So, I did have a question out there addressing this, but I can't find it.
I am in the search for a laptop that can handle modern games. I definitely want it to run League Of Legends on max with no issues. I'd like it to also to do decently with some of the new games that are out, if my boyfriend ever feels the need to try them.
Please DO NOT say build a desktop. I built a beautiful computer 8 months ago and am not expecting a portable machine to run like that. I do not want to build another desktop. I want a laptop for the portable aspect. I would love to play on my balcony or bring it other places with me, so only laptop related answers please.
Ideally I would like to spend less than $1000 USD
As far as the CPU/GPU combo, that's where I'm stuck. When looking at system requirements, I'm unsure which laptops are compatible.
But I do want intel unless there's a kick ass AMD that I'm missing?
I would preferably like something that will last some time. I do not want something that will just run LoL, I will want it more advanced.
If anyone has any suggestions, I'm all ears!!
Sure the 7970m is powerful but certain games are completely cpu bottlenecked (gw2, hitman, need for speed, ac 3) and will run only at ~20 fps no matter the settings. In all the gx60 is about equal to a i7 quad plus 660m but worse because the i7 notebook can turn down details to play games while the gx60 will always be bottlenecked by the cpu.
I have the y580 and its pretty good, minor light bleed on mine (quality is decent, good but not amazing). got it with the 1080p screen for $899 on sale.
I would recommend staying away from hp or acer. MSI, ASUS, etc (and some boutique brands such as sager) have good computers for good prics.
