So here is the story. My girlfriend is in the market for a laptop around the 1k money range. She's stuck on the idea of buying one from a well known site like Dell, HP or Toshiba. So building one isn't an option.
That being said, I am not up to date with what is considered good for a laptop. So I was hoping you guys could give me your opinion.
My girlfriend will be playing World of Warcraft and Star wars the old republic on this laptop. She does not care about playing at the highest settings, but medium settings at least would be nice.
You will get better graphics using an AMD A8 or A6 Llano APU
HP make DV6 models with the processor graphics working in a kind of crossfire with a mobile graphics Radeon 7690m chip . This graphics chip is also sold as the Radeon 6750m
The performance is considerably better than the intel /nVidia mentioned above , and the cost a lot less too
The catch is that processor performance is lower , but still more than adequate for most users
It's the toshiba Qosmio.
We ended up finding a better Qosimo on Newegg for cheaper then what thosiba was selling them for.
$1300 and the Ram went up to 8 and the hard drive up to 1tb plus blue ray player.
