I have a dilemma. I am buying a new laptop and have narrowed it down to two. I am going to be using it for school most of the time, but would like it to still be able to play (new) games and online games. One of the computers has a dedicated graphics card, but slow cpu, the other doesn't have a dedicated graphics card, but way faster cpu. What do you guys recommend?
Asus UL50VT $729
- 4GB DDR2
- GeForce G210M
- Intel Core 2 Duo SU7300 (1.3Ghz I think)
- 5400 rpm
Asus U50F $629
- 4GB DDR3
- No dedicated graphics card
- Intel Core i3 Processor (2.1GHz I think)
- 5400 rpm
Neither option is likely to be very satisfactory gaming laptop.
The GeForce G210M is a very weak GPU, but it's still about twice as strong as the Intel HD graphics chip in the U50F.
210M / Intel HD
Battlefield: Bad Company 2 (2010) low:
28fps / 16fps
CoD Modern Warfare 2 (2009) low:
56fps / 26 fps
Hello and welcome to the forums
Neither of those laptops you mentioned will give you a good gaming experience,
The Lenovo model which WR2 recommended is way better than both of them and is worth it.
