Good gaming laptop?
Posted 28 September 2012 - 06:36 AM
I kinda wanna snag a gaming laptop. Are there any decent ones out there? Or is heat still a major issue with most of them? I did a little searching and Samsung seems to have a decent one with its Samsung Series 7 gamer laptop. I havent seen many reviews but most seem to be relatively positive. Is that a decent one to get? Id like to keep it around about $2,0000 or under preferably
Is that samsung a decent bet? Any brands i should check out? I heard Alienwares are decent but that they have a lot of heat and other issues since they got bought out by Dell. Should i look at ACers or anything else? Just looking for some suggestions and feedback from those of you who probably know more about this than I do.
Note: this would be used pretty much for Gaming and watching media. I had my old laptop hooked up to my HT. I watched anime and movies on the bigscreen with it constantly so id like to have a VGA/HDMI out or something for that. Heat is a big issue for me since my old one died from heat issues too

You could get a nice XPS for under 1,500 but dell seems to only put midu range cards in them. Alienware does come in 2k flavors also. Dell has a reputation, but are not the best value when it comes to high specs.
Asus Republic of Gamers series is one of the best mainstream power options out there, but I'm not sure if they have overcome a run of problems they had going (BSODs)
Lately I've noticed Sager running some pretty competitive prices(compared to the past) AND they offer some serious customization options. You could get a nice set up for under 2,000 including a GTX 675M, maybe better, with 1080p.
IBUYPOWER and CyberPowerPC have awesome deals but seemingly sketchy Customer Service, . A half hour on resellerratings will leave you wary of them. I think their customer service may have improved recently, but check them out yourself, too much to cover.
There are many.more botique options, I suggest buying a copy or flipping through MaximumPC to get a list from the ads. It'll be a good starting point, and most ads list a ton of options

I think its between the sammy or a Sager right now. Sager does have some decent deals going. Are they a reputable company? Ive heard their name a few times. My concern is the lack of detailed info on their site... I.E. whats the difference between the monitors? One thing i like about the Sammy is i hear it has a killer screen

Great 17inch lappys with gt 650m. I have the 15r version and its very quiet, very cool(heat wise), but needs to be pluggedi n constantly.
Also I got a refurbished laptop from dell, looked exactly like new.
