Diablo® III

Which of these 2?

i am choosing between 2 laptops and really don't know much about computers. and was hoping everyone could help me out. LAPTOP 1 is a little more expensive but is 17" and laptop 2 is 14". i will be using this laptop for diablo 3, WoW, and hopefully some other games in the future. First and foremost i want to make sure these laptops can handle Diablo 3, and secondly which of the 2 is the better option. Thank you in advanced for your help, i really appreciate it.

NOTE: i know these may not be the best options and that a pc would be a much better option, but i am going with one of these two so i would appreciate it if no one gives any outside suggestions. ~LAPTOP 1~

Do you really want a laptop for gaming? It's generally better to get a desktop for gaming.

That said, both laptops have not that great specs.

Check out something like this (MSI-1761/MSI-1762 builders)

sure you already bought but both sound like alienware m17x and m14x and both will play diablo 3 and are totally meant for gaming

I play on a laptop 99% of the time, and when I have a desktop monitor hooked up to it, I don't even like the full screen real estate, its too busy and required much more eye/head movement to see it all. I even started to play in windowed mode on the laptop monitor.

to answer the OP's question, the 2nd laptop seems better spec'ed. and you can always tune the in game options to make it work.

the one thing you have to consider is that laptop lcd is never as good as desktop lcd. and if you want true mind blowing graphics, you want to run it with a dekstop monitor, and most likely a capable graphics card that is only on the desktop. then you probably want to play a different game than diablo 3. diablo 3 = farming, efficiency, etc, not ALL about graphics. so any laptop will do.
