which laptop to buy?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Well I've found this nice laptop at MicroCenter, can't find anything better

http://www.microcenter.com/single_pr...uct_id=0366053


And these are my fallback choices

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16834200302
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...324&CatId=4938


I've heard good things about the Asus G74/G73 series and I think it's a pretty good find.
Does anyone else know of any laptops with similar or better specs for the same price?

Here's what I'm looking for

  • An i7-2630QM (quad core i7) or better
  • 6GB of RAM 1333 or better/more
  • Hard drive space/speed does not matter
  • A big screen - at least 17 inches
  • A good dedicated GPU - at least a 540M, but preferably GTX460m/560m or better
  • Performance in general
  • Good vents/fans
Here's what I'm NOT looking for
  • Portability
  • Lightweight (the heavier it is, the better)
  • Battery life
  • Compact screen
  • AMD processors

What is your budget?

Check out http://www.xoticpc.com/. Plenty of good Sager's that fit your criteria.

Specifically the Sager NP8170.
