I was recently planning on building a desktop. That said, I'm a University student who needs a laptop. I was thinking perhaps, that I might be able to get two birds with one stone. Now, my concern is primarily the graphics card on the laptop - I'm not quite sure what to make of it.
Now, my primary concern is if it will be able to play ArmA 3 at useable framerates on high settings (ideally 1920x1080 on an external display, with model detail on high) - useable defined as not dipping *much* lower than 39fps at max load.
I figured I might replace my current desktop with this, and then I can also have all my files in one place for university as well. Now, for comparative purposes this is what I was considering (with minor modifications) for the desktop I was going to build.
Definitely not. Sorry. According to this profile, it's similar in performance to the 540M and 555M, which you can compare to mainstream desktop cards here: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/gaming-graphics-car...
It probably won't get you usable framerates on low settings. You want a 675M at least for high settings. Laptop GPUs just aren't good.
A real 670 (not a 670M) will do you very well in a desktop. Personally, when I go to college I plan to get a $300 netbook and bring my desktop.
