Hi everyone,

I am trying to get the best laptop that will play games for as long as possible on a budget, but I cant decide on the better configuration.

I'm looking at ASUS and lenovo laptops, mostly based on budget.

The ASUS laptop im considering is the G51JX-X3. it has 4gb ddr3 ram, i5-430 processor and nvidia 360m 1gb ddr5.

The Lenovo I like is the Y560, with their 532gb rapid drive system, 4gb ddr3 rm, i7-740 processor, and ati mobility readon 5730 1gb ddr3.

Would you rather have the i5/ddr5 gpu combo or i7/ddr3 combo for games and future proofing?

Thanks,

Brian

Well, you're getting a slightly better GPU with the 360m, which in turn will probably help you out a bit more with gaming. The 5730 isn't a bad chip and with the i7, may make up the difference. All in all, they are pretty equal. I'd shoot for the one that is the better deal price wise.

Hello
Well GT 360M is faster than 5730M as Kevin mentioned,and since most games are GPU limited,you better go with the ASUS one.It will give you an overall better gamin experience.

Thanks for the advice guys, its always better to wait and get 2nd opinion. Having said that, I think going to wait a little longer and save for an asus g51jx-x5. I cant imagine being held back at all with a system like that.
