a PC gamer will NEVER buy a laptop. even if the spec was amazing, you get the same spec desktop for half the price. plus who wants to use a 17" screen anymore?

maybe somebody that doesn't want to cart around a bunch of crap to lan parties or people that travel a lot that want to play games on the move. I would love a gaming laptop...but i don't want to pay an a$$load for one.

I'd actually pick that up, only because I travel a lot and having a gaming capable laptop is very welcome when I'm thousands of miles away from home and I have to carry a laptop with me to begin with. Airports, planes, and hotel conference rooms are a lot less boring then. But I'm thinking of upgrading to one of the new Alienware books though.

Gaming laptops sucks imo. It cant have the same hardware as a PC and it gets hot as hell

i dont think id ever buy somthing like this because
1) It has a HD DVD drive
2) Its a laptop
3) It has an outdated graphics card

gta_cb3833d ago

1) thats your opinion but you wont notice the difference BluRay vs HD-DVD
2)..... if your not going to buy a laptop then why say no.1/3
3) it is one of the best GPUs you can get in a laptop.

but yeah i still had to press agree because when comparing it to a desktop PC you are wasting your money on this UNLESS you have a reason like traveling etc

I wouldn't call 8600gt outdated. it runs bioshock and gears. Theres a laptop in Europe that has 8800M.

I am into PC gaming but have never owned a laptop. Are the higher end GPUs for the laptops comparable to the higher end PC desktop GPUs?? Or are they even available in laptop versions for that matter??

Rooted_Dust3833d ago

I believe they said this GPU would run Crysis at about Medium settings. That also means that you could run most other games at near high settings.

But overly expensive. The brand name really inflates the price, you can go to sites like Cyberpowerpc or Ibuypower and get a much better laptop for much less.
