I'm looking to buy a solid laptop for gaming and I wanted some opinions or suggestions on this one I found.


I'll be upgrading the graphics card to a 7690m, not the 7470 in the link. I have a coupon code that drops it to just over $900 after tax. It's right in the price range I'm looking at and I'm wondering what other people, who may know more about computers, think of it. If you know of any other laptops that would be better for a similar price, that would be great. I plan on playing Guild Wars 2, Diablo 3, Battlefield 3, among other games. It doesn't have to play anything on max specs, but I want a laptop that plays them well in that price range.

Thanks for the help!

for me personally, the screen is too small, the hardrive is small and slow, and the gpu is weak.

However, for that price and for what you want, thats not too bad. Im not sure what HP offers in this line but I would consider a nicer gpu.

If your interested here is a nice review of the 7690. Definitely enough to get the job done, but its already pretty dated, and not future-proof at all, which is a big thing for me when I upgrade my laptops.
