    Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E520 NZ33NMB Azerty

    Acer Aspire 5750G-2634G64MN Azerty

    After hours of research it's between these 2 laptops. they are just within my price range (800 euros) and they seem good enough for me. Which one should i choose?
    i want to run:

    - CoD MW2
    - Team Fortress 2
    - Just Cause 2
    - GTA IV
    - maybe fallout3/new vegas/oblivion?
    - UT 2004

    the laptop will be used for school work and especially gaming. thanks so much!

    Acer. Nvidia always wins in the gaming department

    not only that, but radeon has a history of using intel hd as a mask, so some games will outright reject it

    okay, thanks for that site, excellent
    at MW2 it reads
    low:
    ~ 149 fps
    med.:
    ~ 51 fps
    high:
    ~ 42 fps

    i'll run it at med then, 50FPS on average seems good enough!

    To play FPS games it is often advised to have at least 60 FPS. High-pace games like CoD need more than 30 FPS to be played perfectly. So you should use low settings, maybe mixed with some higher settings if you want.

    The Thinkpad line from Lenovo is far better built than anything Acer can churn out though.

    But I do agree that the Acer one has a better laptop video card.

    Note being a laptop video card do not expect miracles. They are 'better than Intel' and that's about it. Expect to be running at Medium settings for most games.

    The wierd thing is on the Lenovo website the E520 Edge only comes with the IntelHD3000. I don't even see an option to add an AMD graphics chipset.
