Default Computer help

So ive been on this website a few months now because im looking in getting a new laptop.

Ive looked around at some and also thought about getting a desktop but that wont do, i kind of need a laptop for space and where ill be using it.

Im currently running a acer aspire 5315 and it was good back 4-5 years ago but now its running slow.

Im interested in gaming laptops. I know that desktops run games faster but i need a laptop. I will not be using it for playing games like call of duty or crysis etc. Although i may one day but it is doubtful.

I will however be playing games like Minecraft and strategy games such as total wars civilisation and things like that.

So here is the laptop i am thinking of getting. If you know could you please tell me if you think it will play call of duty and any other fps because if its good enough to play them i might get something like fallout. Thank for taking your time to read this.


HP Pavilion dv-6z

HP DV6 series are a good choice, but you could also consider a mid-range Samsung:

Newegg.com - SAMSUNG R530-11 NoteBook Intel Core i3 350M(2.26GHz) 15.6" 4GB Memory 500GB HDD 5400rpm DVD Super Multi NVIDIA GeForce 310M


also, is needing a laptop over a desktop a space issue or a mobility issue? if it's a space issue you could consider an all in one, such as:

Newegg.com - lenovo IdeaCentre B305(4031-3BU) 21.5" Athlon II X2 235e(2.7GHz) 4GB DDR3 1TB HDD Capacity ATI Radeon 3000 IGP Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit

obviously an all-in-one has a screen size advantage.
