Which Laptop should I buy for these games?

Fujitsu Lifebook a6110

Specs: Microsoft¢ç Windows Vista¢â Home Premium, 1.5 GHz / 3317 MB
I am thinking of buying a laptop that does not lag in
Hardcore games.
CPU/Video/Graphic/Ram etc would be most important.

A laptop with a decent pricing .. I am looking for the one that can smoothly run for
Minimum: Starcraft II (Beta Current @ Ultra Graphics)

Well I also want to play MW2 or L4D2 on the laptop. What would be the average pricing of this gaming type of laptops?
Would Alienware M11x run smoothly for L4D2 etc at least?
Recommend any other laptops? ( I am not sure if Alienware would be a best choice of laptop to choose from )

Try asus G51VX-RX05. it loaded with nvidia geforce gtx 260m. xpect to play modern games in high settings. It's under $1000.

So you think it will be better than Alienware M11x somewhat upgraded to match $1000 like Asus (MRSP)?

Intel Core i7 720QM Quad Core

Mobile ATI Radeon 5730

4gb DDR3 1066

320gb 7200 RPM Hard Drive

16 inch LED Wide Screen

1 USB 3.0 connection


SRS Sound

Wirless N

You really can't beat this price for what you are getting, the only drawback is that it comes with a DVD-RW drive instead of a Blu-Ray drive, but other then that, it's basicly a moderately priced higher end gaming system for a low mid-range price. Those Intel Core i7 mobile cpu's are beast. The ATI Radeon 5730 is a pretty decent card it ranks up there with the ATI Radeon 5670 desktop versions in performance, but the really cool feature is the USB 3.0 port this laptop has, which is brand spanking new technology.

It's amazing what you can get in a laptop now of days for the price.

So will this run Modern Warfare 2 Smoothly with no FPS lag?

Yes. One reviewer said It ran Crysis on high setting above 30fps and Crysis is the most hardware demanding game out on the market. So it will def run Modern Warefare 2 fine. As for future games, it shouldn't have any problem with lag seeing as if it can run Crysis on high settings above 30fps it will run any other game that comes out fine for a while to come.

There is a reason why it's cheaper...

ASUS N61JQ-X1 is a lot better overall.

This pc comes with 4gb of DDR2 instead of the 4gb DDR3 that the ASUS N61JQ-X1 comes with.

The Core 2 Duo T9550 is the older gen intel CPU and is Dual Core while the Core i7 720QM is the lastest intel CPU that's Quad Core.

The Nvidia G105M IGP is a budget GPU that is def not for any type of real gaming. While the ATI Radeon 5730 is a higher mid range GPU that is for real gaming.

No USB 3.0 support. While the ASUS N61JQ-X1 comes with USB 3.0 support.

If you want a decent gaming laptop, then you will have to spend at least a grand or more. Anything less you are setting yourself up for big dissapointment in regards to gaming.

ASUS is really coming out with good netbooks and notebooks for the price, that are giving pc companies like Dell, HP, Acer and Lenovo a real run for their money in the mobile category.

Above 30fps, high settings? I don't believe that. Hd 5670 is a good gaming but it's not capable to run crysis @ high settings smooth.

The system Cobra_R mention is a good system but u don't need core i7 to play recent games, all u need is decent cpu eg.c2d etc. and good gaming card.

"Above 30fps, high settings? I don't believe that. Hd 5670 is a good gaming but it's not capable to run crysis @ high settings smooth."

I think you maybe forgetting that these high settings are displayed on a resolution size format of 1366 by 768, which would be very capable of running Crysis on high settings at 30fps for a card like that to do along with a cpu like the Core i7 that is capable of handling that workload.

"The system Cobra_R mention is a good system but u don't need core i7 to play recent games, all u need is decent cpu eg.c2d etc. and good gaming card."

Sure you don't need to get a Core i7 mobile notebook to play recent games, but if you can get a Core i7 mobile cpu notebook which cost around the same price as many high performance Core 2 Duo mobile cpu notebooks on the market right now then why would you want to go with a slower performing, less core, less power efficient, older gen mobile cpu for around the same price that you can get a Core i7 mobile cpu notebook for? Not to mention If you are looking at the longevity of the notebook for gaming Quad Core capable cpu's are the way to go, because more and more games are becoming Quad Core capable. The Core i7 mobile is not only Quad Core, but is better then any Core 2 Duo mobile on the market in performance. Even when you are playing games that aren't Quad Core capable, the Core i7's have a Turbo Boost feature that will automaticly shut down the cores not being needed and overclock a core that is being used which comes extremely handy for single threaded games. The Core I7 720QM for example will go from 1.6ghz to 2.8ghz in Turbo Mode.

Not to mention with the ASUS N61JQ-X1 you are getting a lot of new technolgies like DDR3, DX11 support and USB 3.0 support for 1,000 dollars. Where has many Core 2 Duo Mobile platforms you are still getting old technologies that come with DDR2, DX10 and USB 2.0 support for around the same price as the ASUS N61JQ-X1. I mean, if you are going to spend money on a gaming machine then you miles get one with the lastest technology standards and spend a grand or more on one, or else like I said you will be setting yourself up for a big dissapointment in the near future.

I agree with u Cobra_R but the OP doesn't have enough $ to buy your system, that's why he mention cheap system. I think the system i mentioned in response #1 still good for him and it's under $1000.

Yeah, but if he is looking to buy a laptop for games like Modern Warefare 2 and wants it to be able to play games in the future decently like he wants, then he really has no real option but to get a laptop that cost over a grand or more or save up more money. See what a lot of avg pc users dont' really understand is that buying a gaming laptop is a lot more then buying a gaming desktop. You can't get the same stuff in a 700 dollar custom made desktop like you can in a laptop. Thoses features will end up costing you in a laptop at least 400 or 500 dollars more and that's what a lot of avg computer users that want a gaming laptop dont' really understand.

Sorry. Thanks for making me feel retarded.

1. Actually http://www.trigem.co.kr/tgproduct/n... is 1,848,000 won, which is around $1700 in US Currency or higher.
(sorry for saying it is cheaper)
2. I currently own a laptop, which I bought it for around 1000 dollars, then full upgraded so which was about 1200 dollars back then.

I know all gaming laptops are way more expensive than netbooks. (also home usage etc. are cheaper than gaming)

I am not a dumbass who looks for how much size the computer it takes (OMG it has 1TB on a laptop, it must be a best laptop in the world), and the external thin looks.

I just wanted to find a best suggestions/deals for gaming laptop around $1000 dollars, and I am just reconfirming, so I don't regret what I buy. I also don't really like to rush, unless it is 100% necessary.

Sorry for all grammar errors etc. I was in hurry.

Don't take it the wrong way but that statement above i said wasn't implying you, but just what the avg pc user does. I've seen it time and time again when i used to work for retail electronic stores where people come in and say i want a fast computer that can play the most recent games etc and then when i show them the price of the gaming system they want, they suddenly get sticker shock as if they thought they could get a lot of power for 500 or 600 bucks.
