Hello. A couple of months ago I posted a topic about a new computer. I am back again with another search since things have changed. My max budget is $800 dollars and I would like to get a LAPTOP that can run games like Battlefield 3 and Planetside 2 without the FPS dropping under 20. (I have tried searching on my own but I couldn't find anything that wouldn't be above 1K dollars.) I know place this search on you guys to find such a heavenly device.

This is the only laptop that will do it in your price range http://shop.lenovo.com/SEUILibrary/controller/e/web/LenovoPortal/en_US/catalog.workflow:category.details?current-catalog-id=12F0696583E04D86B9B79B0FEC01C087&current-category-id=AC523278A4F13F27A84F5F5622D1AC7A#.UKb2RYe5N8F I wouldn't get it personally though. That gross resolution display.

No it's not. It's awful. I play at 4:3 for mp because mouse movement feels better. The LCD contrast for them low resolution displays is almost always around 200:1 and 300:1 at best. The 1920x1080 displays generally hover at 800;1+ Why do you think apple pushes high resolution displays on their mbp? It's just a lot better. Also more real estate.  As you will see almost all those 200:1 contrast laptops have 1376x768 displays http://www.anandtech.com/show/5998/macbook-pro-retina-display-analysis

Thanks for your suggestion. I think I will keep it in mind, but I am going to continue searching. Thanks again.
