Need some help finding what I want. For starters I have a gaming desktop and a psv so I don't need or want a hardcore gaming laptop. I am 33 now, been playing games since Atari 2600, and love it all. I have an 11 year old son and a 2 year old daughter. I work as a full time firefighter, 24 hours on 48 off, and my wife works full time also. Because of this I dont have time to play MMORPG's anymore, or use my desktop. I have a bad back so I can not sit at a desk and be able to get up fast and easy to take care of the kids. I have the desktop set up on my recliner so I can be comftorable.
Obviously this is not ideal anymore, especially since I am not playing games as much. So I said all that so you will know my situation to better help me. I need a laptop that is portable and easy to move around the house and back and forth to work. I won't just be setting the laptop up at my chair or the table, so thin and light would be nice. Also i would like something 11-14 inches and no more than 5 lbs, the lower the better.
Now I know thin and light and gaming laptops don't go in the same sentence lol. I would like something to run Torchlight 2 full specs and Diablo 3 atleast on medium (I have hope for the expansion now with the leadership change :D ) I would prefer a descrete graphics card, but would accept An A10 4600m processor. It would run those games decent and I can upgrade that APU down the road. Although a descrete graphics card is prefered.
My problem is finding what I want in thin and light. Screen resolution and hard drives are my main concern. 1366 x 768 is only good to me on an 11 incher. 13-14 i prefer atleast 1600 x 900. I would rather not go with a 15 incher but will if I can not find what I want. A thin and light 15 incher 5 lbs or under would be ok if the screen was 1920 x 1280, unless a 1600 x 900 is just beautiful. Also I want a matte screen, no glossy.
Atleast a 7200 rpm harddrive or SSD. I would like 8gb dual channel DDR3 memory, preferably 1600 mhz.
I know I am picky. If I can get a good screen processor and gpu I can and will change the hard drive and memory. Also if you find one that is great other than the screen, I will change the screen myself if I can find an upgrade.
Price is important but as set as I am for what I want just let me know what you find regardless of the price.
Oh, other than Torchlight 2 and Diablo 3 I am really getting into older games from gog.com, I find myself less worried about awesome graphics as I get older, hence the no use for a heavy duty gaming laptop. I still have a gaming desktop for that. I would like to be able to run Never Winter Knights 2 on it if possible, or the Witcher 1. Would be really awesome for something to run Skyrim on low if possible (I plan on buying the discounter box set in a year or so, you know it is coming0
Thank you for your help, I really need it.
Any ideas are welcome! :D
