    laptops for gaming

    So i need some help. I work away alot, and usually game on console. Im looking at buying a laptop for gaming while im away, but dont know what specs i should be looking at, or what im looking at in general. Travelling by plane i dont want anything overly heavy. It would mostly be playing FPS type games. Im not looking to spend alot of money. Would a laptop costing around $400-600 with 8gb of ram be enough?.

    Also, thoughts on buying a second hand gaming laptop?

      First look at site of the makers of the games you want to play for the recommended system requirements. Then you know what you’re looking for, and tell us that.

      Many are sold because the owner had problems with the unit or it didn’t meet their needs. Since you want it for gaming this is usually a bad idea unless you can withhold payment until you can be sure your choice of game runs without issues.

      Gaming on a plane? That’s another issue. Laptops reduce performance to extend battery time. My gaming laptops could not reach 60 minutes of runtime if I overrode the settings to get game performance.

      That’s TWO NO’s from me dawg.

      I also wanted to buy one with this budget. That’s why I’m answering.
