My laptop is on its last legs, and may need to be replaced before the year is out. So I was thinking, since I would prefer to play games like Far Cry 3, Bioshock Infinite, & Max Payne 3 with a mouse & keyboard rather than a controller, why not kill two birds with one stone?
I've been out of the PC gaming scene for quite a while, so I'd appreciate any insight as to whether or not a laptop capable of playing modern FPS & RTS games (in 1080p at 60fps on "high" with a 17" screen) can be had for $500/£325. I may be willing to pay a bit more, but I'd prefer to pay less.
Is that price point totally unreasonable for the specs I laid out? I'm not looking to run games on Ultra at max resolution or anything, just something that will look slightly better than PS3, but run more smoothly, mainly.
And yes, it does have to be a laptop, as I move around too much for a full on PC to be practical.
Thanks in advance to anyone that can help.
