So the desktop that I have is a decent desktop but since I'm moving to college and I do not have enough space in my dorm to setup my computer I have decided to buy a laptop instead.Im currently looking for a decent laptop that can run games from today in medium settings.I would like to play crysis1 in medium settings and be able to play most games in medium settings.The most I would spend is $600 but since cyber Monday is coming soon I could probably be able to buy a $700 laptop for around $500.Anyways I need a good laptop that can run games from today in medium settings and that costs around $500 but the most I will spend is $700.
Sadly, laptops for gaming are EXTREMELY EXPENSIVE.
Even though crysis is 2007, its a very hard game to run. Mainly because the game was way built for next gen. $500-$580 won't be enough sadly, since were going into next generation for console, system requirements are rapidly increasing as we speak.
If I was you, build a PC instead, with $500, you can get a very good build, one which can play most games ultra and crysis as well.
If you are ok with refurbished, you can go with the Y500 SLI version from this list. You'll get GTX 765M performance level, 1080p screen, good sound quality for a laptop (from my experience). It's the fastest in this price range
2. New - you can get the Dell Latitude 15 3000 with Radeon 8850M for $700 with the current coupon. However, it comes with only 4GB of RAM and typical 5400RPM 500GB HDD. You'd be able to replace the HDD and add RAM along the way though
