I'm thinking about selling my desktop PC and invest into a laptop.
Sadly, my financial background is not too bright, on the contrary, it's quite limited, so I'm looking for something around 400-450 dollars.
My gaming is almost only QL, so it's an absolute necessity to run the game stable 125 fps on any map with 8-16 players, under Win7 x64.
I prefer stability and reliability over performance, so I'm mainly into Lenovo, Toshiba and Fujitsu models.
What I found so far is something like this;
Lenovo IdeaPad G585
AMD E Series E1-1200 @ 1.4 GHz, dual core
8GB DDR3 1066MHz
ATI Radeon HD6370 1 GB
QL is more CPU-demanding, than VGA-dependent, so the CPU concerns me a bit.
Fujitsu Lifebook A512
Intel® Pentium Dual Core™ B960
Intel® HD Graphics 2000
The CPU is much better, but this time, that Intel HD 2000 is the source of unsureness. : /
Besides QL, only flawless 1080p Blu-ray playback is a must, but this is something that I shouldn't be too concerned about; both AMD APUs and Intel HDs are fine with that. But QL is another story.
Edit: Meanwhile, I looked a bit further and found 2 other machines, but these are used.
3) Acer 9920
C2 T7500 2.2 GHz

LiteOn DS8A1P DVD W/RW DL
Intel 4965AGN Wi-fi
illuminated, full keyboard
pretty nice condition
My friend selling it for 430 dollars. Is it worth it? What do you guys think?
4) HP nx9420
C2 T5500 1.66 GHz
4 GB DDR2
Mobility Radeon X1600 256 MB
300 GB HDD
DVD W/RW DL
battery 1,5-2 hours
Visually it's not in mint condition, but it's not too bad. The price is 235 dollars.
