Overkill gaming laptop! - Page 2

post #11 of 35
I had a friend who was a trucker , he put a desktop computer in his rig on the top bunk , his monitor was on a swivel and could be viewed from the drivers seat or by sitting on the lower bunk, a good desktop gaming rig is less than half the price of a laptop. they make Lan party small gaming cases for people that move there gaming rigs frequently
I have a 15.6" sager 8150 gaming laptop I have had it for 1 and a half years. I absolutely love it , it never gets hot
sager also has a dual GPU 17" gaming laptop with the option for a hexacore or extreme edition cpu at a cost of 2400 to 2900
Sager is a company that sells Clevo laptops with there name on it . Clevo is a leader in the Laptop market, they have been around for almost 30 years
I would not bother with Asus, Alienware is a little expensive and a little too blingy for my taste, Sager makes a great durable laptop for less money , you cannot kill this laptop. also sager allows you to do upgrades on CPU,GPU,HDD,Ram without voiding the warranty.

I needed a smaller form factor because I am a frequent flyer
in a rig with a sleeper cab , I would just run a power converter and a small desktop gaming case , you can then get a nice 24 inch monitor on an extendable and swivel mount

I have been looking at Xoticpc and Origin, thx again for all feedback, it will be a toss up between the Sager and Origin. They both give 3 storage options, for gaming what would be best route? Something like above comment?

I'm going to chime in and say i actually had a great experience with dell, I was 2 months out of warrenty and they sent me a replacement keyboard for my m17x r3 (when the keyboard died) for free, My build and arrival time was 1 week from the order, And while everyones saying get sli 680s, My vote will be for crossfire 7970m's, I've just upgraded to a 7970m in my m17x r3 and it works like a charm, Easily comparable to a Top-midrange Desktop gpu

Sager NP9570, ok pretty much sold on this model. Now What would you guys do for wireless card? CPU? and i'll be running sli 680 so would you suggest the overclocking upgrade from xoticPC. And since it's a gaming only/dvd laptop what for storage? I like the thermal cooling and cooper cooling options as well and you guys are right this is probably my best option cause it can be upgraded down the road. Thanks for suggesting Sager and XoticPC.

Since money is not an option: Why not go with 32 GB 1600 Mhz memory, 240 Gb Msata ssd for caching, dual ssd's in raid, bigfoot netwrok killer with bluetooth, performance thermal paste, copper cooling upgrades, and let them overclock the system for you. If I had the money I could spend 1000's on a laptop. You are only limited by your funds. As far as the CPU goes; if you don't mind spending the cash, get the best I7 they offer.

I am getting the Sager 9150. For 1260.00, I cannot beat the configuration with the price. Glad you settled on Sager. Oh by the way, be aware the stock sound system in the Sager does not have much bass, in fact the speakers are rather tinny. Get a high end pair of headphones and/or put 5.1 surround in the truck and plug into that for total sound immersion when gaming or watching movies.
