  1. Hey heartofgold,
    Take a look at this:
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834246324

    This laptop should be able to play Diablo 3 at High settings while retaining 40fps.
  2. thanks guys - looks like the gt555m in the lenovos isnt stellar, but what can i expect really..

    the y570 will be an option for me, anything else?
  3. 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=N82E16834230409

    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.
  5. 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 :)
  6. 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 :)
  7. 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.
  8. can or can't tell the diff? can as in the i3 is better?
  9. Yes, the i3 is better.
  10. 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 just reluctant to buy such an outdated model. i'm almost feeling like spending more just so i dont buy outdated technology, but i fear i will have buyers remorse =/
  11. i didn't see an i3 laptop, but spend more as in 800-900 range to get a 'future-proof' model.
  12. good call. i bought diablo 3 so i'm just itchin to play it, also why i'm forcing myself to really look at all the laptops available.
  13. one question guys:
    http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/829664-REG/Acer_LX_RNA02_008_Aspire_7750_AS7750_6458_17_3_.html

    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?
  14. is the one on notebookcheck the ddr3 version?
