Iv customised up a sony vaio for 740 with the following spec - do you think it will run BF3!?

Intel® CoreTM i7-3612QM,2.1GHz
Genuine Windows® 7 Home Premium
500 GB Serial ATA (5400 rpm)
8 GB 1333 MHz DDR3-SDRAM
AMD Radeon(TM) HD 7650M 2GB

couldnt get an ssd on it or performance Ram - my concern was the Graphics!!

thanks for your help

PS: any other recomendations for an athetically pleasing laptop for gaming lol

Hello dunn2k;

It will run BF3.
You'll probably need to run on Low graphics settings to get a smooth, fluid gaming experience.

The new Ivy Bridge models have only been out a short while.
But I suspect when they do arrive the IVB/GT 650M combo will be over budget for you.

Size wise & weight wise the 15.5 Sony and 15.6" HP dv6 are nearly identical.

Got a link to your Sony model?

basically i just configured the E serioes on their website- ill link it anyway :)

i guess in essence a gaming laptop is out of my budget - this is as gd a spec as iv found for the price and i know the build quality is good too

my desktop is currently running a MSI 6850 1Gb GPU - how does that compare with the 2Gb 7650M in the laptop??

HD 7650M will perform a bit less than a desktop HD 5570
