I know nothing about laptops, so is this one good enough for those games.

    A good way to know that is to look into the "recommended specs" for these games.
    .
    All 3 of these games have pretty modest requirements that this laptop should have no issues with.
    .
    You are lucky your son is not looking for a laptop for BFV, I shiver at the cost of a laptop that can run BFV well.

    I did look at the spec but was not sure.
    Yes a good laptop kost around 2000-2500 EUR in denmark as far as I can see. This one only cost 750 EUR.

    In Greece there is that alienware selling for over 4000 euro. I am trying to imagine what kind of player would put that much money for a laptop

    Should be totally fine for those games.

    Bf games are a different beast however I was able to play the first 5 month on my trusty old notebook and still got somewhat stable 60fps.

    i7 4700hq
    16gb ram
    Radeon hd8970m 4gb vram.

    All on low but who cares 8)
    Just saying notebooks aren't as bad as some people think.

    Were those laptops overheating like ovens like I expect them to do?

    I would take a look at the new AMD Renoir 4700u / 4800h laptop series.

    Something like this would be the first thing i would start up compairing to other notebooks.

    Running it on Ryzen 5, 8GB ram and Radeon Vega 8.

    CS GO works ok 60fps on 720p resolution but BF5 I get like 30fps on low and 1024x768. The geforce 1650 should be much faster though.

    Can I borrow this topic for one question? For desktop PC what would you choose Ryzen9 or Intel Core 9? If you had to choose between these two...

    I would go with Ryzen for cost efficiency. You can then use the money saved to improve another part of the PC

    AMD will present the new Ryzen generation (zen3) in 4th quarter of the year. I would wait that time and then look at the benchmarks. 
    Right now Ryzen is more cost and power efficent as Intel. But lacks some FPS in 1080p. 
    The higher the Resolution is you are using the less the CPU matters. 
    Ryzen 9 and i9 are almost similar in 4k, and have a difference about 5% in 1440p while in 1080p with 8-15% Intel is always the better choice for performance.

    Main issue with gaming laptops is cooling mostly.

    And upgrading.
    You are more or less stuck with what you originally buy.

    Yes it was in 2010. Rly not that bad anymore, you just need to do a bit of research and find a good laptop. I had an msi with an i7 6700hq and a 970m. Never went above 70c with it. I gave it to my friend so he can play bf with me and its still as cool as it was on day 1.

    Frindly-Fire-4 Me too, when I traveled a lot for work I had an Alienware laptop that I bought back during BF4. It still plays most modern games even Battlefield games. They're nice but pricey...and heavy!

    I play on PS4 now but did a bit of research into laptop graphics cards a while ago. You may find this link useful

    BFV is there if you scroll across. Then just dow the various graphics cards. Laptop graphics cards don't tend to be as good as the desktop PC one's with the same name.

    Shout out to your son as being lucky to have you as a dad. It's kind to give him a laptop if he's already got a good PC :-)

    With that said, those specs are fine, though he won't be able to run everything on max settings.

    Lastly, I think this topic fits very well in the off-topic board, so I'm moving it there.

    Thanks. Appreciate it
    My son became very sick 1,5 year ago and lives in a sheltered residence with health care providers.
    They are going on a 1 week vacation and I want him to be able to play with the others, why I'm buying him a laptop.
    I bought a monster PC for him last year, so this is a travel PC. I dont want him to waste opportunities to play in his situation

    Take a look on this numbers!

    Paired with a good mobile GPU could be enough!
