I bought a new 17" HP A8 APU laptop for $300 a slickdeal posted a while ago. This thing is beefcake! It can run diablo 3 on high, borderlands 2 on medium. Obviously you won't be playing games like crysis 3 on ultra which are benchmark games for needing the best video card on the market
In for one. I'm wanting an AMD A series to play Skyrim on. I just returned a Gateway A8-4500M refurb because the Skyrim inventory, save, and NPC conversation menus would occasionally but suddenly go all wonky on me and make it impossible to play the game. But on low the frame rate blew away the ivy bridge i5 Lenovo that I was using before. I have an Acer with a Llano A6 that has the same problem as the Gateway that I should have returned rather than thinking I could fix the problem. I'm hoping that it is something with Acer products and the Asus won't suffer the same.
this deal vs. other deal
15" vs. 17"
1366 res vs. 1600
Win 7 vs. Win 8
0.3MP cam vs. HD cam
285+tax vs 262+tax
edit1 - strange this says 2.2Ghz, that CPU is listed 1.9Ghz everywhere I look. Maybe they are turboing it or something? Can anyone find a diff between the 1.9 and 2.2? the cpubenchmark info says 1.9Ghz
