Your Questions About Affordable Laptops For Gaming

Sandy asks…

Affordable laptop for gaming and recording?

So im about to get my first job and ive decided I want to save up for an awesome laptop. I will be using it for gaming (Minecraft, Ems and Roms), youtube, music, work, downloads, etc. The game I will be playing the most is Minecraft. It might seem like it doesn’t need much Ram but it’s quite the contrary. We have a Dell XP5 420(or XPS not sure. Whichever one is the desktop.), which is supposed to be a really nice and powerful machine from what my uncle said……. Anyways it crashes constantly when playing Minecraft unless I keep all the setting in the game to the lowest possible (I can sometimes push the render distance to Normal). So this worries me because I need a laptop. NOT a more powerful desktop. I am aware now that our desktop might not have much ram (which I think is rediculous considering the price). It also runs on Vista which makes matters worse. So ive done some research and I know that a 64 bit laptop is just too expensive. So I need a 32 bit, atleast 4gb of ram quad core laptop capable of handling minecraft and any mods that I want to throw at it, and I want to get into recording gameplay. Great multitasking is a must. So it obviously needs to be very well rounded. Anything 800$ or under would be great. That would only be 3-4 months of saving which I think I can do. Any 64 bit laptop would take 6-8 months which is rediculous. I could use some tips from more experienced gamers who play Minecraft maybe, and know all the different goodies on the inside that make a laptop capable of handling all these things. I don’t know much about laptops, just what I need from one, so please don’t be harsh lol. Thanks!
@Scott Thank you for the super fast reply. So do you have this laptop? The price is great. And it looks like it has 6gb of ram right?

@Jay Ess Thanks. But that laptop just doesnt have enough ram if it is a 64 bit. If im going to decide to get a 64 bit i want more ram. Paragraphs? Really? Don’t be a Prick.

answers:

You can afford a 64 bit machine. I wouldn’t buy anything else. Here is a great machine with dedicated graphics, well within your price range:

No, I don’t have that laptop, but I’ve had a different model, and I’ve worked on many different brands. I highly recommend MSI and Asus. Get Alienware if you can afford it… But who can afford it?

Yes, it has 6 GB RAM and 1 GB dedicated video RAM. Awesome specs for the price.

Good gaming laptop for about 800 euros?

Can someone send me a link to a good affordable gaming laptop. Recently i’ve been looking at this site http://www.gateway.com/computers/index.php?cmpid=topnav_computers
but they’re not amazing. Thanks.

answers:

The most important for a gaming laptop is video card and speed of cpu,the size of Ram, the speed of the hard driver. So I recommend you to buy a laptop with independent video card and buy an additional keyboard and mouse.(Keyboard of Laptop sucks). I know Dell has gaming laptop but it is too expensive.

Linda asks…

What kind of laptop should i get for gaming but for an affordable price?

I’m looking for a gaming laptop and not quite sure what to buy. I don’t need or really want the top of the line but i want something that can run games smoothly. I don’t care about the highest graphics settings or anything like that either. Price range is about 600 dollars but a little higher wouldn’t be that much of a problem

answers:

If you want to play graphical games, run heavy spreadsheets, do photo editing, etc. Then a laptop with 4gb and processor is going to work for you.

Betty asks…

Where can I find a gaming laptop that’s affordable?

I’m looking for a laptop to take to school that I can use for gaming and school stuff. I’m thinking I want either a Core 2 Duo, Core 2 Quad, or Core i7. I need atleast 4 gigs of ram, and a 250 gb hard drive will suffice. I also need a 1920 x 1080 screen (full hd res) and a blu ray player. Other than that I don’t really care what brand it is or anything. As far as the graphics are concerned, I’d like a 260m or 9700 gts or 4650 hd. I’m open to other suggestions.

Anyway my question is, where can I find cheap gaming laptops (refurbs are ok)? I already checked newegg and tigerdirect so don’t tell me that.

answers:

1) www.electrocomputerwarehouse.com

2) www.dell.com

3) www.geeks.com
