Which of these is the better choice?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I´m going to Sweden in 3 weeks time, and while there I´ll be buying a laptop to be gaming on, since I want one and it´s cheper in Sweden compared to Denmark.
I´ve found four within my price range which is about 15k swedish crowns.

the first one is http://www.webhallen.com/se-sv/hardvara/152978-asus_g75vw-t1031v-i7-3610qm-8gb-750gb-17.3-gtx670m_3gb-bt-win_7_hp
the second one is http://www.webhallen.com/se-sv/hardvara/155135-msi_gt70_0nc-029ne-i7-3610qm-8gb-750gb-17.3-gtx670m_3gb-win_7_hp
the third one is http://www.webhallen.com/se-sv/hardvara/147340-toshiba_qosmio_x770-13h_i7-2670qm-8gb-1tr-17.3_full_hd_120hz-blu-ray-gtx560m_1.5gb-w7hp
and the fourth one is http://www.webhallen.com/se-sv/hardvara/148943-asus_g74sx-i7-2670qm-8gb-750gb-17.3-gtx560m_3gb-bt-win_7_hp

I´ll mainly be playing diablo 3 ,guildwars 2 and torchlight 2 for the moment.
so which one would be the better choice. hardware wise.

Battery time is ofcourse not of any importance since it will always be plugged in to power plug.

Really no one ?
The question comes down to which is the better CPU and GPU.
I have no idea, and google shows different result depending on which site you go to.

Surely someone on OCN must know smile.gif ?

i7 is better than i5. 6 series is better than 5. Laptop versions of hardware are not same as desktop, they are weaker.


1=2, just different manufacturers.
I wouldn't go with Toshiba because I dislike them and blu-ray is useless. You, however, pay to them for licence of that being installed. Hence the price difference.

I'd personally go with something that got i5 cpu, ssd and dedicated gpu.

1/2 are the best and the same, but I'd probably go with the ASUS over MSI...

570 and 575m are 40nm Fermi, not 22nm Kepler.

I would go for the first one or the second one. For me personally I love Asus and I love there G series cooling. The laptop will stay cool, and it is relevantly quite while gaming,

The first and second are virtually identical. Between them, I would go with the Asus. It looks like the body is more compact, the MSI has all kinds of plastic "flare.' I've had gaming laptops like that and it makes them irritatingly bulky to carry. Beyond that, Asus has pretty good driver support for their laptops, not sure about MSI's. Strongly agree with DiNet, get an SSD in there as soon as you can.
