hey guys i was looking for a budget laptop of around 600 or lower for gaming on low setting at atleast 30 fps @ 1024x768 on bf3. I was considering the APU series but i want your guys inputs. Here are some laptops i found but i want your input.
I will probably be building a custom built desktop in the near future but for now i need a good solid budget laptop that would play games like mw3 skyrim etc on low settings as i will be doing video editing/ having lots of applications.
Remember that im trying to save as much moeny as i can due to that im only 16 and have to buy everything i get.
If you look at the column of GPUs listed just to the right of the reviews you'll see them ranked in order of performance. You want to get a GPU as high on that list as possible, as long as you're getting a CPU that's decent enough to support the GPU while gaming.
On your list of options there - the Core i5 2430M / GT 540M looks to be the stronger combo.
If those were my choice I would chose the acer as a no brainer. I am young too and know how it is with money. Wait for the big sales to come and get the best graphics you can afford in a laptop. If it were me I would also only consider the intel processors because they will offer much better performance for video editing and it will be less of a bottle neck on the system.
It seems you found the best laptop that newegg sells for $600 with that acer so go with that and you won't have any regrets. Unless or course you can wait a few more weeks and buy a laptop during the sales but you would have to be up right when the sales start to not miss a laptop.
