Hello,

I am looking for a new laptop to do some light gaming on as well as everyday use. The only games I plan on spending much time on are D3 and Path of Exile.

My first option is this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

And another: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

The obvious perks of the first one is the low price. I know the second choice is a better, faster, more powerful laptop, but if I can save $200 and still get a decent laptop I would like to.

Any advice is greatly appreciated! Thanks!

I know D3 will not run well enough in integrated graphics... will get like 10 fps.

As for the other one, it will be better but you will have to lower some of the settings. I'll see if i can find you anything better ~$700.

Hmm here is one that will run the games well but its $750

Not a bad laptop. I like Lenovo.

You may wish to get a Desktop monitor when your budget permits. Laptop screens are horrible for gaming (poor viewing angle).

You would use the HDMI output from the laptop (HDMI->DVI recommended). For AUDIO, you can just use desktop speakers and use the headphone jack output (will automatically MUTE the onboard sound when the cable's attached).

*At the very least, I recommend getting some inexpensive desktop speakers. Even some $30 speakers will be a huge improvement.

Also good advice photonboy, thanks! I have a few plans that hinge on how much money I have, and a monitor and speakers are definitely up there.
