  1. Site is down for maintenance right now, but whats your budget for this computer? Are you looking for just gaming, or do you want portability too?

    The processor is nice and the graphics are so-so. You can get ~40 fps in medium setting for Star Craft II. You can see the benchmark here.

    5650m is a better video chip. You will see fps increases on medium settings, but only a minor difference with stuff on high settings

    have owned both and the Toshiba will play gta 4 at around 20 fps at medium settings. from my readings gta 4 is one of most intense games out. it will play crysis warhead on second to highest (enthusiast?)
    the lenovo i like better because it was thinner and the keyboard was nicer. it played Crysis on high ad around 25 fps and would play it on ultra but was a bit laggy but playable.
  5. You could try alienware, theyre prices are usually higher than you might expect, but if you wait for a sale you might get a good deal. Also if you call them when you order sometimes you can haggle off a couple hundred off your order. I got the m11x for $550 during blackfriday.

    I wouldn't suggest for anything below 30fps...

    name a laptop then. there are not to many laptops that will be able to play gta 4 with high graphics unless you pay for it. these are 800-1000 dollar laptops so they dont break the bank.

    this one has a much stronger gpu than those other 2 and would do a lot better:

    true that does have a better graphics card but the processor score about 500 points less in 3dmark06 3300 to 2800 so whatever is better for gaming then choose that one. i think that one will do better though cause i cant see that gpu bottlenecking that processor.
