Best laptop for PS2 emulation
#1
Music 
Since my laptop runs 80 percent of PS2 games between 25 to 45 fps(in Software Mode), I want to buy a new laptop that fully supports some heavy/slow games like [Gran turismo 4, Shadow of the colossus, Metal gear solid 3 and ...]
So which laptop in the market is the best choice for emulation of PS2 game?Unsure

Something like this (obviously not this because it's out of stock atm)

Anything with these processors and any of these GPUs will run a lot (if not all games) at max FPS. Have a look around American shops and you'll find something like this easily.

the highest possible is i7-3520M w/ basic speed of 2.9Gs

don't try to get the "QM" models almost all of them has very low on basic clock speed and hi-temps potential.
Main Hub:i5-4670(3.4Ghz Factory Clocked),ATi Radeon HD7770(GDDR5+128-bit+1GB),Win 10 SL(x64),ASUS H8M-E,8GB DDR3 RAM

No problems with high temps or "low" speeds on my end.
