Advice on gaming laptop choice?

2 posts in this topic

Hey guys,

Going to be living out of hotels/temporary apartments for awhile.

Any advice on what would work best for this? Though I work in IT I don't keep up with the newest hardware anymore....have listed a few options I have seen...if anyone else has a better idea fire away!

Alienware 17" M17x from Dell Outlet - $1,419


From Tigerdirect:

Toshiba Satellite with Intel COre i5 - w/ Nvidia GeForce GT 330m - $929


Toshiba Qosmio 18.4" w/ Core i5 - NVIDIA GeForce GTS 360M - $1,049


Toshiba Qosmio 18.4" w/ Core i7 - NVIDIA GeForce GTS 360M - $1,329


Any tips on the performance difference I might see between the Core i5 or Core i7? I am overwhelmed with choice!!!

ASUS introduced its G73JH-X1 gaming laptop right at the start of CES this year, but it unfortunately didn't have much to say about pricing or availability at the time. That's now changed in a big way, however, as the laptop is available right now (at Newegg, at least) for the not-so-crazy price of $1,449.99. That will get you a 17.3-inch 1920 x 1080 display, a Core i7 720QM processor, 8GB of RAM, a 500GB hard drive, ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5870 graphics, and a DVD burner, among other more standard fare -- all in a suitably angular, eight-pound package, of course.
