Question

Posted

No replies in the gaming thread... bah.

 

So I'm going to splurge on a gaming laptop for the wife. She's biting at the bit for one with EQ Next coming out.

I was looking at the Razer Blade Pro (it small, light, and has that groovy screen/touchpad thing) but it's not

upgradeable. I'd like to have more memory and hard drive space.

 

There are a couple of "custom" sites that let you have artwork/paintjobs on the laptop, so that would be nifty.

So far: FalconNW and Origin come to mind. Any others I should look into?

What does she play? Why not just make her a desktop? Easier to upgrade.

 

Ibuypower is pretty good, too.

Cant go wrong with the Acer "Ferarri" Series, Alienware is always a good choice as well, MSI does pretty good ones too, Razer not so sure, I mean they are super thin, super light, and pretty powerful, but at the prices they want, you would be better off just buying a macbook pro lol

I tried gaming on a MacBook Pro. Gets way too hot, noisy fan, and uncomfortable on the wrists.

Sager makes some powerful, although ugly, laptops for decent prices. I was thinking about picking up a Sager NP8265 from XOTIC PC.

Hello,

 

A few manufacturers that have gaming laptop sections on their websites:

CNet has some pretty reliable reviews, but I always cross reference if anything.

Also, take into consideration whatever warranties are offered at the places you shop. I prefer desktop computers for PC gaming, but if a laptop is a must, then I personally wouldn't want to spend $1000+ on what could essentially become a brick if something were to go out that's not easily replaceable. Just food for thought.

True. A friend of mine told me how Toshiba repaired his laptop which he dropped on the ground by accident.
