My limit is around 600$. The laptop is on sale still but they made a mistake and took it out of sale but it still is. If anyone can made a gaming desktop I can try and convince her. I only play the sims, warz,minecraft, and want to play guild wars 2.
That will run the game not anywhere near high settings but at that monitor rez it should be OK on best preformance with everything turned off maby even better. Some people say the HD4000 runs the game fine for them this is the only thing I could find on it, pay no attention the the first response skip down to the HD4000 part. http://www.guildwars2guru.com/topic/...intel-hd-4000/
gabe that will play the game, however the sale is prbly not hard to find again later. From a thread by Cibby in here "I got an Acer laptop computer 17.3 I5Intel 2.5 ghz 6gb ram and Nvidia GeForce 640M with 2g video card for $699."
if you are just wait you can find a laptop with discrete graphics. Intel 4000 is definitely capable of playing the game on low however.
