Actually, I think you should get a laptop with an AMD APU in it. It is substantially better than anything Intel has to offer. Try to find one with an A10 4600M processor.

Laptops usually don't have good processing power because processing power eats up the battery. I think any laptop with a Haswell cpu and HD 5000 graphics will suit your needs.


How does the HD 5000 stack up against AMD's APU? It was my understanding that traditonally the AMD APUs were superior to the HD line.

Do you think that this one should be okay?

I was gonna get this:

http://www.very.co.uk/hp-envy-m6-1302sa-amd-a10-processor-4gb-ram-750gb-hard-drive-156-inch-laptop-with-7670m-2gb-amd-dedicated-graphics-sparkling-black/1280294449.prd?sort=price,0

Got the AMD A10 4600M processor, Radeon HD 8650G graphics, and 750GB hard drive, but the RAM is 4GB. Is that too low, or should that be okay?

If it is, this is gonna be my future laptop as soon as I get the rest of the money (or work out a deal with my parents).

It's really not THAT bad, but it's not going to be great. Look for the lowest settings possible in games.

you shouldnt worry about it having only 4gb of ram because the gpu is not very good tbh so it wouldnt make much of a difference if it had 8gb of ram.

A10-4600M is an APU, which means it acts as a CPU+GPU. Just this APU by itself with 4gb of ram is enough to satisfy your needs. The laptop you linked also has a discrete GPU, the 7660m, which will work in tandem with the GPU on the APU and give you boosted performance. Or at least that is the principle. In reality Dual-Graphics is still ineffective due to it being relatively new, so the real-life performance is about equal to the performance you get using only 1 GPU. So I would get a laptop with just the A10-4600M APU and no discrete graphics.
