1. I'm going to college
2. I'd like to game a bit
Those are basically the two things I have to say. Point number 1 REALLY doesn't matter, but I'm just saying that so no one suggests a 25 kilogram gaming laptop. (I really never understood the point of laptops "specialized" for college.)
I'm looking for a mid/high end gaming laptop. I say gaming, as in, the purpose is for gaming. I know there are 1,000 dollar laptops around, but those are a bit crazy. I think 800 would be a bit too much for a laptop. I hope there is something nice in the 500-700 dollar range I can purchase.
Is that realistic?
I'd like to play most games up to the 2014 range without problem. I don't need ultra-high-HD graphics, if I can do well with medium on everything, I'm perfectly content. The laptop right now i'm using- can't even play Arma on the lowest settings possible. I think.....? That's just how it feels, anyways.
For instance, any laptop that can handle Bioshock: Infinite on normal/high or above is basically good?
Just to be sure that I'm not completely miscalculating everything, such as expectations for games, here is my current laptop. It basically can't play anything on medium without going to 20 FPS during fights.
64x, windows 8, AMD A8-3500M APU with Radeon HD, 1.5 Ghz (quad core)
GPU: AMD radeon 6620G
So it doesn't work so well for newer games. In my opinion. For instance I generally can't mod skyrim the way I would REALLY want, with the better graphics and all.
Does anyone have a price range, or suggestion of types I can browse?
