I am looking for a laptop that's less than $750 that can run some PC games.

First, let me start by saying I am not looking into an expensive amazing laptop that is off the charts. This past spring/summer I built a desktop for my boyfriend so he could play all the games he wants.

What I am looking for is a laptop that would be (mainly) used for basic things, but also has the specs that can decently run games. I am interested to try to learn some PC games to play with my boyfriend, and since we can't be on the same computer, we need to get a second. My laptop just died.. so ideally I would like a laptop for the convenience.

The biggest dilemma I am having at the moment is with the CPUs. I went on and looked at system requirements for games like SC2 and Diablo III to get an idea, but when reading in some forums, a lot of people are claiming less powerful CPUs could run the games just fine. Right now he has been playing LOL, which isn't as demanding.. but I'm looking for a machine that could potentially support future games as well.

So, I guess what I am asking is :

-How important is CPU speed? -Intel vs AMD? -I know the GPU should have dedicated memory, is there a certain amount I should be looking for? -Does anyone have an inexpensive laptop that they game on?

If anyone could help me, I would be very thankful!!!

Thanks in advance! :)
