Cheap laptop for gaming. (Not gaming laptop)

Specs: Windows 7
Hi everyone. I was wondering if there is a laptop or netbook anywhere online that is under $400. I just want it to be able to run vampire the masquerade redemption, and a few other things like diablo and fallout 1 and 2. Thanks!

Netbooks aren't for gaming, neither are sub-$400 laptops.

i purposely registered to say that jam and toxict51 could have been a little more helpful AND actually read the first post.

beefdawg, i just quickly looked up the specs of those games. i'm 99% positive that any netbook or cheap laptop you buy will be able to run those games fine. the only thing you have to find out is if they run ok on newer OS's (winxp and above).

check and go to their netbook subsection. they normally list deals on netbooks or whatever.

good luck

There are gaming laptops out there but their not under $400. But for those games you mentioned you could easily get a Basic laptop with an HD graphics card that will run anything old and some new games at low frame rates.


What your looking for is a cheap HD graphics card like:

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator HD
ATI Radeon HD 4200

They are not the greatest at gaming but will do old games nicely since HD graphics need alot of shared memory. Some of those cards can go as high as 2gigs of shared memory.
