6770M or 555M? - Page 4

post #31 of 72
oh sell sig rig and netbook for a gaming laptop? Bad move imo... Gaming laptops don't last very long due to extreme heat exposure, they're heavy, and battery ain't that great for mobility.

My laptop is gaming capable, with a GPU that roughly matches an 8800GT and weighs ~5.5lb and have a battery life of 4 hours max(at the settings I like with wireless and music playing). As for heat, well I can't argue against that other than cooling mods.

Then you can't compare them. Comparing company A to the average company is useless. Unless you have have a direct comparison it's unfair to take a guess and assume company B is absolutely worst than A without proof.
Yes, you can. They said how all the companies stand and what their positions were. They also made a chart comparing each in many sections.

Seriously, stop trying to justify HP's horrible reliability. You want a quality laptop, you buy from ASUS, Lenovo, Toshiba, or boutique builders like Sager.

Apple is good, but they're too expensive.
I can't

I was originally thinking of a Sager because the price/performance ratio was very attractive, but the least expensive laptop they offered with dual HDD support was around $1600, so I gave up.

Asus's laptops at around the $1000 pricepoint all had 1366x768 resolution screens, which I can't bear, because I'm sick of the 1280x800 on my netbook. I want more screen real estate.

So sir, if you find me a laptop that has
  • i7 2630QM
  • 1600x900 resolution display
  • Dual HDD support
  • Decent game support, (StarCraft II on High would be nice)

I'm sold.

Uh, Dell pull on top because they had better customer service. Which doesn't matter if the warranty expires, which seems to be when most problems arises. And I've dealt with the new HP customer service, they were actually pretty useful and nice. They even let me have a replacement HDD sent my way before I send mine in. Even if we're going by the chart, they both were ranked average. Average(A) vs Average(B)=Average(A) wins? I'm sorry but I fail to see the logic in that.

Dual HDD you'll have to look at the ASUS G53.

Your experiences won't dictate what other users encounter. End of. HP is the least reliable laptop manufacturer and they have horrible customer service.
