Sorry to bother with yet another one of these lol, but was hoping to get an oppinion on 3 laptops for starcraft 2 gaming, movies and general tasks. I'm not expecting everything to be ultra ofcourse but curious if any of these would manage to run the game in high settings reasonably.

Acer Aspire AS7552g-5488 $799.99 cad


* Windows® 7 Home Premium 64-bit
* AMD Phenom™ II quad-core mobile processor N930
* 4GB (2/2) DDR3 1066 MHz SDRAM
* 500GB SATA hard drive
* Integrated Super-Multi drive (DVD+R, DVD-R, DVD-RAM)
* 5-in-1 card reader
* 17.3" HD (1600 x 900) display
* ATI Mobility Radeon™ HD 5650
* 802.11b/g/n WLAN, gigabit LAN
* Integrated webcam

Toshiba Satellite L675-01r $930.00 cad


* Intel® Core™ i5-450M processor
* Microsoft® Windows® 7 Home Premium
* 4GB (2/2) DDR3 memory
* 500GB hard drive
* DVD Super Multi drive
* 17.3” HD+ TFT with TruBrite™ with LED backlight (1600 x 900)
* ATI Mobility Radeon™ HD 5650 Graphics
* 802.11 b/g/n Wireless LAN
* Integrated webcam


Gateway NV5909H $699.95 cad

- intel core i3 330m 2.13 processor
- 640 gb 5400 rpm hdd
- 4 gb ddr3 memory
- ati mobility radeon hd 5650
- 15.6" led display (1366 x 768)


Basically as many have mentioned before the gateway seems like a great bang for your buck, but i thought the other 2 were relatively good deals as well granted their larger desktop replacement models. I do take the pc out occasionally but it mainly stays home. Will the gateway still fair well against the other two or is the $100-$200 price quite justified? If minimal differences in performance and game play i'd prefer the budget priced gateway. Any input is appreciated thankyou!

I would go with the second one because of having the best CPU/VGA combination

I agree with Maziar. The second options has a superior CPU in comparison to the other two, which will come in handy for gaming. If you want a better idea of what to expect performance wise from the the three different CPU's, have a look at this:
