    Default laptop purchase question

    hey pureoc.
    im not very schooled in laptops. i play warcraft which is very cpu intensive and would need a good all around machine for gaming.

    can anyone suggest what brands to check out.

    my budget is around 2,000. i would prefer around 1700-1800 if possible.

    Asus has had some respectable laptops. You'll want a quad core CPU and 58XX graphics. That'll have you set.

    My buddy has this one from Asus. If you decide on this, make sure you get the i7 720QM or 820QM processor. It was much less than $2000. I think he paid around $1200 for it. The product features the best i7 available in laptops and the ATI Mobility™ Radeon® HD 5870, 1G GDDR5 VRAM Graphics which is real good. You can also add up to 8G memory. No need for anything more than this. I do not think there is much more available that is better.


    http://usa.asus.com/product.aspx?P_ID=8je5Ot4HBnKOdT81


    $1429 @ Bestbuy with 8G memory.... Other sites list it at $1600.

    ya, he's right. you want one of those 2 CPUs, they're real core i7s, not clocked up clarkdales.

    compare parts and prices to see which gives you the most for your mnoey.

    they come fully loaded, working out of the box.

    from what i can tell, the alienware is more expensive because of aesthetics. lit up keyboard, case design, etc. the asus one id not showy at all but seems to have all the components.

    the alienware one w/ similar components is about 1,000 more dollars than the asus one. i dont get it.

    it is alienware branded. it's like apple, except you actually get some decent machine for the huge price gap.

    you're paying to have alienware written on it.

    You will be extremely happy with this one. The ATI mobility graphics is best laptops have seen. They can actually game...... Forget Aleinware. Overpriced. This is pretty much as good as it gets.

    Avoid the Best Buy version of the G73, if possible. Check Newegg or Xoticpc. The best buy version is an odd model with a lower quality screen. You want an A1, A2, or A3 model.

    for the 300+ dollar difference, is the diff screen res reallly worth it?

    if i didnt get the better screen, would i notice the difference?

    They're 2 completely different screen types. The BB version has a lower resolution and color gamut. It's quite a noticable difference. There has also been more hardware issues reported with the best buy version, as well.

    My buddy has it and he has absolutely no problems with it. It games wonderful for a laptop.

    He did tell me there are 2 versions. The screen was the difference. His max res is 1600 X 900 and the more expensive is 1900 x 1080. He said his was fine but you may want the better screen... Good catch Z.......

    Best buy does this with vendors. They grab a screaming model, have supplier put in the lower res screen, buy a ton of em' and market it as a G73XXxxx at a lower price point. The average Joe does not catch the screen difference and looks at price. Still a good laptop though and made by Asus.

    It's not that I have anything against Best Buy. I'm just presenting what I have read and observed. Screens may not be a big priority for some, but it is huge for me. If I'm going to be staring at something for a while, I want it to be the best quality offered. Otherwise, the difference in the models are as followed:

    BB Model - lower quality screen, single 500 gb hdd
    X1 - lower quality screen, dual 500gb Hdds
    A1 - high quality screen, dual 500gb hdds, bluray drive, "free" mouse and targus laptop bag
    A2 - same as A1 except no bluray
    A3 - same as others except it uses 2 of the seagate momentus hybrid drives

    As for alienware, you're paying for the name, the fact that they use metal
    casing, and screen qualities. The RGB screen on the m17x is one of the best in the market.

    No Zinos, do not misunderstand me. That's a good call. He can make up his mind and make the best decision for him if he likes the Asus. I never noticed the 2 different screens. I will say, the 1650 X 900 is still good but the 1900 X 1080 will be better.

    16x9 certainly isn't terrible. We have just been spoiled by desktop monitors for so long, anything under 19x10 screws with our heads.
