Also whats the difference between aggressive styling on a notebook vs a desktop with LEDs and an aggressively styled case?

I would also like to mention, Sager offers several different level of screen for their notebooks and alienware I believe is putting IPS screens in at least some of their new redesigned laptops.

I normally game with mine on my desk with an external monitor keyboard and mouse, but it is nice to be able to pack it up and plop down on the couch and game while football or watching a movie.


This isn't directed at you Fate so dont take it that way.

But I really cant believe some of the comments being made on this site about notebooks, the ignorance is pathetic.

1) How sure are you that laptop PSUs are any good? One thing for sure they are always running without any headroom
2) To properly compare pick a cheap motherboard that doesn't have OC'ing features or massive heatsinks. Laptop motherboards aren't built like that
3) Monitors ... Oh please. 22" is just so much bigger than 17 or 18"
4) And watercooling? Laptops cooling systems usually run at throttling edge or it's really heavy, watercooling gives so much massive headroom and even aftermarket air coolers will give you massive headroom ON STOCK

1: Laptop PSUs are good. Any they do have headroom. People wouldn't be able to overvolt their 780M SLI otherwise.
2: That board was cheap, one of the cheapest of the chipset.
3: I was comparing resolution. It wouldn't be fair to compare a 17 720p desktop display to a 1080p laptop display. 22 was the smallest 1080p panel I could find.
4: You clearly don't know much about the cooling of these laptops. The 4700MQ on these machines wont exceed 75 degrees. Same with the GPUs.

Ok, even take out the H80, thats still a great compromise. You're getting the power of the most powerful desktop GPU in a laptop.


Also, where did I say no compromise? I made a list of compromises!

Also never buy gaming lappys with 1080p resolution  ... knowing that lappy GPU,s sux either way ... atleast on 720p you have chance to still enjoy games on higer details .... on 1080p even gtx660m + gets pushed to limits.

Have you not read through this thread at all? I just posted a laptop with the power of a Titan. Are you trying to tell me a Titan can't push 1080p? lol

A GTX 765m (Pretty much the new mid range GPU) Is just about as fast as a GTX 650 Ti. It will play just fine at 1080P. Also with my screen being 14" at 1080P(150 PPI a 27" 1440P monitor is 100 PPI.) no way will i need AA so it will be perfect.

Love how ignorant some people can be. Gaming laptops do just fine. As long as you do your research and spend accordingly you can get a beastly laptop. I have a mid range gaming lappy that can play every game out there including crysis 3, and didn't pay a lot for it either.

gaming laptops are short lived in 2 ways

1. upgrading

2. life is much shorter than a desktop - heat confined to a small area is the main culprit.

Yeah you will get someone say my laptop is 100yrs old, at the end, put it down to hrs used biggrin.gif

All high end laptops (Includes the 460m, 470m, 480m, 560m, 570m, 580m, 660m (not all of them but some), 670m, 675m, 670mx, 675mx, 680m, 770m, 780m and all the Quadro cards.)

People who bought a 460m 3 years ago can upgrade to a 780m in most cases. Thats a huge upgrade.

2: Shorter life is not true. Heat dissipation is great on laptops these days. People with NP9150/70s have had 680ms not hit 70 degrees.
The whole heat problem with gaming laptops is just a myth these days. Just clean out the dust once every 2-3 months like you would on a desktop and you'll have no temperature problems.

Asus gaming series usually cannot be upgraded as they use weird cards.


Yeah, i just cleaned out my brother in laws M17X R1 and the whole cpu duct was almost like a couch cushion because it had so much dog hair -_-

First time it had been cleaned out since 1-22-2011

LMAO yeah I was hitting 60 degree idle temps when I bought my P150EM 2nd hand. I don't think what came out could be called dust. It looked like lint from a dryer lol. After the cleaning it doesn't go over 47 when idling.

I hate those G series laptops. The one laptop I would never buy.
