  1. with that budget and ur demand, u will need laptop with screen resolution of only 1366x768. Playing on FHD with high or ultra for those games gonna cost you a very expensive gaming laptop. my recommendation is Lenovo y410p with Nvidia GT755M for ur budget and 1366x768p. then again if u want to wait, lenovo is updating their line up with Y40 and Y50 with better gpu for around the same price if im not mistaken.
  2. thanks man but i want something with full hd and i dont mind playing on medium settings
    here are the specs i want
    proccessor= intel corei7
    ram= 8 gb or 16 gb
    storage = 1tb
    GPU=nvedia gtx 750m or higher
    touchscreen if possible
  3. where you buying from? if it's USA then plenty of laptops can easily top that spec you want, except for the touch screen:
    if you live in the USA then - touch screen option but much weaker: http://www.xoticpc.com/asus-n550jvdb72t-touch-p-6116.html?wconfigure=yes
    non-touch screen but so much more graphically powerful (like seriously, this thing's will beat the above's graphics in SLI.) here:
    non backlit version and silver: http://www.xoticpc.com/sager-np7358-clevo-w350ss-p-6991.html?wconfigure=yes
    backlit version and is black: http://www.xoticpc.com/sager-np8268-clevo-p150sma-p-6986.html?wconfigure=yes
    there are larger and smaller versions with the same spec on that website, you get a free copy of assisins creed as long as you ask for it, BUT REMEMBER TO CLICK FOR AN OPERATING SYSTEM.
    this is the best bang for your buck.

    hope this helps.
  4. thanks
    i know i am asking for a lot in this price but can i have 16gb of ram and cooling system too as many people say that cooling helps a lot.
    also will the laptops you listed above be able to run the games that i listed above
    Someone told me that lenovo y510p is really good for its price
    By the way i live in india
  5. also if you could recommend me laptops only from these brands
    dell
    lenovo
    HP
    asus
    MSI
  6. you don't need 16GB of RAM unless you're doing multiple video renders or using CADCAM or stuff like that, 8GB is more than enough, all laptops have a cooling system, if you don't think the regular one is sufficient then get thermal paste and apply even more, or buy a cooling stand.

    right india throws a major in the works, since there's no decent laptop seller I know of for India, so you're going to have to look into importing a much weaker laptop, even the y510p may be out of your price range.
  7. What about asus is there no laptop i can consider buying from asus in this price range
    I have heard that asus rog (older version) is preety good and is for only 1000 dolars or should i go with lenovo y510p
    Also what will be the price of the cooling plate you mentioned above.
  8. SORRY
    the cooling stand
  9. Though alienware is pretty above my price range should i consider buying it
    and will it last me atleast 4 to 5 years
    i really like the look of alienware but is it worth its price or is it just like cheaper gaming laptops
  10. buy a desktop. laptops are not suggested for gaming :)
  11. WILL lenovo ideapad y510p bee able to play the games that i listed above
    is inspiron 7000 siries touch good please take a look here and tell me

  12. i know i do have a desktop but i need something portable as i am always on the go
    i would not play the latest games on the laptop it would just be for casual gaming
    but it should last me at least 3 to 4 years
  13. the Lenovo y510p with an SLI config will be able to play your games, but its above your price range I think
  14. thanks
    what about asus g55vw
    please tell me is not worth it
  15. Can the lenovo ideapad y510p be touch screen

    Also i want to ask weather i can use my xbox360 controller for windows to navigate through the live tiles just as in the xbox
  16. Thanks
    i think that i would go with the lenovo ideapad y510p
    Can the xbox controller for windows used to navigate through the live tiles in windows 8
  17. Is it a hurry that you want a laptop? Because I would suggest to wait for y50 or y40 to arrive in India, and then make a decision.
    You can also check and compare various specs of different laptops in that range (which is around 77000 INR) on website like flipkart. Or if you live near Delhi go to Nehru place for good deals and a price idea.
    What are you looking for exactly, pure extreme gaming or mobility of your system? Because if you are looking just for gaming purpose then laptop isn't a good alternative. At that same price you can build a rather great system which will work for next 4-5 years.
    But the end choice is yours always. If you feel like getting a laptop then get one but wait for y50 for it is much better than y510 at almost same price.
  18. I am ready to wait
    about the desktop thing are you talking about the whole system or just the CPU in this price
    and is the price of y50 same as y510p
  19. Is the lenovo ideapad y50 launched or not . PLEASE TELL ME
  20. Thanks construct
    you are a big help to me thanks for all the advice
  21. Yes the y50 will cost more I don't by how much. Although you can still wait and see if it comes within your budget.
    http://news.lenovo.com/images/20034/Y,%20Z,%20C-Series%20and%20LBG%20Monitors%20Spec%20Sheets.pdf

    About desktop, then you could consider this
    CPU: i7-4770k Rs 23889.
    Mobo: Asus Z87-A Rs 13568. although you can find better alternatives for this
    RAM: 8 GB (2x4GB) Corsair Vengeance DDR3 4 GB (CMZ4GX3M1A1600C9) Rs. 2910*2= 5820
    GPU: Sapphire Radeon HD 7850 2GB GDDR5 Graphics Card Rs. 14500.
    PSU: Corsair VS 650 Rs 4100
    HDD:WD Blue 1TB Rs 4100
    Case: Antec X1 Rs 2400.
    Total Rs 68377. (Prices are approximate, from www.flipkart.com)
    Screen - benq Rs 3-4 k and a mouse/keyboard combo about at 2k and ups at 1-2 k. Anything else you can add and reduce on your own.
  22. The lenovo z50 has pretty good specs
    can it compete with the lenovo ideapad y510p
    ALso does y50 lack the cd drive cause i will go for the lenovo ideapad y510p if it does lack the cd drive
  23. no z50 can't compete with y510p. z50 has class 2 GPU 840m and y510 will has class 1 GPU gt 755m.
    y50 does look like mac book air so maybe it won't have cd drive. Although some websites claim y50 has an optical drive while y40 won't have any.
  24. What is the difference between class 1 and class 2 GPU and which one is better
  25. Class 1 are the best GPU that are around, and class 2 comes after then class 3 and so on. look up this link for more details
    http://www.notebookcheck.net/Comparison-of-Laptop-Graphics-Cards.130.0.html
    y510p has gt 755m SLI version which is class 1.
  26. is that GPU good for playing games and after how much time will i have to replace it
  27. 755m sli will work for a few years definitely, although seeing the transition through gaming tech, it won't play games at high-extreme settings after 3-4 years. The new resolution of 4k is being adapted in the 800m series of nvidia graphic card.
  28. but if i play games at medium settings in full hd it will last me atleast 3 to 4 years
  29. Yes it will work smoothly for at least 3-4 years. I can play assassins creed - 3 at mid- low settings, nfs most wanted 2, cod mw 3, dishonored on intel hd 4000.
  30. Can the xbox controller for windows used to navigate through the live tiles in windows 8
  31. Microsoft Xbox 360 Wired Game Controller Model 52A-00004 is completely compatible with windows 8.1 so yes that means you can.
    Just google for various tips and tricks and other information for the controller.
  32. The toshiba s siries gaming laptops are pretty good
    any recommendations
  33. I go with Construkt I have no faith in their products. I have heard no recommendations for it either.
  34. Also i like this model of dell
    PLEASE TELL me if i should consider buying this one
    http://www.dell.com/us/p/inspiron-17-7737/pd?oc=dncwj2126s&model_id=inspiron-17-7737
  35. I dont like the zbooks
  36. I would also be running softwares such as adobe cs6, flash, photoshop
    and the u processor does it really make a difference
  37. If you are willing to go as far as y510p then why are you looking at envy series. Y series of lenovo are better, but if you want you can look at these models-
    http://www.flipkart.com/computer/compare?ids=COMDRYNYFSPBHN74,COMDZ59FESCW6E46
    if this link does not show just search the models HP Envy 15-j133TX Laptop (4th Gen Ci7/ 8GB/ 1TB/ Win8.1/ 4GB Graph), Lenovo Ideapad Y510 (59-390016) Laptop (4th Gen Ci7/ 8GB/ 1TB/ Win8/ 2GB Graph)
    and y510p has been updated as flipkart often don't update their catalog often
  38. so is the dell inspiron not suitable for my needs cause i really like its looks and the envy and the inspiron are touch screen too
  39. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834152406

    This is not as updated as it can be, but the updated versions are at $1200, if you can spend the full $1200 I would HIGHLY recommend the MSI GE60 Apache Pro-003, the reviews are pretty unfair from Newegg...check Amazon's reviews, and buy from VallySeek as they have it on sale fr $1193...you might need a coupon for shipping otherwise it may be over $1200 slightly.

    Essentially either or will runt hose games with high fluidity the 765m was a high end mobile GPU from last year and into this year...typically features on laptops that cost over $1500, and the 860m is 33% better.
  40. what is the difference between ddr3 and gddr 5 graphics cards
  41. MSI is not available in india

    If you would tell me that out of

    HP ENVY 15 or 17 touchsmart

    AND

    Lenovo ideapad y510p

    which is better to run gta 4, nfs most wanted , tomb raider, batman and softwares such as adobe dreamweaver cs6, photoshop and flash cs6
  42. Which one would be the best out of the 2
    Please tell me as i have to buy a laptop within the next week
  43. DDR 3, GDDR5 are flash memory types and gddr5 is the latest tech in memory like rams and graphic cards etc.
    And I have recommended two models earlier I would suggest anyone of them.
    HP Envy Touchsmart 15-j120TX comes ddr3 GPU and core i5 4th gen I wouldn't recommend it against y510p , or envy 15-j133tx which is without touch.
  44. THe y50 will be costlier than the y510p but the question is by how much and when will it be released any idea

    Also is the y510p better than the hp envy 15 j133tx . the hp envy has 4gb of graphics card and it also has expandable ram upto 16 gb
    It also has better looks than the lenovo ideapad and also has a fingerprint scanner inbuilt
    But which one would be better for me and which one would last me longer. Atleast 3 to 4 years
