    [Help] Looking for decent laptop for gaming.Computer experts needed!

    Hey I posted a thread a while back in the computer section, but that section is basically dead.

    I'm looking for a decent gaming laptop for gaming. I'm not looking for high-end laptops for high-end games but something decent.
    Budget: 500-800
    Games looking to play: CF,Combat Arms,A.V.A on all Max settings with Max FPS and maybe NFS and BF4 with moderate FPS.

    I've been searching around and here's what I found.
    Samsung 7 Series Chronos.
    Retails on Ebay for 1199$. Samsung ATIV Book 8 15.6" TouchScreen Laptop 8GB Memory 1TB Hard Drive NP880Z5E-X01UB - Best Buy

    3rd Gen Intel® Core™ i7-3635QM processor
    Features a 6MB L3 cache and 2.4GHz processor speed.
    Intel® Core™ i7 processor

    8GB DDR3 memory

    15.6" LED high-definition widescreen 10-finger-sensing touch screen
    With 300 cd/m² SuperBright technology, 1920 x 1080 resolution and a gloss finish offers easy navigation and delivers intense detail and clarity.

    1TB Serial ATA II hard drive (5400 rpm)

    AMD Radeon HD 8770M graphics
    Feature 1GB video memory for lush images with vivid detail. HDMI output offers flexible connectivity options.

    I could probably find it on Ebay for 700-750$, but if you guys could give me advice on how good the specs are.

    Though I just found that real quick... you need at least 4GB of RAM and a 3GHz processor for BF4 that might not be enough to max out but I haven't seen the spec requirements so it might do the job.

    Shitty thing about laptops is that the parts cost so much more than they really should. So, for what you pay $1200 for, you get a mobile $400-$500 machine. It's kind of a shit show really. If you are on a budget and want to play games like BF4, just get a desktop. That's really the bottom line.


    If you absolutely MUST have a laptop, then please do not buy it from a place like BestBuy. It's so marked up beyond recognition in stores like that. Awful graphics card for the price if you ask me. I'd look elsewhere.

    Precisely. The very notion of a "gaming laptop" is sort of contradictory in the regard that Notebooks are made for portability, which is an element that's rather irrelevant for gaming. If someone really wants portability AND power, I'd still recommend a desktop build, though a Micro ATX at that. The price/power ratio is so cost-inefficent it's ridiculous, and yet most of the ignorant world is led to believe that Laptops are just as powerful.
    When the earth is changed into a humid dungeon,
    In which Hope like a bat
    Goes beating the walls with her timid wings
    And knocking her head against the rotten ceiling;
    When the rain stretching out its endless train
    Imitates the bars of a vast prison
    And a silent horde of loathsome spiders
    Comes to spin their webs in the depths of our brains,
    All at once the bells leap with rage
    And hurl a frightful roar at heaven,
    Even as wandering spirits with no country
    Burst into a stubborn, whimpering cry.
    — And without drums or music, long hearses
    Pass by slowly in my soul; Hope, vanquished,
    Weeps, and atrocious, despotic Anguish
    On my bowed skull plants her black flag.

    The reason I can't build my own desktop is because I'm going to be living on campus next semester and I'll need the laptop for other tasks also besides gaming.

    Don't bother building a gaming laptop, it's not worth it. You could get a desktop build for the same price and it'd run much, much smoother. Laptops are not made for gaming. If you're gonna use a laptop to take notes just get a cheap, light one for ~$100-200 and spend the rest of your budget building a decent desktop.
