Need a laptop suggestion

#1TowerBooks3192Posted 7/28/2014 8:41:19 AM
I want some suggestions for something very cheap and small that is able to decently play games like Out of the Park Baseball 15 or Football Manager 14 and probably some hex-based wargames and something like distant worlds. Being able to play EUIV and CK2 would be great as well but as much as possible I want the most portable with good battery life.

Or you could do the intelligent thing and get a desktop. Why would anyone want to buy a cheap laptop with the interest in playing videogames on them?

I already got a desktop that is capable o handling my gaming needs and a laptop that could play games with high requirements. I want one that is as small as possible that could play the said games and double as something for Uni.

Integrated graphics, but the price isn't terrible and Asus is typically a good brand.

I can carry a laptop in a backpack or messenger bag. I can't carry my desktop, monitor, speakers, and keyboard in a backpack.
