I am looking for a 13" gaming laptop. I am constantly on the go and always taking transit, so I cannot afford to get a laptop larger then 13". I will be playing games such as StarCraft, Call Of Duty, and such. I do not need to play on ultra high settings, or have incredibly high FPS. I just want the games to be playable at medium-lowish settings. I am intending to use this laptop for the next 2 years.

I am wondering if anyone can recommend me any good 13" gaming laptop? I am looking for a laptop under $900 US.

I found the following laptop, and I thought it was OK. What do you think?
i5 - 480M - 2.66GHz
Radeon 6550M

  1. That Acer timeline which you found is one of the best 13" gaming laptops.
    M11x is also good but that's if you're OK with a 11" screen.
  2. That Acer Aspire Timeline 3820TG will do a good for you. And it's a good price too. Strong CPU and a decent gaming card.
    Acer Aspire 3820TG Review It's not an identical model. Your model has an upgraded CPU and video card. All the rest of the details in the review should be valid.

  3. Great. Thanks for the fast responses. Now I just got to look for a local Vancouver dealer that sells the Acer Aspire Timeline 3820TG cheaper then $770 for a 10% discount at MemoryExpress! I think I'll still continue looking around for alternatives just in-case I do see something better :)

    WR2: Where did yuo get that chart from?
  4. It's on the same Notebookcheck website where the review is linked.
