Need new laptop

Post by jerom »

I'm going to study soon, and I kinda need a laptop for that. I'd like to ask you guys if you have any suggestions. It doesn't have to be too cheap, but it can't be really expensive either (i dont really know, parents are paying :P).

Main requirement is that it can run games like starcraft. If anyone has any good suggestions I'd be very happy to hear them :D

Just go for a normal laptop, and use the extra $$ for a gaming desktop. Even a 1.2k Alienware laptop suck at games

The problem is i guess that parents would not give the excess $$ to spend on a gaming desktop :P

What games do u want to play? Old games like AOE3 and SC2?

was going to say a Toshiba Portege but they twice your budget :P

I think you need 850+ euro for a gaming laptop , then maybe the MSI GE60 ??  Looks like a brick tho.

Buschi already helped me and a found a pretty decent one (my standards for computers are not as high as yours) that's able to run most games and is pretty light weight. But thanks for the help anyways.
