Best laptop for ultimate PCM experience
This thread might not be the first so i'm sorry in advance if so..

I'm currently playing PCM 17 but on almost lowest graphics. I really want to get a better experience playing.

So question is what laptop would you recommend?
It need to be a laptop cause i'm always bringing PCM when i'm travelling.

I would like to get some links to specific laptops for a affordable price Smile

Thanks in advance !

Well, what's your budget? And can you post here or send me in PM web address for some tech. shops in your country.

I would ask all the people from the Balkan to contact me so that we can create our community.

List of Balkan countries:
- Albania
- Bosnia & Herzegovina
- Bulgaria
- Croatia
- Greece
- Kosovo
- Macedonia
- Montenegro
- Romania
- Serbia
- Slovenia
- Turkey
My budget is about 1400 USD but i'm willing to adjust a bit

This might not even be the highest grapchis but look at this:

So smooth!

Or this:

What kind of PC/Laptop are they using if you should guess?

Hi man, those are not laptops for sure xD. They are using PC with new generation graphic cards.
but you can get laptops with new gen cards or what?

for 1400€, all you can get is a 1060. should be alright.

The GPU isn't solely what makes you able to run the game on higher settings.

I'd say you'll need a laptop with an Intel i7 (6700HQ or 7700HQ) processor, an 256GB SSD combined with a 1TB HDD for storing your games, at least 16GB DDR4 RAM and a GTX 1060. A laptop with these specs would cost aroudn 1600 USD though.

If you switch to a GTX 1050 and just an 128GB SSD, you'll quickly get down to your price range, which is also quite an acceptable setup for a gaming laptop.

I'm not an expert on AMD (not a big fan either), so I can't give you any comparison on their components. What I do know is that there aren't many gaming laptops with AMD components around, which must be for a reason Wink
Inactive due to personal reasons.
you do not need an intel i7.

In fact, for a gaming pc or laptop I'd advise against the extra price of an I7 compared to an I5. For gaming, you can rely almost solely on your graphics card.

I have a 5 year old I7 and it can probably last another 5 years easily as long as I keep upgrading my GFX card every 2/3 years.

The % increase in performance is minimal nowadays. And I7 you pay extra for the hyperthreading technology which is never used in games. Stick with an I5 if you are on a tighter budget. And use that money for your GFX card
Thanks guys
