The first laptop on that list has Intel Graphics lol.

Only the first MSI laptop is worth it.

And screen res is 1366X768...Most of these are only 1600X900 res. If I'm going to be buying a 800$ laptop, it better be 1920X1080 and not have an integrated GPU.

It's just a bad list, this single laptop is better then everything on that page:

The more expensive laptops still have integrated graphics, my Msi for example uses an integrated chip to save power when the 780GTX Gpu isn't in use.
Unless you run it 100% by power cable.
A lower end nvidia/Amd, discrete Gpu may get away with it though.

Vegamyster1594d ago

Oh i know that, i too have an MSi but with the GTX 770M.

wow that laptop is a very nice find, i'm still sporting a 2008 gaming pc with only a upgrade decent gpu thanks to the old one crapping out.

However i've been thinking about upgrading and replace my desktop with a laptop since it'd just make my life a lot easier and the reduced heat output would be a godsend.

Personally I'd take a desktop over a laptop anyday for gaming. Laptops generally have only one fan and thus cannot keep up with the building heat. I have friends who fried their gaming laptops that way.

The article does say cheap gaming laptops. Mine has intel integrated graphics and performs relatively well. Nothing mind-blowing and mostly low-to-mid specs on recent games but who the hell games hardcore on a laptop?

Anything less than a 7970m, 680m, 770m, 780m isn't worth paying for in my opinion.
I'd also add that buying any PERFORMANCE laptop with out an MXM GPU is a bit waste of money too. Non MXM GPU means the GPU is soldered on a you can't never upgrade it.

worldwidegaming1594d ago

personally you are always better off with a 760M (yes its just a renamed card.)

megadrivesonic1594d ago

You could build a good gaming rig for $400, At least when it comes to desktops, laptops are a different issue altogether.

microgenius1594d ago

how do you consider a laptop with intel graphix a gaming laptop?
