I have been looking at three laptops within my budget and don't know which can run Skyrim. (Sorry is the layout is bad as the store I was looking at didn't have much info on them on the shelves)

Laptop 1 – Processor – AMD Quad-Core A6-5200 Memory/RAM – 8GB HardDrive – 1TB Graphics Card – AMD Radeon HD 8400

Laptop 2 – Processor – Intel Core i4 Memory/RAM – 8GB HardDrive – 500GB Graphics Card – Nvidia GeForce GT710M

Laptop 3 – Processor – AMD Quad-Core A8-4500 Memory/RAM – 4GB Hard Drive – 1TB Graphics Card – AMD Radeon HD 7640G

P.S. Information may not be accurate with missing some little details as they where based on my poorly taken photos

You won't get satisfactory performance in Skyrim with those specs. However, Laptop 2 & Laptop 3 will give you better performance than Laptop 1. Whats your budget?

Of the original 3 laptops listed, Laptop 2 with the GT 710m will give you the best performance since it is decently more powerful than the Radeon HD 7640g.

The Lenovo G505s as suggested by vinaykumar5320 would provide the best performance. The integrated Radeon HD 8650g is ranked between the nVidia GT 720m and GT 730m, but it is much closer to the 720m though.

For 400-500 we can do better usually in the uk thanks to medion laptops which are mainly sold by aldi but i buy from the website better selection from the medion website

i5 3230m
740m
4gb ram
1tb hd
495 pounds

medium settings at least

http://www.medion.com/gb/prod/MEDION+AKOYA+P6643+Laptop...

recomend a laptop cooling fan for longevity especially if you plan to game for long sessions laptops paste inside tend to get hard if gaming to much
http://www.amazon.co.uk/Thermaltake-Notebook-Cooler-Mas...

this will blow that lenovo g505 out of the water
http://cpuboss.com/cpus/Intel-Core-i5-3230M-vs-AMD-A10-...

8650 is considered higher end of the 3rd class
http://www.notebookcheck.net/AMD-Radeon-HD-8650G.87916....

740m
class 2 considered higher end of this class so way superior

Just wondering but where did you get the 8650 from? The G505s or one of the laptops I originally saw?

g505s has a 4 core a10 which apu is basicly a processor and graphics card on same chip
8650G is the graphics chip its a fairly low end chip

information about a10 5750m in the lenovo found here
http://www.notebookcheck.net/AMD-A-Series-A10-5750M-Not...

plus a10 is hit and miss with some games can be playable and some cant but the 740m and a i5 will work most games easily at medium
