Laptop for school, looking to run some games

Hope you realize that with laptops, if you can't clean the fans out easily, you will have to take it completely apart to get that dust out. If you don't get it out, playing **** that is super graphics intense (BF3 for me) will cause it to overheat and shut off. Happens to my laptop with 6650m around one hour of playing BF3.

I just got that one a few weeks ago and I'm really happy with it so far. I upgraded it to 8GB RAM and it runs most games out there at a decent framerate.

Wait for Trinity and get the best APU they got.


That should run skyrim on medium at 30 FPS or higher. I get 20+ at medium on my A6 and the A10 coming out is going to be about 50% better. Will still probably look/play better than a console.

I'm going to need a laptop for school in the fall, and i want to be able to run some games on it. I'm mainly looking to run skyrim on max settings (don't how realistic that is for a laptop) but as long as it looks better than on PS3,


Skyrim on minimum still looks better then the PS3
