Laptop for Starcraft 2 and other Tags: Laptops Starcraft 2 Product Last response: June 8, 2011 10:50 PM in Laptops & Notebooks Share firediver June 8, 2011 1:41:29 PM Looking for a decent 15" laptop that will run Starcraft 2 on at least medium. Main uses will be starcraft 2 and school stuff. I assume gaming will be the driving factor for the system. Price range is < $800. No specific brand in mind, but I need it sooner than later so cannot wait a long time for custom build. Located in the US. Would appreciate some advice.

One very good option: Lenovo Y570 Sandy Bridge 15" notebook Core i3 $720 / Core i5 $765 with 4GB RAM, 500GB HDD, JBL speakers, 15.6" 1366x768 LCD w/ GT 555M graphics.
