Hi guys, I am looking to buy a new laptop that can run starcraft 2 at least on medium settings with no lag. I'm not sure wat resolution its going to be in. But I am getting for a 15'6 inch laptop so whatever that resolution is? Not sure what resolution means. And I am hoping for a graphics card of ATI HD 5470 or better. Now my budget is $700 and I will also use this laptop for school work too XD and it needs to be portable and last a while on its battery too. So maybe 3 hours?( No gaming during those 3, just work). So is it better to get an i3 or spend more for an i5.

Thanks!

Hello and welcome to the forums
15.6" laptops have different resolutions,like 1366x768,1440x900,1920x1080 etc, so it depends on the model.
Don't expect a 5470M to run SC2 on medium settings, because its a low-end card.However you can play it on low settings on a low resolution.
