New gaming laptop.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I'm looking for a new, affordable (at least under 1200$). I have given this one a look:
http://mobilityupdate.com/notebooks/...-y560p-review/
Do any of you guys have some experience with this one, or another recommendation?
My preferences is that it shouldn't be to loud, I'd like it to have a quite long batterytime whilst being able to play a little high end. I know that's direct opposites, but I'd like to go for something in between. Please give me a little advice here! (;

Thanks!

Just stay away from Dell. I bought a Dell XPS Gen 2 laptop from them, and it fried the GPU several times. It was not worth the $3,250 I paid for it. Never again Dell.

This is the best you're gonna get for that price:

Sager NP5160:

15.6" 1920x1080 LED Display
Core i7 2630QM Quad-Core
NVIDIA GeForce GT 540M with Optimus
4GB DDR3 1333MHz
500GB 7200RPM HDD
Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
5.7 Pounds
Matte Plastic
3 year warranty

$950

Pros and cons compared to the Lenovo:

Pros:

GPU is a decent amount faster
Screen is a million times better
You can actually buy it (Lenovo appears as deactivated in Newegg and Amazon)
Hard Drive is a good amount faster
Weighs less
Better quality chassis (no glossy plastic on palm rests and bezel)

Cons:

Speakers are worse

Others:

Battery life is the same (4 hours when web browsing).

Unless you NEED to get a Lenovo, I'd say it's a no-brainer.

I have no relationship to Lenovo whatsoever, so thanks for the help! I've got a speakersystem already, so speakers are a minor requirement.
