What are some decent laptops for around $600-$700 that can run D3?

I was looking at ASus laptops last night and heard they are decent for gaming.

Acer Aspire AS7750G-6645. Doesnt have all the nice extra stuff but can play games and its cheap with a 17" screen.

Havent played D3 on it, but STWOR and mlb2k12 play fines on it.

I have the Acer Aspire 7741G-6426 and love it. Plays newer games without a problem on max settings.

My son plays it just fine on a $300 2011 model Acer laptop with Intel integrated graphics.

I am looking to play on AT LEAST Medium settings.. preferably High, though. I found this link and I tried looking up graphics cards that are in laptops from best buy but I can't find them on this page. What would the ones in the best buy ASUS laptops be similar to? Sorry for all the questions.. I just really want to play this game and not be laggy or have problems. It's been so long since I've played Diablo II and I had no idea D3 was coming out this soon until a week or so ago. Thanks for the replies!

Seems like this would be a good one for an awesome price... is that Radeon 7670M graphics card a really good one? I'm looking for at least Medium settings to play D3 and I don't want it to be laggy or anything.

#9 Posted by TrentB924 (664 posts) -

Bump.. that Acer Aspire seems like it works well with a lot of games. Lot of great reviews!

#10 Posted by TrentB924 (664 posts) -

Bump. Anyone else recommend thatversion acer aspire? I've only seen 1 person say that it lags.

Omg really... This game is made to run on just about any laptop you can find at Walmart for $300. If you spend $600-$700 on any laptop and it doesn't play this on high you got ripped off. Go to newegg and see which one suits you best and I'm sure for that price you will be running med-high.

Well people have been tellin me you need something with a really good graphics card. I was just making sure since I don't know much about computers. Thanks for the replies though everyone.

Take everything you read on gamefaqs with a massive grain of salt. Anything with an HD4200 Mobility or under will not run this game.. don't take it if it's using integrated graphics which is most of your 3-600 dollar laptops.

I just google searched it. I googled that version I the Aspire and one person said it's smooth and one person said it lags lol. Is a Radeon HD 7670M good enough? I don't want to be disappointed.

Here is a great one that will run it smooth for $680 http://www.bjs.com/asus-r500vd-bs71-156-laptop-with-3rd-gen-intel-core-i7-3610qm-processor-with-turbo-boost-20-8gb-ddr3-500gb-hdd---mocha.product.219653?sc_cid=affil Just google the name of the graphics card and diablo 3, and read the results. No integrated graphics cards will run this game. Anyone that says otherwise is an idiot (above poster). The laptop I posted has a dedicated 2GB graphics card, which is what most people are running it on on their desktops.

I already ordered an Acer Aspire. Thanks for the reply though! I hope the Aspire runs it well..

i find the difference between low and high settings to be minimal. just do yourself a favor and download pyloneer's darkd3 mod.
