My wife is in need of a new laptop. She is a flight attendant so she travels often. In her down time, she likes to game a little. We played Final Fantasy 11 since NA release and now would like to move on to Final Fantasy 14. They are both MMO's which is nice, because we can play them together even while she is away working. That being said, a laptop is our only option.
I have been racking my brain and reading so much information that everything is starting to blur and not making sense any more. The most we will be able to spend is $700 (US), because we have other obligations, such as raising our kids
The best laptop I can seem to find in our price range is this:
Bottom line, do any of you think this machine will do what we ask of it, or are we pretty much screwed? Other laptop users, if you wouldn't mind and could find it in your brilliant hearts, would you mind running the benchmark and producing your scores? I'm really at wits end on this and I need to purchase a laptop for her soon.
It looks good for the money IMHO. Very good even.
But it's not the newest current tech. This i5 430 should be previous gen tech if I am not wrong. Same for the videocard, although there I think the newest gen is not better in terms of performance.
