New laptop - Pesonal Gaming

A few months ago I was stupid and spilled water onto my laptop. Its got lost by the post office so I can't even try to send it in for repairs anymore, meaning I need a new one.

I've been looking around for one but haven't really decided on one yet. I usually use newegg.com but the laptop that I used to have is no longer sold much to my dismay. I usually buy my laptops so that they can play games even though a desktop is better for this I go to college so bring a Desktop back and forth is such a bother.

I usually look for an i7 or i5 or a AMD quad core with a screen size of no more than 15.6in. I had one that was around 17 in but it weighed too much to lug around school all the time. Price its too big of a deal but obviously cheaper and great is better for a student.

Anyone have any opinions on which one to get for gaming? i7 over i5 probably but what about i7 over AMD quad-core?

  13. You are to worried about the CPU, worry more about the RAM and the video card.

  18. My laptop screen broke two weeks ago so I need a new one as well! What is your budget?

    I'm looking for a laptop of about 600 euros, I kinda like the ACER ASPIRE 5742G-454G75MN laptop. It's got 750GB hard disk space, an i5 and I think the NVIDIA GeForce GT 540 is a pretty good video card, isn't it?

  19. the more important question actually is ...how much money are you willing to spend.
    and i agree with BigMike...GPU is more important.(i think Nvidea has the upper hand again)

  31. I would still advise desktops over any laptop, as Bulldozer (true AMD 8 core) is coming out soon, but if not look into the MSI g76 or any of the asus republic of gamers ones!

  33. totally depends on expenses. The differences in power really aren't all that large. It's up to you whether or not that small bit of power is justifies the cost

  34. Whatever is cheapest bro. Usually AMD is the cheapest, but Intel has the laptop market pretty much cornered. You might find a better deal on an Intel laptop simply because there are so many of them.

  35. I bought myself a netbook for when I head into uni, it's smaller so it fits in my bag fine and lasts around 9 hours on max performance, can't really play games on it though.
