Ok, I have 2 laptops in mind

1. HP Proobook 4530s

2. Acer Aspire 5750

I am not really sure which one I should get, my desktop can't run it on a great frame rate with everything setting on low and resolution set to 800x600, I turn the res. up a notch to 1024x768 and the fps drops by 20 frames and im running an i3 with a cheap ati radeon card( cant remember which model and i cant check right now) with 4gig ram. Help me pleeeeeeease or suggest something better within the budget($800)

I wanna ask too but didn't wanna open another thread.

I currently have a laptop that can play Dota 2 on 24fps (kinda bad but it's playable) and it's broken. I've decided to invest on a desktop

Processor :Intel Core i3 2120 (3.3GHz / 3MB Cache)
Chipset : Intel H61 Express Chipset
Memory : 2GB DDR3 (upgradable to 8GB)
Graphics : Intel HD Graphics

Is this good and can I play games like MW3/BF3/Skyrim? Not necessarily on High quality as I don't really care about those things. Please help me and thanks!

I'll go for the Acer.


With this card - NO!

Save $ for Radeon 6790 or if u are Nvidia fanboy GTX460 ot 550 Ti

BTW: Never buy a ready desktop case! Buy parts separately!

Well i just bought a new laptop and i was watching 3 of em where one was the HP Proobook 4530s. They pretty much told me that thats not a gaming laptop and will start overheating if played constantly. Also that ACER has better graphic card so I'd pick the ACER.
I got i5, 4gb ram and Geforce GT540m and got no problems with dota 2 at all

Since you already have a desktop just upgrade your gpu. I can't choose any from the choices you provided because of the shitty gpu they provide.

#1 nope. mw3,skyrim is too much for that build. it'll get fried.

#1 For real Intel HD Graphics to play SKyrim, MW3 and BF3? Oh my...Just get a AMD Radeon HD 6850/Nvidia GTS 450.
By the way, be ready to pay more for HDD because after the Thailand flood the price hiked about 100%.
