I'm going to college after this summer and I need to get a laptop. However, I love pc games and so I'd like to get a laptop that plays games very well (hopefully run BF:2 on high). I was wondering if anybody had suggestions for this type of laptop. Thanks.
I have a Dell E1505, fully loaded with everything except the upgraded hard drive size (80GB worked for me just fine) and I can play Oblivion on Medium and every other game (with the exception of just a few) on high graphics settings. Brand new a laptop like that runs about $1200, but I spent some time since I wasn't in a hurry and just trolled the refurbs they had up until I found what I wanted and ended up saving about $400 this way.
I wouldn't buy a Laptop for gaming.
I would buy a very small laptop where I can make my homeworks and then buy a BIG desk computer where I can play my games!
I agree with pll. I'd stick to a nice desktop PC for all your gaming needs. Buy a cheap/used/bad laptop to bring to class. Also would eliminate the risk of your high-powered laptop of getting dropped or stolen.
Agreed, Laptops suk for games. If you MUST use one, the you can't beat Alienware. They are the only laptops that I would even consider for games.
Don't forget to get laptop cooler pad so when you crank up the CPU you'll have enough cooling capacity to prevent your lappy from being fried!
