Yes that's also good and has a more powerful VGA,the battery life will last about 1hr and 30 minutes though(lower than what you need)
Hmm... Well, actually, I don't need that good of graphics, just something that will support DirectX 10 (Eleven would be nice too) and a good processor so my XNA game projects don't take 2 minutes to load.
Then go with the Acer one that i linked,because i don't recommend anything lower than 5650 for gaming.
It has an Intel HD VGA which is far less powerful than HD 5650M.
Forgot to mention, it only needs to be able to play CoD 6 on med settings at 30-40 frames. (This is so I'll have longer battery life)
So did you even check the Acer one ?
Yeah, sorry if it sounded like I didn't. I just was wondering if it had enought battery life to match my requirements. Anyway, the Acer seems to have really good specs for the price, so thanks for pointing that out for me
Yes it will last for about 3hrs(with general tasks i think)
