Hey there! Just a head's up, for $6.59 you can get a wifi antenna here:

I'm not sure of the OP's financial situation, but if need be, I'll toss in $7 via Paypal to pay for this if the OP needs!

I love that you're giving this away. Bravo! I hope the winner is happy (not entering myself as I have an existing system).

Best of luck all!

I unboxed and deployed about 500 of these a few months ago. They are pretty unremarkable laptops but decent for the price. Durable and reasonably easy to work on. The RAM is not soldered down and you could easily upgrade to SSD later on. The touchpad and screen are both enjoyable. I didn't like the keyboard though, it felt like the key travel was very short and mushy. I am not a keyboard snob at all (no mechanical keyboards in my house) and I still found it hard to type on. We did have maybe 10/500 that came from the factory with sticky keys (that stick down or are very slow to come back up) so this seems to be something they are prone to. Another issue is the cable that connects the touchscreen to the motherboard seems to break under normal use. If you are not buying a touchscreen model though this probably won't matter to you, and in any case they might have come up with a better cable by now since I believe they are aware of this problem. It only affects the touchscreen input, not the display itself. I have played AOE and AOEII on mine and it ran well.

Normally i5 indicates four cores, but the i5 in this laptop is really more of an i3. It is a dual core with hyperthreading. You can now buy laptops with the next-gen i3-5020u which is the same configuration (dual core with hyperthreading) and much cheaper. Then you could spend the difference on an SSD. For instance, you could buy something like this and something like this. This would be a better setup IMO.

Acer Aspire E5 with a Geforce 940 MX (2 GB GDDR5 variant). It is under $600 and it has the fastest GPU for this price.

The Geforce 940 MX GDDR5 is twice as fast as the Intel HD 620. It may still not be enough to run games fluently at high resolutions and settings, but it is a step forward. It can play most games at 720p low 30-40 fps. Slightly better then the desktop Geforce GT 730 GDDR5.

Games from few years ago can be played even better.

Honestly maybe playing some WOW or older stuff. I have a desktop for some big boy games. MOST of my time is streaming ISO files, browsing and ripping stuff

I just hate knowing I can spend about $140 or so and get a dedicated

And this one with an HD 620 looks great for the price

Here is what I was looking at

u/Senor_Platano · 1 pointr/lowendgaming

What's the price? okay, $560, not bad, but if you spend a bit more than $200 you can get something that gets 50fps in Mad Max instead of 20fps, but you said really light gamer so I'd say get the $560 one, I'm pretty sure that it's the best there is for less than $600

This is good:

What's your maximum budget?

A refurb desktop might do you some good and give you the room to throw in a stronger GPU later. Of course, you might be better-served by a laptop since you don't have your own place right now.

This A10-6700 desktop and this A10-7800 desktop would do well and can run most games on modest settings. The RAM is probably 1333 or 1600Mhz, which would make the APU performance suffer.

This HP looks to have an i5-2400. weaker graphics off the bat, but a Sandy Bridge i5 is an excellent option for you to throw in a stronger GPU later.

/r/suggestalaptop's cheapest gaming quick pick is the Asus F555LA with an i3-5010U sporting Intel HD 5500 graphics.

u/fiat124 · 2 pointsr/lowendgaming

I have a GT1030 in an HP Elite PC and it works very well. I dont play AAA games, but newer stuff like Tacoma and Infra looks REALLY nice. Here's the one I bought:

u/drfoqui · 7 pointsr/lowendgaming

There are some sales on Amazon you can check out.

This one has Intel HD5500 graphics.
This one has HD520 which are better.

Those will even run things like Rocket League, which I've player on a laptop with a i5-3370u and HD4000 graphics.

u/gummibear049 · 5 pointsr/lowendgaming

Make sure you dust/clean the air vents.

Also the fan/heatsink that originally game on the laptop may not be able to handle the additional heat produced by the faster CPU.

You may want to try a laptop cooling pad or aftermarket fan attachment.

u/liviu910etare · 3 pointsr/lowendgaming

If where you live you've got a lively 2nd hand market for gpus go there , find a 750ti or smth , also if you dont buy this gt 1030 its cheaper than what youre getting

u/SirPringles · 4 pointsr/lowendgaming

I have a cooling pad (This one, works fairly well) but it does still get hot... Maybe I need to invest in a new one.

Though after doing some research, I found that it is a pretty common problem. I found a way to fix it from /r/TheSims, but I haven't tried it yet.

Thanks for the input!

You might ask this over in /r/suggestalaptop.

A quick browse through the Amazon US marketplace the only thing that kinda popped out at me was the Acer Aspire E 15, 15.6" Full HD, 8th Gen Intel Core i3-8130U, 6GB RAM Memory, 1TB HDD, 8X DVD, E5-576-392H. For $309, but as you're in a different country the price/shipping/duty may be significantly different. The other systems at that price point didn't really measure up for overall performance, though there are a few things about the E15 that aren't the greatest. There's a fairly decent review of the system at LaptopMag. Basically you get a full fledged Core i-series with the UHD Graphics 620 which performs better than the Pentiums/Celerons and AMD A-series that seem to be the mainstay of the sub $300 market. While the system has dual channel RAM that's all important for iGPU systems, it's unfortunately in a 2+4 configuration, which means you're stuck with only 4GB of dual channel RAM and the system taking a performance hit as soon as you go over that, so you'll want to change out the 2GB SoDIMM for a 4GB one as soon as you are able (should you go with this route). There are Ryzen 3 systems at this price point that may have trade offs in system configurations worth considering, but it seemed all of them only had a single stick of RAM which really hamstrings the Vega graphics gaming performance. There's a lot to research for sure.

Prey (The first one)

Tons more but this should be enough for you for now.

u/lskennedy · 5 pointsr/lowendgaming

I'm guessing you're looking at this laptop for the i5 setup:

Acer Aspire E5-573G 15.6-Inch Gaming Laptop (Intel Core i5 5200U, 8GB, 1TB, NVIDIA GeForce 940M 2GB, Windows 10 Home)

I can pretty much say there isn't a better laptop at that price.

u/kaadmy · 1 pointr/lowendgaming

Yeah, it'll have a 940MX.

Actual laptop to be precise:

u/Prengle · 0 pointsr/lowendgaming

Here's my solution.

In all honesty, I think it's the graphics card, but TS3 is known to perform horribly on pretty much everything. Could just be the game.

u/Kryeiszkhazek · 3 pointsr/lowendgaming

Idk for sure about the Gold version but I can verify that both pirated versions and what you get from the "Battle Chest" work on 8.1

u/Bipartisan_Integral · 1 pointr/lowendgaming

Have a look at this.
You can play but I'm not sure about future proofing.

u/BluBoi263 · 1 pointr/lowendgaming

Can this laptop run TBOI and Nox Android Emulator?

u/TheChosenFool · 2 pointsr/lowendgaming

I was on a budget and went with this one I wouldn't recommended it though because the display is a TN panel. I got use to it though and don't mind anymore.

u/jvivavev4 · 6 pointsr/lowendgaming

Now is a bad time to buy a laptop with Raven Ridge and Coffee Lake coming soon. If you really need something now though I'd recommend the Acer Aspire E 15. It's got a 1080p screen and has an i3 + HD 620 iGPU that can handle light gaming.

u/All_Work_All_Play · 3 pointsr/lowendgaming

If battery life is important, go with the 8250U. It gets about 3x performance per watt, which is roughly 80% more battery life when you factor everything else in. I have a 8250U laptop and I have to be seriously negligent to actually run out of juice. I've also had a HQ type laptop before, and those rarely last 4 hours without a plug.

As far as the newer generation, this is the 4/8 8th Feb it but it's currently on back order and I'm not sure of the availability in India. It would also have a hard time getting 4 hours of battery life, although it would be noticably faster at heavy computation.

u/harrisonh_14 · 1 pointr/lowendgaming

My acer laptop isn’t too bad after I upgraded to 8 GB of ram but it is $359

u/palad · 3 pointsr/lowendgaming

It looks like you can still find some Amazon sellers with physical copies of the game for PC at reasonable prices. Not sure if shipping would kill the deal, and you would still have to have some form of electronic payment.
