    Slaying fallen on a budget - Student laptop

    2. EDIT: Thanks alot Tilitoon, aerial and beltt! I ended up with the K53SV i7.



    EDIT:
    Holy motherload of information.
    Okay, I think I have it down to these options.
    Cheapest on the top. From 862$-1100$. If the bottom laptops really are worth it compared to the rest that is no problem.

    Intel Core i5 2450M 2.50GHz
    Nvidia GeForce 610M 1GB

    Researched some more and figured that 1000$ seems unlikely.
    What do you guys think about Asus U46S.

    Intel Core i5-2410M CPU - 2.30 GHz – 3 MB L3 cache

    Intel HM65 (Cougar Point)

    1 x 4092 MB DDR3 SDRAM – PC3-10600 – Kingston ASU1333S9-4G-ECEWG

    Intel HD Graphics 3000 (Sandy Bridge GT2)
    nVidia GeForce GT540M – 1 GB
    500 GB - 7200 RPM - Seagate ST9500423AS

    Also took a look at Asus X53SV and Asus A53SV
    14' LED – 1366 x 768 pixels (WXGA)

    Those all seem to be good laptops spec-wise. You shouldn't have any problems running DIII on any of them. Based on your selection it seems you have quite a good understanding of the type of computer that would be good for your needs. I would need to check out reviews for these particular models to tell you if there are specific features that would be worth mentioning, otherwise I'm not sure what else to tell you because like I said they will all run DIII at least on medium. You would have to figure out how much you are willing to spend and see the one that offers the performance you want to the right price. Since I have no idea that the prices are in Denmark it'll be hard to say which one had the best performance / price ratio. Obviously the Asus A53SV with the i7 will perform better with the Adobe product line.

    Good to hear! I couldn't find most of the graphic cards on the "supported list" so was a bit unsure. I'm going to try and find a shop where I can see them and feel them. Thanks for the reply!

    Re: Slaying fallen on a budget - Student laptop

    A supermarket just put a Acer Aspire AS5750G at a very reasonable price. I did find another AS5750G with a i7 processor. What I'm asking is, how much of a difference is there between this:
    Intel Core i7 2670QM 2,2 GHz
    NVIDIA GeForce GT 630M
    And the cheaper one;
    i5 2450M
    Nvidia GeForce 610M 1GB?

    Prices are 880$ and 1100$

    EDIT: Seems that I cant find the Asus X53SV and A53S
    in shops. The U46S looks really tempting, only thing is the 14' screen.

    I live in Denmark too.... Prices suck here...... This just a bit above the 1200 USD or 7000 DKR you mention but it will run D3 on highest settings i think.

    Only prob it that its 17.3 inch which might be a bit heavy to carry around...

    This is 930 USD or 5300 DKR and should also run D3 on medium-highish. Only problem is the Optimus technology that has been causing problems for some people during the Beta..

    Check out some of the other laptops on Medions website. They have lots of different models and prices are on the low end compared to Asus, MSI etc.

    Regards Beltt

    The Toshiba is unfortunately a bit too big for me. How does the Medion compare to this Acer: http://webshop.coop.dk/vare/acer-asp.../4717276877750
    Graphic card is better, isnt it? (Not very good with processors and graphic cards)

    You don't want i7 for d3, diablo can't even use 4 cores let alone hyper threading.
    I'd focus on laptop with as good gpu as possible, as it is weakest part of them, while cpus being quite decent.
    SSD drive would be really nice touch, even a small one ~40gb, if you use proper release of windows, that doesn't eat up lots of resources.

    I'm sorry, not quite sure I'm following you. Are you saying I should go with the best of the 2 i5? The first one that is?
