Whats the lowest i# i can go for the best results
#1
I am looking at laptops for pcsx2 gaming. I have a ps2 that doesnt work well anymore.
So i was hoping to get a laptop with a intel card (i was told dont look for amd cards)
so i can play all my games and even hook the laptop to a tv and play with freinds

but can i go I3 and get sse4 or I5 or I7

I can imagine people would recomend I7 easily but i cant afford a I7 laptop

so whats the lowest i can go and get the greatest 60+fps non stop every game???

from what I remember being told..

i3 on a laptop is 2 cores, no threads (meaning 2 threads only)
i5 is 2/2 (4 threads)
and i7 is 4/4 (8 threads)

Personally, I know you won't get 60 fps every game no problem. some games even at 4ghz can't achieve it.

most games however. I would shoot at an i5 as fast as you can get.
On my desktop I have an i3 @ 3.2 and doing very well

edit: furthermore, what "all games" are you wanting to play?

Well maybe 60fps all games is a bit unrealistic
but What i want to look for is decent playable but faster then 20fps speed, no graphic errors, and games can play

I played a game had perfect 60fps but graphic errors didnt show stuff, or The game played 60fps but when there was more then 3 characters on screen (like zombie games) it lagged badly.

another important question:

Why a laptop, specifically?

It is portable and easier to do my work as a graphic artist when on the go.
I get some free time when on the road traveling. So it makes it easier to play something portable in a hotel room or a RV then bringing a bunch of wires and a broken down ps2.

just to give you an idea. on my desktop (2.2 with a GeForce GT 430), with speedhacks, I could get 30-50/60 fps on most games, and this was a long time ago
