friends price range
