Buying Laptop advice Tags: Laptops Performance Desktops Last response: January 22, 2013 7:12 PM in Laptops & Notebooks Share newmodel January 21, 2013 7:11:18 PM Hi, Im thinking of buying a gaming laptop but I dont want to spend the earth so I had a look and found this one http://www.novatech.co.uk/laptop/range/novatecheliten15... I currently have a desktop Pc but wanted to play games away from home or just in other rooms, my main question is what sort of performance will I get from this Laptop compared to my desk top pc, will it be worse better or just the same? My Desktop pc specs are: AMD PhenomII X$ B60 3.30ghz Nvidia GTX460 1Gig GPU 4 Gig Ram (unsure of speed) Games I play are Battlefeild 3, Wow, Aion, Farcry 3, Deus-Ex, Crysis and a few RTS's Am I likely to see a performance increase with the latop over the desktop or will I need to spned more on the laptop? Any advice will be grateful Thanks More about : buying laptop advice ronintexas January 21, 2013 7:38:07 PM The video card on the laptop is about 10% slower than your desktop, but the CPU should be faster. It may be comparable in overall speed... newmodel January 22, 2013 6:37:09 PM Thanks for the help. So does this system seem like a good one?

The biggest limitation on laptops are you get freedom to move around, but often the hardware isn't as fast as a desktop. newmodel January 22, 2013 7:12:00 PM I see your point, well thanks again.
