    Default about a decent gaming laptop and my pc video card

    Hey guys I've been kinda wondering how much a decent gaming laptop costs nowadays to run games mid graphics settings and good fps for say a game like warframe?

    Also, I've been using a gtx 550 ti for a while now and i can handle pretty much everything on max but if wanted to stream or record would it be good enough for that? Also, where can i find some good info about setting up for that?

    Thanks.

    A good laptop like you described would set you back about 900 to 1000USD.

    I'm not really home in recording or streaming so I can't really answer that for you.

    Still that much? Dang, thought they'd be cheaper by now =/.

    It's alright I appreciate that you answered though.

    You could probably drop to about 600USD but my own laptop (i7 2620qm, gt555m, 6gb ddr3, full hd screen) already plays the latest game like utter shit. Tera played at roughly 25 to 40fps between low and medium settings to give an idea.

    Wait a couple months for the new Lenovo Y40 & Y50. Y50 is suppose to start at $999, but Lenovo always starts their laptops at a higher price. After a while they'll host some red flag sells and you'll probably be able to grab one for $750. You could also go on eBay and look for slightly used Lenovo Y500 (650 or 750 SLI) I've seen some go for as low as $600. They'll play pretty much anything you want. My Lenovo Y400 plays Tera @ Max Settings with an average of 35 FPS.
