yo tech noob here, first of all i can swear I remember reading a GAMING LAPTOP thread here somewhere but cant find it, so if a mod knows, please merge.

now secondly, i am in the market for a laptop. I want the cheapest gaming laptop that can run witcher 2. and i dont need "omgz wtfbbqsaax" ultra smooth gfx settings. Have gamed on consoles all my life so med settings would do fine. what price range am i looking at here ? please list the alternatives if possible, i have no preferance or bias for any particular company.

thanks.

Yeah better wait. And keep in mind about heating. Laptops reach crazy temperatures even while playing games on low settings. My laptop plays most games at high-very high settings, but gets very hot even after I undervolted the processor and started using laptop cooler. Though I heard that HP Envy series gives good gaming performance at lower temperatures.
So, better wait for next generation laptops, as they will have much efficient processors with even better manufacturing process, that will give good performance and at lower temperatures.

Still, I suggest if you can buy a good desktop, that would cost much less and provide you much better gaming experience than a laptop. I am speaking this from a personal experience after using a cheap gaming laptop for 2.5 years.

Wait for a month when IVY Bridge comes ..
It has shown a very good boost over Sandy bridge motherboards for laptops ..

And 50k is a good budget .. I had bought HP dv6 for that budget 6 months back

@Ambar HP Envy starts from 70k :( .. Those are the finest sheet of laptops I have ever seen .. Looks awesome plus high performance :O

Yeah, costly but well worth the money. I had got DV6 laptop for 45k 2.5 years back, it was top of the line then, but now its nothing. Envy series is good.

June at the most :(
The graphics boost is 30-50% and processing boost is 5-15% .. All for the same price as Sandy bridge proxxy
It just can't be missed
If I were you I would have surely waited

You are buying the laptop at the wrong time ..
At this time of the year new models launch

Best time to buy is during diwali .. I got goodies worth 2k free :P

And dude avoid Dell .. My dad's inspiron is facing loads of problems .. plus point of inspiron is that it has a good battery life
Go with hp or Asus

ah just got through this Thread, hmm i guess a decent laptop will cost you around 50k, but i would suggest you are better off buying a Portable gaming device and a Medium spec laptop for daily use.

If U had an option of desktop why were you buying a laptop lol ..
Desktop + Portable gaming device yeah even that's an option
But wouldn't 40k be low for a gaming desktop

As I stay in a hostel I had no option but to buy a laptop :P

Its good enough. A 40k desktop can be two times more better than your laptop for gaming. Mine is 45k (38k + Windows 7), and I can max out almost all games on 1080p at 40-50 fps, most run at 60 fps. Only Crysis 2 on DX 11, HD Texture pack and Ultra settings drops to 25-30 fps in heavy action. I have to play it on 1366x768 to get 40+ fps.
Skyrim on Ultra rarely drops below 45 fps, same with Witcher 2. AC Revelations gives 60 fps at 1080p.

And yeah, hostel/shared accommodation was the reason why I got a laptop instead of a desktop 3 years back. People at shared places will use your desktop when you are not there, and n00bs have no idea how to handle a desktop properly. Laptop means you can just shut it off and lock it up or carry with you when you are returning home for a vacation etc, without worrying about your room mates making it go through hell.

I dont share my accomodations with any one, but then again you can get a desktop and put it under password protection and deny additional user access :console:

That would mean I will directly let them know that I wont trust them, and it will not be a good thing.
