Best sub 17" gaming Laptop under $1200? W350SS?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Trying to shrink my budget down a little and spend $1000-1200 on the best product I can get for WoW and Diablo 3, maybe a little LoL HoN and HotS too. I play shooters sometimes but not nearly as much as WoW/D3, the machine is pretty much going to be a way to play WoW at a friends house. This is specifically for work and for the GF's house as I have a great gaming desktop at home. It has to be 13-15" due to portability, and at GF's it may be plugged into a 50" TV. I've always preferred smaller and lighter machines as long as they don't overheat, my last laptop was an m11x and I loved the size of it. The W350 and W230 seem to fit this perfectly and come in at around $1189.

My requirements:
USA
New Only
13-15"
$1000-$1200
1080p
Gaming (diablo/wow)
Windows 7 preferred but not a must
SSD is a plus, I have no use for more than 250gb HDD.
Online or in store

I've been looking at Y50, W230SS and W350SS.

I've been looking at Y50, W230SS and W350SS.

Hmm, if you do GT 755M SLI on Lenovo Y510p, it perform better than GTX 860m by 11% percent.

However, it might get hot and reduce battery life, but it might perform better than GTX 860m IMO. Correct me if I am wrong.

It really depend on you. Do you want a gaming laptop that is a single GPU that perform close to GT 755m SLI while it is more expensive, slightly better battery life and cooling? Or do you want a gaming laptop that is SLI GPU that perform better than GTX 860m while it is cheaper, use more battery life and cooling?

As for, W230SS and W350SS, I don't see any much different because it has a same GPU, CPU, RAM, resolution and etc. Only difference is the look for the laptop.
