@JaguarDTM I dont think people realise just how much less performance you get from a laptop specified graphics card.

Laptop versions of graphics cards are a lot worse than desktop counter parts. I have actually over heard a PC World shop assistant advising customers that there is pretty much no difference. Not true.

A word of warning people, careful research should be completed before purchasing a laptop when you are wanting to use it for gaming. Use our tools to better help you understand the differences.  We are very happy for feedback if you discover that a laptop graphics card can suitabley play a game when we are displaying that it cant. We will adjust our data to better help everyone.

I was hoping that my system would be able to play this awesomeness without fault when it comes out... Ah well, at least all I'll need is just a new graphics card!

This. Is. Going. To. Be. SO. GREAT.

I'm excited because it's a Battlefield game and they typically tend to be fun and a little more believable in terms of vocal emotions and such but for once I would like to see someone publish a game that's brutally realistic in the sense of carnage, bullet impacts (bodily wise; like if you shoot someone's hand, they're not going to sit there and flinc a little bit and continue to use that hand to shoot with) and people would give this damn war on terror thing a rest! Nowadays, games seem to be created by some guy that goes, "This core concept from CoD is good, and so is this concept from some other shooter! Lets build a game around those two ideas and add a drop or two of our own originanility in it!"
