    Yes, the ASUS

    Well I think I'll get that, then. I really appreciate you guys helping me out with this~
    Feel free to continue to comment, I'm going to do a bit more research before I buy.

    Well, you didn't really add it to your OP, rather to your second post :wink.gif:
    And yes, with that you can play skyrim easily. A lot better choice.

    I just edited the link to the OP, I edited the wrong one first.

    i'd get the laptop CodofMC posted, it beats the daylights out of the dell, and the best thing is, IT'S NOT A DELL!

    I'm turning more to it. I still want to know an estimation of the FPS it would get in Skyrim, Minecraft, etc.

    GFX Card is pretty good for a laptop. Compared to desktops, it obviously sucks, but for a laptop, it's good.

    Maybe around 60 FPS on Minecraft with that laptop.

    Skyrim maybe like 55 on medium (don't quote me on that)


    Are you talking about the ASUS?

    Does it absolutely need to be a laptop instead of a desktop?

    Yeah.

    Well sorry to say you won't get 55fps on skyrim at medium settings. Hardly even on low settings.

    What would it take to get over 30 fps? Those specs are really great, I just don't understand video card specs.

    That's really good. So you would recommend that over the Dell, too?

    Mostly just different maker I think, I don't use laptops often so I can't say if Dell and ASUS laptops have any significant differences.

    So is that graphics card good?
    I'll still do more research on the laptop before buying it. Thanks for suggesting it =]

    Oops, fixed my post. I still would choose the ASUS over the Dell. Dell actually owns Alienware so you really aren't getting better quality over the M11x by getting the 15R.

    Well I know Alienware is owned by Dell but it seems like they're made differently.

    - And I know I only mentioned MC in the OP. To add to that, the games I currently try to play: Mabinogi, Vindictus, Skyrim, Minecraft and a few meager ones.

    And hmm, what is the difference between ASUS and dell, besides the specs? Any compatibility or just a different maker?

    Which laptop are you choosing? I wouldn't get the Alienware you posted, the graphics card isn't great and neither is the cpu. If you haven't already, look at the laptop I linked to in this thread. It is only $5 more and has an i7 cpu and a gt 540m. I would guess it would play most games on medium-high settings with 40+ fps. Gaming laptops are very expensive and easily cost $1000+.

    The link I posted wasn't for the Alienware, it was for the first 15R.
    I said I had gotten an Alienware a year before and it's starting to die.

    Dangit. I need to ask again, though, how would the fps be on those games? The processor wouldn't make it better? I just want to order a computer soon, because shipping gets slower as Christmas gets closer.

    Not in laptops they aren't. Laptops only have interchangeable RAM and HDD except for a minute amount that do allow for the processor and graphics card to be changed. In most laptops the processor is soldered onto the motherboard so technically you can still change it, but you risk ruining the laptop in the process.

    Then what's the difference between a dedicated and integrated video card on a laptop?

    You can very very very rarely change anything else than ram and hard drive for laptops. So no, you can't really.
    And it's battlefield 3.

    Dedicated graphics cards are changeable, aren't they?
    And when you say it can't run, what do you mean? What would the fps be around?

    It's possible to fake a cape. Most likely a server admin with a plugin.
