Buying a laptop please help.

Hey guys I'm a newbie here and I want to buy a gaming laptop but my budjets not that big 900 max so really what I'm looking for is a computer that could run games off steam without lag. I also want a comp with a good Internet connection because my desktops Internet connection is worse then crap and it's driving me crazy. So really I'm not looking for anything super fancy just something that's able to play games with no lag ( some games I like playing are oblivion and team fortress two). Oh and I also live in Australia. So yeah can u help me ?

  1. Hello and welcome to the forums
    First of all,don't expect to find a gaming laptop within your price range.(The best notebooks you can find are powered with GT 555M or something like that)
    Also,Internet connection depends on your ISP,so buying a new notebook won't improve the internet speed(Compared to your desktop)
  2. Clevo W150HRQ goes between $825 and 850 w/o OS ... it has a GT555M

  3. Your bad internet connection could probably be your ISP so you need to contact them and complain. It might be your modem or your computer's RJ-45 port is going bad.
  4. He is in Australia and there is no way toaster_76 can get USA price. Laptop with nvidia graphics are really expensive (price inflated for some unknown reason), can only get GT520 for that price range.

    Checked with Cloveo dealer and GT555 laptop cost $1200+

    So I recommend amd:

    Pavilion DV4-3029TX
    Pavilion DV4-3030TX
  5. The best you can get is probably a laptop with a nVidia GT 520MX. The GT 520MX has slightly higher clockspeeds than the GT 520M. However, the GT 520MX is still considered a budget gaming card which means you need to play games with low settings in demanding games like Crysis and Metro 2033. You should probably get around 18 - 24 frames per second in a laptop with a Core i5-2410M CPU.

    Not familiar with online stores in Australia, but the following are two examples of Asus laptops in your price range:

    Asus K53SC-SX123X

    Asus K53SJ-SX078X
    http://www.umart.com.au/pro/products_listnew.phtml?id=10&id2=76&bid=6&sid=76227
  6. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834157877

    Not sure about the prices as mentioned by others, but this one seems slightly better balanced system than the 520 based ones. CPU may be bit weaker but on-die GPU is much more capable when compared to 520.

    This is much better value, provided you can hold off for sometime/save money.
