post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
i am looking though the asus laptops and was wondering if a NON G series asus laptop would work good for gaming.
any idea as to what asus would be the best for gaming?
price somewhere around 1000

Whats got you avoiding the G-series laptops, if I may ask?

Also, is there anything you definitely want to have or prefer?

What are some example games you play, and would you definitely want to be able to max them out?

And are you tied to Asus as far as a brand goes?

He's prob trying to stay away because they're expensive and the G74 is HUMONGOUS.

I would say check out xoticpc.com

mostly the price. i rrealise that the g series are some of the best gaming laptops but i most likely wont need that much power.
i was really looking at this
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16834230027

but i was looking for something less.
this particular G53 is SO CLOSE to what i want

i would prolly be playing minecraft. CoD. and Crysis and warhead. and fall out
it doesnt have to be maxed bout. but high settings with a good frame rate


xoticpc is what made me thing about other asus laptops.

custimize a laptop that could be just right. hopefully something powerful and keep up with games and be close to $1000

sager would prolly be fine too.
i am kind of a n00b with it comes to computer stuff so if you could point me in the right direction it would be great
