A compromise and costly compared to desktops. You pay more for less and in the bargain have a shorter lived device.
Back to your selection. No. Gamers are already wanting more for today's games so this is not something you'll set on high settings even today. I'm unsure what made you think that gaming laptops could compete with what you can fit in a desktop or could offer the same performance.
-> BUT you did pick the i5 which gives you some hope of SWITCHABLE GRAPHICS that will allow some normal heat output during normal use.
Lots of hitches.
well i am planning to buy this MSI GX660 gaming laptop with following specifications that are available in india. but as i am new to gaming i don't know for sure that if this is the right choice. also, there are some confusions that are there in the configuration of the system that i wanna get sorted b4 buying it. here are the specifications: PROCESSOR: intel core i5 460M, GRAPHIC CARD: ATI Radeon HD5870 with 1GB DDR5, CHIPSET: Intel PM55, RAM: 4GB DDR3(2GB*2), HARD DISK: 500GB sata@ 5400rpm, LCD: 15.6" HD Glare(1366*768)LED. There are 3 main confusions that i am dealing with right now. FIRST, is there any difference between GDDR5 and DDR5,coz on the website they show as this model has GDDR5 graphic memory but my dealer's configuration states it as DDR5 graphic memory. SECONDLY, the hard disk is running at 5400rpm & as i want to buy this laptop for gaming , does it will effect the gaming performance on a large scale or not as compared to 7200rpm. LASTLY, after checking out all the specifications of the system that i have provided earlier. what do you think of this laptop as a whole,especially in gaming performance. will it be able to run newest games (between 2009-2011) at high setting without any hitch?
