Upgrade my thing: Needs new laptop!



  • Alrighty you lovely nerds and nerdesses.

    I need a new Laptop. I have estimated 800 Euros. It needs be to up to date, as I dont plan on changing it again too soon.

    It needs to be Windows.

    It needs to be able to run stuff like D3, on High settings if possible.

    I am gonna use it for class, so nothing too huge or heavy. But the above is more important.
    Has to be able to keep power for as long as possible, but then again, the above is more important.

    Any advice on the above mentioned would be HIGHLY welcome.

    If you are looking to play new games on a laptop, you want a gaming laptop. The capabilities of a gaming rig will cover every other need of a laptop. You may need to spend more than 800 euros, but shop around. I may be mistaken. Also, a gaming laptop is NOT going to have very good battery life. There are ways around it, but typically that is the norm. Also, a gaming laptop is going to be big and heavy.

    These are min/recommended requirements. It really doesn't seem like much, except the video card. I think you may not want to base a new laptop for school on being able to play Diablo 3 at it's highest settings.
