I could never recommend a 2009 laptop. Especially not for gaming. 

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus threadUserbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

What kinda of light gaming?

 

And out of these the 2018 hp with the 8550u is obviously the best.

Seems like the 2018 hp pavilion is the better option. as the cpu is a lot better and the gpu also looks like it is better

Part from cs:go, minecraft and fallout that is NOT LIGHT GAMING. Fornite sure that can still go 60 at 720p lowest but anything else is at best 720p 30fps territory here.

 

You need to get a different laptop here these are not it. These are office machines meant for long battery life.

Without a graphics card, modern AAA titles are barely playable unless your standards for playable are quite low

Yeah I've used one, it was quite painful.

 

It's also surprising that the models that were equipped with a 980M are still either insanely expensive or have all died.

Yeah the 980m and full 980 laptops were kinda not ready for their cards and are dead or the ones that were handling them ok stay expensive basically because there is no others pushing the price down and SOMEONE keeps buying them for some reason even tho newer cheaper better options are a thing.
