Hello there! I am looking for a new laptop. The most important part is to be able to play Battlefield 4 on medium graphics. If my price range does not allow this please tell me. This laptop will be bought inside the USA.



My budget for the new computer is:  $800 (If need be I can go higher)

What are the primary uses for this computer (IE: mail, web browsing, programming, games, etc)? Moderate end gaming 

What software do you intend on using on the computer? Media Players, Voice Chat Porgrams and Games

Do you play games? If so, what type of games? Need to be able to play Battlefield 4 on medium graphics (30 fps)

Do you tend to have a lot of programs running at the same time, or do you close every program when you are done using it? Usually will have chrome, skype and a game open. Maybe another program or document

Do you store a lot of pictures or music on the computer? A 500 gigabyte HDD will suit me fine

I'm no expert on laptops. I bought mine from http://www.cyberpowerpc.com/category/notebook/ but the lowest price I saw was just under $1000. 

I've been very happy with mine, if you want you can check them out.

Hello and welcome to the forums! $800 is a bit of a tough budget for a gaming notebook, although i have managed to find on Newegg a MSI GP60 Leopard which contains a GT840M from Nvidia, and it can certainly play BF4 at medium settings with resolutions lower then 1080p. The laptop has 8GB of ram which will more then sufficient for BF4 with other programs running along side and there is a 750GB hard drive which surpasses the criteria of having a 500GB hard drive.

System1: CPU- Intel Core i7-5820K @ 4.4GHz, CPU Cooler- Noctua NH-D14, RAM- G.Skill Ripjaws 16GB Kit(4Gx4) DDR3 2133MHz, SSD/HDD- Samsung 850 EVO 250GB/Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB/Seagate Barracuada 3TB, GPU- 2x EVGA GTX980 Superclocked @1360/MHz1900MHz, Motherboard- Asus X99 Deluxe, Case- Custom Mac G5, PSU- EVGA P2-1000W, Soundcard- Realtek High Definition Audio, OS- Windows 10 Pro 64-Bit
