Gaming laptop for my son. Price: $800 - $900 Tags: Laptops Gaming World Of Warcraft Last response: May 12, 2011 4:36 PM in Laptops & Notebooks Share mail4youtoo May 11, 2011 3:10:56 PM I'm looking to purchase a gaming laptop for my son. He normally plays WoW and at times will play CoD blackops His old Toshiba laptop is 4 years old and I want to get him a better laptop so that he can have the option of playing better games in the future. He has talked about Crysis and Crysis 2 I have looked into the Sager NP5160 http://www.sagernotebook.com/index.php?page=product_inf... I also saw a nice laptop an HP from a link on slickdeals http://www.shopping.hp.com/webapp/shopping/load_configu... With a code I can get it for $850 with free shipping. Spending $900 is really the limit as the ex-wife and I are going to split the costs A 15" screen is the lowest limit I would like to go 720p resolution is fine as well as that is what he has now. Battery life is not as important as he normally plays with it plugged in Being able to play World of Warcraft with max settings is top priority. A normal DVD is fine. He doesn't need Bluray Basically the video card is a top priority. All he really wants this for is a gaming system he can take to friends houses when he goes to visit. I am leaning towards the HP as it really seems like a great deal. I am just not familiar with HP laptops. Any suggestions or comments?

It will be upgradeable and much faster. Laptops are expensive for what you get, break easily and you can't really work on them yourself if there is a problem. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
