Basically looking for a good laptop for college. I found a laptop on newegg for 750$+ shipping which was 4gb ram, i5 processor, and i believe it was a 1gig ded gfx card, but all i really care about is playing Starwars galaxies on low or medium. don't think I need 1 gig of dedicated graphics for that. but i don't think an intel hd integrated card would keep a constant 30 fps on the game. I would like atleast an I3, and i'm shooting for 500-600. I don't play fps games too much so I don't need I'd need a good gfx card whatsoever.
