Budget: $800, prefer to go under $600 if possible (though I doubt it is and I understand that) Windows 8 is fine, especially if the laptop has a touch screen (I have an extra key for Windows 7 anyway) I almost never use optical drives, so that's not a concern
My current laptop is almost 4 years old. It still runs fine but I am thinking of replacing it since it is damaged and I'll need a laptop for work. I'll be living in a smaller place with roommates, so I doubt I'll have the room for my current gaming desktop. I won't play games that are too demanding since I play a lot of games that are a few years old.
I'm not sure if I'll actually replace my laptop and if I do, if I'll get one with a dedicated video card. But if I do, is this a decent cheap choice? Could I go cheaper? Does this laptop fail at being a decent laptop?
8750m isn't good enough to be called a gaming laptop IMO. Though honestly all the AMD laptop GPU's don't seem worth it except the highest series (which are actually decent bang for buck in laptop terms). I haven't followed closely, but I imagine you might be able to get something with a 760m for barely more than what you have. --- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2wdw64aHYXA
How soon do you need it? I'm actually interested in a maxwell/Haswell laptop and hopefully the 800m series will launch soonish. --- Every time I try to go where I really wanna be it's already where I am, 'cuz I'm already there XBL, PSN, Steam, Origin, BSN, GFAQs, MC: PhilOnDez
