I am looking to buy a laptop that will hopefully play FFXIV, Diablo 3, and FFXI. My budget is no more than $700. Is it possible to find something that will work for all of the above? I know FFXIV is graphically intense, but I hear the new FFXIV 2.0 will be less taxing?

I like to go to newegg.com and browse, but I always end up leaving with no clue what I am looking at because of all the graphic card and CPU model are so confusing.

Hoping to get some expert advice here.

This is one I have been looking at:

The one you picked out isn't very good. Are you set on a laptop?
