Hi everyone I have a budget of around $2000, maybe a bit more and was wondering if anyone has any suggestions for a laptop available in NZ that can handle the latest Star Wars Battlefront game? Many thanks!

how big of a screen do you want?


what size Hard drive? do you want a second drive? how much ram do you want?


Most will handle it at the minimum specs but do you want to play it at max settings?

Regarding SWBF, note that the low player base on PC means it can be hard to find a game.


Personally I regard SWBF to be a big disappointment, buyer beware...

That one indeed looks good, thanks for the suggestion! As for screen size, 14" or 15" would be ideal, other than that I am not too fussed about the specs. And I played swbf recently and really liked it.
