Gaming Laptop Tags: Laptops Gaming Intel i7 Last response: February 8, 2012 1:26 AM in Laptop Tech Support Share electric6978 February 7, 2012 11:12:39 PM I am trying to decide between two laptops. One is a HP Pavillion dv6 with i7 2670, 2GB HD7690, and 8GB of RAM. The other is http://www.toshibadirect.com/td/b2c/compare.jsp?poids=2... So my question is i5 with a 1.5GB GTX 560M or i7 with a 2GB hd 7690? I don't care about anything but gaming, which would be better? Any better solutions for 1100 or less? More about : gaming laptop electric6978 February 7, 2012 11:52:16 PM Okay so after reading many reviews, I am going with a 560m. Does anyone have any recommendations on laptops in the 1100 or less price range with this card? m 0 l rchrdmxfld February 8, 2012 1:19:47 AM I have the same hp laptop and find it plays most games ok on the low-medium graphic settings. I gave up playing games on it and built a desk top for approx the same price that plays most games on the highest settings. So can't really recommend it for gaming. m 0 l Can't find your answer ?

Still imo you have to spend big money to get a laptop that could be considered a true gaming laptop, rather than just a laptop that can play games ok. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
