High Budget Laptop or Mini-itx - Page 2

post #11 of 15
Thread Starter 
The Clevo laptop looks like an interesting buy, desktop replacement laptops would be to category to look in since there are really only two places outside of my room that I'd be able to use it. I think im going to compare price points to those and a full mini itx build. It's a good point about portability though. I could get lower end parts since all I would want to do is max out 1080p for current games.

The one thing that makes me hesitant for a laptop is the keyboard, I know a few people with high end laptops and the keyboard component is quite low end. Though you could solve it with your own keyboard ive never seen people use an external keyboard on a laptop.

My MSi has a very disappointing keyboard, the Sager/clevo ones seem ok though. I run mine with an external monitor at home, so I also have an external keyboard.

TBH there is not much point in having a laptop unless you need to be able to use it on the go. Outside using the laptop at home, I only use it at school regularly, I take it to a friends house every few weeks, but the monitor I have is pretty easy to pack away, had I known more when I bought it I would be running a desktop right now, and maybe a small laptop/ultrabook for school work.

Since you are unlikely to be using the computer outside your room I think the ITX build would be the better option.

If you go laptop give the folks over at Falcon Northwest a look, they have very nice systems.

If you go the build it your own, you should be able to go ITX and get a 780 Ti in there without much problem.

Thanks for all the suggestions guys! I'm definitely going to look for a itx build now, a few other people around here have some so lan parties are possible. I gave the laptop brands a look over and they seem to be really great but I can't seem to justify it since I can't really use it anywhere.
