for your budget, i suggest you check out the SONY VAIO E Series http://wuggee.com/laptop/sony-vaio-e-series-sve1712bcxb.html this machine can definitely play the most demanding games at medium settings.
2.5 GHz Intel Core i5-3210M
6 GB DDR3 1600 RAM
500 GB hard drive
AMD Radeon HD 7650M
I am looking for a laptop under $850 that I can use for general internet browsing/studying.
I would also like to be able to play recent games on at least Medium settings (ex. Far Cry 3, Battlefield 3, etc.)
Currently I am looking at the HP Envy dv6z-7200 and wondered if someone would like to customize it to my needs while keeping it as cheap as possible!
Any suggestions on this laptop or another you think is a better deal would be great, thanks!
