budget:
800 dollars

resolution:
not huge priority, 720p is fine

requirements:
able to play diablo 3 on high settings

so as you can see, not too many requirements. i want to shy away from hp as i've had an hp laptop that had huge heating issues. thanks.

well i just bought this laptop and it wont play diablo 3. I have always built my own desktop gaming rigs and have never had a laptop until now so i dropped $2k for the ASUS flagship and it wont run on the minimum settings i know this is no help to you but maybe someone who reads your forum will be able to help you and me. As of right now i would say no laptop can but i have no experience so dont take my word.
P.S. this is the exact laptop i bought http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

I think you have an unusual problem. Notebookcheck has reviewed Diablo 3, and they determined it should run perfectly fine on a laptop like the one I suggested to heartofgold. If you'd like to start a new thread for the issue you have with your G75, that would be great.

i have decided to actually spend less seeing as how quite a few laptops are relatively cheap with beefy specs.

i've narrowed it down to these.

like I said, my primary (and pretty much only concern) is playing diablo 3 on decent settings.

that's nice, but i don't want a gaming laptop. just a laptop that can play A game and do other stuff, too. thanks :)

does anyone have personal experience with the a6 3400 series cpus? that, and the notion of overclocking one on a laptop? good/bad?

thank you junky for your input :)

Umm.. I think I speak for most people here when I say that overclocking your laptop is bad. They are not designed to do that, if you want better performance, you'd be better off getting a higher performing laptop.
As for the A6-3400 CPUs, I've used them before. Pretty good, but from testing one, you can tell the difference between it and let's say... the performance of a current Core i3.

gotcha. just reluctant to buy such an outdated model. i'm almost feeling like spending more just so i dont buy outdated technology, but i fear i will have buyers remorse =/

i didn't see an i3 laptop, but spend more as in 800-900 range to get a 'future-proof' model.

one question guys:
http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/829664-REG/Acer_L...

the 6850m in this laptop runs on ddr3 memory. notebookcheck mentions that the potential is reduced dramatically from the ddr5 version. if anyone knows, can you suggest how big of a difference you'd actually notice between the diff. versions of the same 6850?
