I am looking for a reasonably priced general-use laptop for some gaming on the side.
There are some minimum specifications I would like to meet:
-15" (or larger) screen
-500GB (or larger) HDD
-Windows 7 64-Bit (any version)
-Minimum 5 hours battery life (on power-saving mode)
I do not know much about laptop-grade CPUs or GPUs but I am looking at:
-ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5650 (or better)
-Dual-Core 2.8GHz (or higher)
I may think myself experienced in the world of desktop PC's but laptops are all new to me. My benchmark program will be Battlefield: Bad Company 2 on medium specs. If the laptop can do that I will be satisfied.
