Stuck between two laptops

Postby G-Force on Mon Dec 03, 2012 11:13 pm

Hey guys, been a long while since I've posted here! :o

Wanting a laptop for ~500£ that will be able to play recent games on med-high settings if possible, stuck between these two:

Samsung 355V5C:

AMD A10 4600m Quad Core processor (2.3GHz)
8GB RAM
AMD Radeon 7670m GPU

http://www.laptopsdirect.co.uk/Samsung_ ... ersion.asp


Acer Aspire Timeline Ultra M3:

Intel Core i3-2377M Dual Core Processor (1.4GHz)
10GB Ram
GeForce 640m 1GB GPU

http://www.saveonlaptops.co.uk/Acer_Asp ... 01830.html

Wondering what is the better laptop of the two for gaming? Looking to play games like Counter-Strike: GO for example.

Thanks :)

Do you have to buy a laptop? Because for that money you can get decent desktop.

This helps me too, my computer room will become my new childs room soon so was thinking about going for a laptop!

The samsung looks quite good. Anyone else found a decent spec laptop around the £500 mark?

I usualy use Notebook check for reviews on laptops. They give a really detailed breakdown of laptops including some benchmarks.

The Acer review you listed is for the i7 version which is £700 odd

Yes they never reviewed the i3 version however the notebook chassis and screen is pretty much the same so you can read up on build quality etc.

I was really hoping this was a thread about you actually physically stuck between 2 laptops with some sort of superglue or something.

Samsung.
But I'm feeling good, And if you don't exist, you're still one illusion that I can't resist
