Hey fellas, I finally cut-short my list to these 3 gaming laptops. So, I just want you to rate these 3 laptops on the aspect of their performance (playing games fluently). I’ll be thankful if you can rate these 3 laptops by giving them marks out of 10(again just consider the gaming performance aspect). Additionally, please also tell me what the difference between switchable graphics is. Are switchable graphics are known as crossfire/SLI.
Here are the 3 laptops with their specifications. 1) LENOVO Y560, PROCESSOR: core i7-740QM, RAM: 4GB DDR3, HARD DISK:500GB @5400rpm, GRAPHICS CARD: dedicated 1GB DDR3 with ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5730, SCREEN AND RESOLUTION: 15.6 HD LED Glare 1366*768. 2) DELL XPS 15, PROCESSOR: core i7-740QM, RAM: 4GB DDR3, HARD DISK: 500GB @7200rpm, GRAPHICS CARD: dedicated 2GB NVIDIA GeForce GT 435M, SCREEN & RESOLUTION: 15.6 FHD(1920*1080) B+RGLED display with TrueLife. 3) MSI GX660, PROCESSOR: core i5-460M, RAM: 4GB DDR3, HARD DISK: 500GB SATA @5400 rpm, GRAPHICS CARD: dedicated 1GB DDR5 with ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5870, SCREEN & RESOLUTION: 15.6 HD,Glare(1366*768) LED.

The rating for the graphics cards click here are as follows:

hd5870 14th
hd 5730 53rd
gt 435m 55th

comparison of i7 vs i5 click here suggests that i5 may be preferable, but that's your choice.

Display resolution of your number 2 at 1920x1080 is the highest of the three.

All other parameters are pretty equal. That should help you make your choice.

thanks dude. i find these links a gr8 help. but according to you which system is the best,for example, when games will be played at a 1366*768 resolution on all 3 above mentioned systems, and plz keep in mind that i had to keep this laptop for atleast 2 will games in 2011 n 2012 will be able to run on these systems smoothly at medium settings,if yes then which laptop will be the best best after keeping these things in mind.

You need to look at the specs for the games you want to play to decide which is the best resolution for them. I am not a gamer and I have no idea what games will be available in 2011 or 2012.
