6K Benchmark score, on a laptop?Follow

I was wondering if anyone knows an out of the box laptop that could score 6000 or better on the FFXIV benchmark. I was really trying to wait for the PS3 release, but my wife says we "need" a new laptop. Her wish my command kind of thing. Anyway, if we're getting a new one, I'd like one that could easily handle FFXIV and I'll be able to jump in sooner than I expected. Thanks for any feedback!

BTW, I haven't really been around the site too much (being sadly dissapointed that FFXIV on PS3 is delayed till after the apocalypse) so, while I understand that the score on the benchmark doesn't exactly mean how well you'll run the game, I figure that a 6K should mean I can easily handle just about anything it has to send my way. Yes? No? Opinions and advice more than welcome!

Get an ASUS G73 laptop. It probably won't get that 6000 FFXIV score you're looking for but it handles the game, any game for that matter, pretty well.

Thanks, I'll do a little research and price shopping and I'll follow your lead!

The benchmark hasn't been relevant since a few days after retail release. Very irrelevant these days with the additional graphics options available.

I use an Asus G73, and the game runs very well. Unfortunately I don't remember what I scored on the benchmark. You can't max everything out, even if you do overclock it, but it runs very smoothly with above average settings. It runs fairly cool by laptop standards and unless you are grinding some serious graphics it is very quiet from my experience. I bought mine because I needed to replace my desktop with something a little more portable. I should warn you, it is big and heavy, and won't fit in a normal laptop case because of its thickness. It will also probably run you from $1k-$1.6k depending on the specs.

Thanks for all the feedback. I really appreciate it. I kind of had a thought that the benchmark wouldn't mean too much anymore. I'll definitely look into the ASUS G73. Hopefully I'll be joining the ranks of PC FFXIV players soon. I've never played any games on a PC, of course besides the games that come with windows. Even for FFXI I was only on X-box.
