I'm not the one who's getting a laptop, I personally would prefer a PC any day over a laptop. It's my cousin, who is going to get a laptop. He wanted a suggestion for a laptop that could do mediocre gaming in a very fixed budget.
So I suggested him the Asus X550CC-XO072D, which in his limited budget seems to be the best option.
The specs of the laptop are as follows:
CPU: Intel i3-3217U
GPU: Nvidia GT720M 2GB DDR3 VRAM
Storage: 500GB 5400rpm
1. Is there any chance of this being able to play GTA V even on low settings? (I know it's not out yet but you might be able to tell from the speculated specifications)
2. Can this laptop play Far Cry 3 on low settings?
3. Any other extra information you might want to give.
