Your Questions About Affordable Laptops For Gaming

Donna asks…

Is this a good gaming laptop?

Looking for an affordable gaming computer for DH to take overseas when he deploys. I found one for Black Friday on sale:
ASUS A72F-X1 Laptop Computer – Intel Core i3-370M 2.4GHz, 4GB DDR3, 320GB HDD, Blu-Ray/DVDRW, 17.3″ Display

If this isn’t a good one can you tell me some that ARE that are reasonably priced?!

Thanks!
When I said *reasonably priced* I meant in the $1000 to $1200 range. Something that won’t totally piss me off when hubby breaks it while deployed. :)

answers:

Gaming system did you say
& you do not mention the graphics which is the most important aspect of gaming
anyways, i find that the graphics is ‘Intel HD’

George asks…

Affordable laptop good for gaming?

I would like to buy my wife a laptop that would be decent for gaming (she really enjoys Spore and the Sims 2), but would like a laptop that won’t break the bank.

What kind of laptop can I get that’s under or between 700-1000 dollars that won’t run majorly slow while playing the Sims 2? What’s more, what are my options with regards to upgrading a video graphics card on a laptop? Is that even possible?

Thank you for your help!
Okay, if you aren’t going to give me the exact model number, your answer doesn’t really help me. While I appreciate the intent, I’m looking for specifics. Thanks.

Looking for an affordable laptop mostly for gaming, also for school.?

I need to get a laptop for school and I see it as a chance to branch into PC gaming, (I own all next-gen consoles and buy a new game atleast once a month to give you an idea of my addiction). Price wise, I’m looking around 1500. I’ve been looking at the Toshiba A305 Satellite customized w/ Intel Duo T9300, 4 gb memory, ATI HD 3650…
I dont know how benificial it is to have 2 hard drives or having either more than 120gb. Im not going to keep music on it past getting it onto my zune, (thats right, screw apple). And Im not going to go buy 50 games and play them all at the same time.
Which brings my final concern- I need to know that the system I have will run the games I play, smooth. I want to get the StarCraft 2 if that ever comes out and I dont want to have to worry about buying a new pc if it does in a couple years. Other games are or like the Witcher, WoW, Tabula Rasa, Hellgate: London.
If Im asking for too much for too little, or not even the right questions, please inform me!

im looking for a good inexpensive gaming laptop?

so i like gaming on the computer but i hate having to sit stationary with a desktop. i know theirs pretty much no cheep gaming laptop but an affordable one. some of the games i would want to play would be PSU, FFX, and MGS3 i think those would be the ones with the best graphics and im not worried about memory because i would just end up buying an external hard drive for it. as much help as possible would appreciated.
im not good at computer terms if you can tell

answers:

Based upon those titles, I’m assuming you would be using emulators?
Those games are all PS2 games and cannot run on a PC without the use of an emulator.

Such emulators require A LOT of CPU power.
Emulators rely on the processor more than the video card.

Many people run PCSX2 (a PS2 emulator) with a 9800GT, which is an obsolete video card.
So, a mid-end video card would be fine. I run PCSX2 with a Radeon HD 5770. The graphics card isn’t nearly as important to an emulator as the CPU is.

If this is the case and you wish to run on a laptop, you need a high-end i5 or i7.
Even then, the games may not be very smooth.

I’d recommend something like this

Mary asks…

Whats the best Mac laptop for gaming?

I play World of Warcraft and Sims 3 and I’m looking to get a mac laptop for uni.
Which laptop – needs to be a new one, so one being sold from Apple at the moment – is best for gaming, yet affordable?

answers:

You’d have to go with one of the MacBook Pros. Just check the specs on line at the Apple store and find one with the best video card you can afford.
