Need a new laptop Tags: Acer Laptops Product Last response: June 12, 2012 6:04 PM in Laptops & Notebooks Share kieranfb June 12, 2012 5:08:25 PM Hi, I'm new to this forum, and all forums in general, so I'm not sure if this is in the right place but... I'm looking for a new laptop, because as you can see the one I have at the moment is very bad (HP mini 210-1000) I've been looking at http://www.laptopsdirect.co.uk/Acer_Aspire_5750G_Core_i... this one but I wanted a second opinion. I want to be playing games like Battlefield 3, maybe call of duty, skyrim and Minecraft. Also I would be using it for video editing, but not at the same time :] Would this laptop be good enough for my needs? Help appreciated -Kieran More about : laptop WR2 a c 572 D Laptop June 12, 2012 5:21:29 PM Hello kieranfb; That NVIDIA GeForce 610M is quite weak. It's more of a home entertainment card than a gaming card. It's fine for Minecraft, no so fine for the rest.

If you want to get your Skyrim on, you'll want something beefier. Related resources Need advice for new laptop - Forum New laptop, what is the bloatware that I need to remove?

WR2 a c 572 D Laptop June 12, 2012 5:47:28 PM Something like this: Acer Aspire 5750G 15" notebook £500 Core™ i5-2450M 2.5ghz CPU, 8GB RAM, 500GB HDD, 15.6" 1366x768 LCD w/GT 630M Graphics kieranfb June 12, 2012 5:52:42 PM And that would be capable of Battlefield and such? Thanks -Kieran WR2 a c 572 D Laptop June 12, 2012 5:55:26 PM It will run BF3. I don't think you'll be happy with the performance though. It's very marginal. kieranfb June 12, 2012 5:58:17 PM I don't mind low graphics settings, as long as it doesn't lag WR2 a c 572 D Laptop June 12, 2012 6:00:32 PM Did you look at the 'average' FPS in the GT 630M link above? You're talking 'Lag City' when you move into fire fights, explosions or busy busy game play. kieranfb June 12, 2012 6:03:04 PM I see. I'll probably buy that one still, thanks very much for the help! -Kieran WR2 a c 572 D Laptop June 12, 2012 6:04:24 PM You're welcome. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
