Are there any good yet affordable laptops that work well with games?

My friend has one of these.. they're not bad, and much cheaper then some of the other ones you can buy..

you want to look for high ram, 6-8 GB is decent for most games now, you want a decent video ram 2-3 GB is usually decent

You'll want an i7 with atleast 3.0 GHz

Hard drive storage is really up to you, if you find that you can easily fill up 500GB then try to get atleast 1 TB of space

I would say this one is decent, but if you have more money and are willing to spend then you could go for one of the more expensive ones, but always look at the specs and compare them first.

I'm gonna echo everyone else and say that if you want to get a dedicated gaming rig, a solid mid-grade, easily upgradable $800 desktop will get you much farther than a laptop. However, nandaaz's advice is not quite accurate. First of all, you don't spend $200+ on a new part just because you can only run the latest game on very high and not ultra. Secondly, his processor recommendations are totally wrong.

Generally speaking, your price range dictates what type of gaming computer you get, as well as whether you build it yourself or not (which is surprisingly easy to do, and totally worth the money). Without getting too detailed, here's a basic price and performance guide (based on USD):

$400-$600: AMD APU rig
* Based off of an AMD APU, a special type of CPU that works as both a processor and quite powerful graphics (for the size).
* Good power and good graphics, this will play any modern games at Medium or better in 1080p, and older games will run great.
* Low upgradability. You can easily upgrade the graphics (for ~$120 you can nearly double graphics performance), but APUs are not very strong processor.
* If you want a cheap and effective rig that'll play many modern games on High, and plan to save up for a few years before you buy a better computer, this is a smart choice.

$600-$800: Mainstream AMD build
* Based off of an AMD CPU, these are much better processors than the APUs, but don't have any built-in graphics.
* Good processing power, but you'll have to buy a separate graphics card.
* Good upgradability: AMD is very good about letting you upgrade your CPU, so you can get a mediocre one now and a better one down the road. Graphics cards are also easy to upgrade.
* If you want to save money and have better upgradability, this is a good option. You'll save money on the CPU, so you can buy a really good graphics card with the money saved.

Just a thought:

You can use some of AMDs cheaper dedicated CPUs in what would normally be an APU build, just get a GPU. I use an Athlon 2 X4 750k quad core running at 3.4ghz with a Gigabyte Windforce R9 270x graphics card, and it runs most games really well despite being a really cheap build.

$800-$1,000: Mainstream Intel build
* Based off of an Intel CPU. Currently, these are almost universally better than their AMD counterparts, but are more expensive. I would recommend a "Core i5" at this price point.
* Great processing power depending on which CPU you get. For gaming, i5s are the smartest choice, because the more expensive i7s, though more powerful, are so because they have more cores, something most games don't take advantage of.
* Now you're entering the territory where you can have fun with hard drives. A SSD drive will make your system scream, and you can swing for a 2TB or larger storage drive as well.
* These processors have decent built-in graphics, and are plenty usable if you can't afford everything at once, but you'll need to eventually get a graphics card to make this truly effective.
* Decent upgradability. You can easily upgrade the graphics, but the CPU won't have many options. However, at this price point, you don't really need to worry about upgrading, since you'll be able to play any new games on Ultra or High in 1080p for the next 5 years.
* If you want a very capable rig that won't break the bank and won't require many upgrades down the road, this is a great option. I chose this one.

$1000-$1500: Top of the line Intel build
* Based off of an Intel Core i7 CPU, which has tons of processing power at a high price point.
* Fantastic processing power, but again you'll need separate graphics. At this point, you can afford a $500+ graphics card, or buy multiple cards.
* Low upgradability. If you're spending this much, though, you aren't planning to upgrade.
* If you really want a powerful computer, use it for video editing or other intensive non-gaming purposes, or have no budget, this can be a good option.

Anything below $400 isn't worth getting, and anything above $1500 is way too expensive. You can always start off with one computer and upgrade, though - I had a $650 Intel build with no graphics that I've upgraded into an $1000 rig.

Don't get a laptop.
It sounds like a good idea, but believe me, an $800 desktop will be able to outperform a $2500 laptop any day.

Furthermore, desktop PCs are upgradeable. You can shoose one part of the PC you want to replace, and only have to replace that.

Basically, here's how it works with computers/laptops:
Computer: Buy new parts every few months for around €100-300
Laptop: Buy a total new one every few year

Computer: Something broke? Replace that single part and it'll work again!
Laptop: Something broke? Time for a new one!

Computer: Can't run that one game? If I change some settings/replace some parts with better ones, it will probably run!
Laptop: Can't run that one game? New one! (or no game...)

Computer: I want to clean the keyboard, and it's pretty easy because I can remove each key and clean it.
I want to clean the inside of my computer because its slow, and I can acces everything.
Laptop: Can't remove keys so can't clean the keyboard, and can't open your laptop (if u dont have several hours to spare) so you can't clean that either.

Also some advice when picking anything:
an intel processor with "Core i5" is for when you only use the internet, or low performance games.
an intel processor with "Core i7" is for when you want to play games like skyrim and World of Warcraft

Actually, a Core i5 is more than enough for most games. More expensive i5s run most games better than lower tier (but slightly more expensive) i7s, for some reason.

Of course, Im not using either. Im using an Athlon 2 X4 750k quad core running at 3.4ghz. Not amazing, but it was under $100 and I've yet to find a game my build can't play.

What i'm talking about in my original comment wasn't just the game itself. It's about the number of mods on skyrim, the settings in WoW, stuff like that.
Ofcourse the processors you described can run it, but when you want to have a really good time you will often find youself having lots of mods, addons etc, and I7 can handle those better than I5

The only differense between an i5 and and i7 is hyper threading. For gaming, I'd go for an i5 every day of the week.

Ever tried playing wow with all settings on "ultra high"? I don't think so.
Ever tried playing wow with lots of addons, or in a busy area? I don't think so.

And WoW was just an example, there are tons of games where you can choose your settings, download mods/addons/hacks, and all those things require a good processor.

not just crumbs, dust tends to gather around pc's and laptops too...

and while you can remove keys on some laptops nowadays, its often a lot of work, so most people just give up.

And do you play it with all the settings on "very high", lots of mods or anything like that? Because if not, I5 should have 0 trouble running it.
Skyrim itself doesn't require a good processor, but when you have 100 mods (like some people here on funnyjunk) your FPS will drop (sometimes just an overall lower FPS, sometimes random drops). That's why I recommend I7 to serious gamers, but for casual gamers it really doesn't matter.

Not true anymore with the dual GPU powered laptops. The laptop I'm currently using beats out my current desktop.

Lenova y510p dual 750m gpu and a really nice i7 all for about a $1000 and the gpu power is in-between a GTX 660 and a GTX 660 Ti.

Desktops still beat out laptops on being upgrade able.

Day Z story time: I walked into a building to see some guy kneeling down bleeding and another guy standing next to him. I stood there frozen because these were the first people i had seen in the game after playing it for about 2 hours. My thought process was: "This guy's friend is hurt maybe he needs help finding some medical supplies. I'll help them." I was then handcuffed and shot in the face shortly after. I don't think that guy on the ground was his friend....

Actually, now's probably the best time to get it, since the price will most likely go up when it comes out of alpha, and even more so when it comes out of beta.

I did kinda a dick move to this guy at spawn. As I just said, I just spawned when I was set upon by a zombie. Having no weapon, I decide to make a break for it and run to the woods. During my mad dash I managed to pick up a few more zombies. As I reach the tree line, I notice a green clad figure. A dude wearing camo, a motorcycle helmet, and wielding an assault rifle steps out of the trees a few yards ahead of me. He aims his weapon at me, but I was too desperate to stop, so I sprinted past him into the trees, and the five or six zombies now following me got agroed on him. Now, I'm sure he was able to survive, but he probably wasted a bunch of ammo and bandages to stay alive...You know what **** it, I didn't do anything "dickish" I survived mother ******!

It takes one bullet to drop a zombie, so he probably didn't have that much of a problem.
