You realize the unit he is looking at is a clevo? I have not known many clevo units to use a chipset limited to the dual core i7's, especially so when he has a 4710mq as an upgrade option...
Really in terms of CPU grunt you are safe with most choices if you stay in the main mobile CPUs. The reason to go for i5 is the ability for a turbo clock to boost speed dynamically according to the load that is present on the system. I have some things to take care of right now and away from the computer, it would be wrong for me to spew out anything for you without doing a little homework first. Hardware wise i5's are pretty good for the purpose you have for it,...
MQ is socketedHQ is not
When you include a dGPU worth having, the budget takes a dump more often than not. Its outside of your budget, but as reference this is the minimum I would go for... http://www.bestbuy.com/site/msi-gp60-leopard-15-6-laptop-intel-core-i5-8gb-memory-750gb-hard-drive-black/8711054.p?id=1219361179405&skuId=8711054&st=categoryid$pcmcat247400050000&cp=1&lp=6 http://www.notebookcheck.net/MSI-GP60-2PEi585-Notebook-Review.118846.0.html The second link is a review of it, it can...
Might be difficult coming from Best Buy, any brand preferences? Whats the need for the GPU? parallel processing?
If he is looking at MQ variants then he likely has the ability to upgrade the CPU later on the road, though the model in question would need to be known to confirm it.
While to say the 850m would be the limiting factor would be some what true, it is not incapable of gaming by any means. http://www.notebookcheck.net/NVIDIA-GeForce-GTX-850M.107795.0.html For your reference, I believe most review sites test with AA enabled, disabling AA would let the 850m shine with its limited bus. Will it get you 60 FPS in all games, no. However it will allow for a enjoyable experience if your on a 15.6" 1080 panel. I dont have experience with a 17"...
Looks like your not looking hard enough, or cherry picking, or were not around to see original published reviews often times amended with revised reviews when faults are found in original units. We have advertisements here as well, its likely a huge reason why the forums still exist, I guess anything we write here must be shills as well
The reactive typing is by far the most attractive ability of the keyboard, are there mods that can enable that function on other keyboards?
What stepping do you have? You may not be even able to push further than 3.7-3.8 Also make sure your motherboard is safe for overclocking, there is a thread in our forums regarding that as well, forum search has failed me though....
