  3. Quick question from Nub
2 years ago#1
I'm trying to get a solid laptop that can run most games well at an affordable price. I'm not trying to run games like Crysis or Battlefield or anything like that lol. I just want to be able to play most games on Steam well and use emulators; things like that.

Here's the link to the two laptops I was interested in:

http://www.dell.com/us/p/inspiron-14z-5423/pd?oc=fncwt36w7&model_id=inspiron-14z-5423

Would they run your average game well, or run them poorly? Which of those two would you guys choose if you were in my situation?

Any advice or recommendations is more than welcome.

I was leaning towards the Dell because I heard the I5 processor would run games better and I've been trying to avoid Windows 8 if I can.

I would get a desktop, but I'll be dorming at school in a few months =/

Don't, Windows 8 is a solid improvement.

Yeah, besides having a smaller footprint, faster boot time, improved task manager, and snappier UI.
