Any good laptops at best buy?

#1GravyButtPosted 12/27/2013 7:27:46 AM
I have around $600 worth of gift cards for best buy and was wondering if someone could recommend me a laptop on their website for gaming? It doesnt need to be awesome, but maybe play bf4 on medium levels? Im ok with 720p or 1080p to be honest. I really dont know much about laptops though. I have a good gaming desktop, but sadly I cant lug that around for business. Thanks guys!!

Anything there is going to be overpriced.

I don't know if you saw the $600 giftcard bit...plus the prices aren't relatively bad, but he's right in the sense of you definitely get a discount if you're willing to build your own parts

I thought I chose very easy, not brand new to the game. - CheesyPhil

Is ~$600 your budget then? Or can you add money to the gift cards.

TBH I'd rather pay a little bit more at Best Buy than tackle building my own laptop.

The one on the bottom has a better video card. Everything else that is selling for a bit over 1000 is not worth it.

Thank you sir. I know 0 about laptop video cards. Is that second laptop capable? Thanks again!

I would recommend the second one. The 770M has 3gb of vram, so that will help out in it's aging process.
