Which is the best graphics platform for gaming?

by Mmryanthny / September 21, 2012 5:34 AM PDT

The Toshiba S875-S7242 uses a Mobile Intel HD, is it good? How does it compare with the Nvidia? I will need it for gaming. Thank you.

Bad news.

So far, any onboard graphics solution like this Intel has had gamers screaming. Your gamer will be very upset.

And certainly the gamers know to avoid laptops entirely due to the costs and shorter life spans.

-> Today it's a crap shoot with your PC, and consoles. But most of the decision is made for you by the GAME in question and how much you can afford to rent your few year machine.

Thanks for the help. I need to use a laptop, I know PC's are better, I've never heard of the Mobile Intel. I've always heard that Nvidia is the best. Since I need to choose between evils which is better? If you know. Thank you again.

It's sticky is at

I recently added a link to the Amazon best seller list and my advice is to look what's there that is a gamer's laptop.

The first one I see is this one ->

This is a fine DESKTOP replacement but students tend to break 17 inch units fast. Too big.

A link on that page led me to which is very interesting. Lower price, and for young folk the 1080 display will be fine.

As you want an laptop with best graphic platform.As toshiba S875-S7242 is not good for hardcore gaming experience.As if u look at the specs the graphic card is integrated not dedicated , its intel not Nvidia.This all things indicates only one thing it is not made for Powerful gaming experince.

PC's have no hardware limits, there is so many variations unlike PS3 and Xbox. If you have the money for a good PC, the pc is king. Otherwise, the Xbox slim is better, then a PS3, then a Xbox phat!

I would find a laptop with the best graphic platforms to start. Research will take time, but it will be worth it.
