Best gaming laptop for around $1,000? - Page 2

post #11 of 42
If you want a gaming laptop than the ASUS G Series G53JW-XN1. Its a little bulky but it has a lot of power. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16834220921The nividia 460m is faster than the 555m based on what I seen and Asus makes good computers. Here is a link for more laptops with the nvidia 460m even one taht is less than $700 bucks! http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...=1&PageSize=20

So he mentions he wants a $1000 laptop, and you recommend a $1200 one? Does not compute.

Hands down Asus G73. Especially the older JH model. You can find them for around $850 refurbished or $1000 new if you're lucky. Loads of performance, and 3 hour battery life.

Is the GT 555 a good card at 1920x1080?
Preferably I would like the laptop to have Native 1366x768, but it's hard to find a decent one. lol

2) The benefits of an i7 vs. C2Q will last MUCH longer (in terms of being able to handle current titles) than dual CFs.
3)Speaking of CF, I'm not too sure how much benefit those would serve over the 555 after you take into account the massive CPU performance gap.
A 555m is equal to a GTS 250 on the desktop side. CrossfireX 3870s are slower than a desktop GTS 250. Take your pick.

Mind you a 555m is only marginally slower than my 460m. And it's better to have a GPU limited setup as games tend to allocate the settings higher than what your CPU can handle, thus while your GPU can do it, the CPU can't keep up. I face a couple problems here. But it's minor at best.

Native 1366x768 is horrible. Trust me. I have to deal with it in my laptop and I just prefer to connect it to my monitor because 1680x1050>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>1366x768. You'll be able to play games at 1920x1080, but you'll have to lower settings to Medium. At High, you're looking at 1600x900. With the 460M you're looking at Medium/High settings combo at 1920x1080, but you'll have to get a much larger and heavier laptop with no battery life, like ASUS G53 and G73. Take your pick.
