Hey fellas, I finally cut-short my list to these 3 gaming laptops. So, I just want you to rate these 3 laptops on the aspect of their performance (playing games fluently). I’ll be thankful if you can rate these 3 laptops by giving them marks out of 10(again just consider the gaming performance aspect). Additionally, please also tell me what the difference between switchable graphics is. Are switchable graphics are known as crossfire/SLI.
Here are the 3 laptops with their specifications. 1) LENOVO Y560, PROCESSOR: core i7-740QM, RAM: 4GB DDR3, HARD DISK:500GB @5400rpm, GRAPHICS CARD: dedicated 1GB DDR3 with ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5730, SCREEN AND RESOLUTION: 15.6 HD LED Glare 1366*768. 2) DELL XPS 15, PROCESSOR: core i7-740QM, RAM: 4GB DDR3, HARD DISK: 500GB @7200rpm, GRAPHICS CARD: dedicated 2GB NVIDIA GeForce GT 435M, SCREEN & RESOLUTION: 15.6 FHD(1920*1080) B+RGLED display with TrueLife. 3) MSI GX660, PROCESSOR: core i5-460M, RAM: 4GB DDR3, HARD DISK: 500GB SATA @5400 rpm, GRAPHICS CARD: dedicated 1GB DDR5 with ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5870, SCREEN & RESOLUTION: 15.6 HD,Glare(1366*768) LED.
Unfortunately all but the second one has 7200 rpm hard disk which is quite important in addition to the graphics card. I believe you should try and get a 5870 card with a 7200rpm hard disk customized if you can.
well, the thing is that here in india there isn't much room for customizations in laptops. after a long search i find these 3 suitable to my budget and expectations. so, if you could just rate them on their graphic performance , it'll b great help.
hehehe.... well i actually don't know that. hmmm..thnks a lot bro for your advice. so are you sure that this HD5870 with this i5 processor is good enough to play games in coming future(atleast in 2011) without any hitches? and 1 more thing though, do you think that without switchable graphics,this GX660 will eat up battery faster, as other 2 models have switchable integrated graphics coz of i7 processor but this one has i5. i've heard that without switchable graphics battery consumption is much more.
