I need advice. I am wanting a laptop for gaming purposes. I currently play Everquest and Diablo 3 on max settings on my desktop. I want to have a laptop that is reasonably future proof. In particular, I am trying to decide on the GPU card with consideration also going to the CPU. I am looking at:
The HP ENVY 17t-3200 is •3rd generation Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-3210M Processor with Radeon(TM) HD 7850M Graphics 1GB GDDR5
HP Pavilion dv7t-7000 Quad Edition with •3rd generation Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-3610QM Processor (2.3 GHz, 6MB L3 Cache) and •NVIDIA(R) GeForce(R) GT 650M Graphics with 2GB GDDR5 memory
Do I go with the faster i7 CPU or do I go with the i5 with a better GPU card (I am assuming the Radeon HD7850 is better than the GT 650 M)
Lastly, I could consider MSI G Series GE70 0ND-033US Notebook with generation 3 Intel Core i7 3610QM with NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660M 2GB GDDR5 for more money
The MSI only has a one year warranty vs the HP 2 year warranty and it also costs more but weighs less. Please throw out other options for the 1k to 1200 price point.
