    I want a decent laptop that will play age of conan, settings dont matter that much as long as it runs.

    I currently run it at home on a quad core, 8800ultra 4 gigs, so I get eye candy then.

    I am looking to spend really no more then 1000 bucks, so I guess the main question is what video card do I need to run the game well enough not to get any fps drops?

    Thanks

    edit: someone had posted this on this forum: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834220331
    Would that be my best bet? with the 9500?

    I have a Lenovo thinkpad that I bought strictly for school/research.

    Anyway, when my old desktop (which had 2 6800 ultra's in SLI) would not run age of conan (i suspect because it had 2 gigs of ram), I installed it on my laptop, which is a dual core intel with a FX570M (I think) with 3 gigs of ram. I think the 570M is very similar to the 8600 mobile.

    The game ran fine on low settings. This was back during the closed beta, so I would assume the FPS would be better now.

    Anyway, in terms of sturdiness, I love my thinkpad, and in the future, unless something REALLY nice comes out, I will probably never buy anything but Thinkpads. (I am incredibly satisfied with it)

    That's a great choice. The HD3650 is similar in performance and may be slightly faster but it's a hundred bucks more, so I would just go with the one you have picked out already.
