Hello, I've recently been searching for a laptop that can be used for live streaming and gaming (not simultaneously). I'm constantly on the lookout for websites that keep me informed on the latest computer parts/notebooks. Any information will help that the community can provide.
My only filters are a budget around $900-$1100, and I would prefer Windows 7. I'm mostly using this laptop for streaming through while using my PC at home, and also on the go gaming. Here are a few games I have spent the most time playing lately: APB Reloaded, Battlefield 3, Minecraft, Crysis 2, GTA 4.
Thank you in advance if I miss out on sending a reply.
I've heard a lot of nice things about the Y500 series; however, there are a lot of cons to weight in. The starter build is definitely compatible for upgrades further down the road. I'm afraid that without a charger for everyday "student" use the battery won't last. Streaming and gaming are not a problem while charging this laptop 100% of the time. Although I've heard nothing but bad reviews about the battery even when not running anything 'battery consuming'.
I am still considering this Y500 model on my list of possible laptops I would buy.
I've added some additional details to the OP that I recently thought up in the shower.
