HP dv6t vs. Asus G60JX vs. Envy 14?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
edit: Also, I know that there is another post comparing the dv6t and the G60jx, but I just didn't find it very conclusive..

Hey guys, I'm looking for a gaming laptop to replace my current one. I still have one more year in college, but I'm not going to be taking my laptop to class unless I can get some really good battery life.

I still play games, but not too many on the PC anymore. Having a gaming laptop is still significant to me though. I'm stuck between the following two laptops, but I'm also considering waiting for the Envy 14...

HP Pavilion dv6t Select Edition customizable Notebook PC at $755 TOTAL
* Genuine Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
* Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-430M Dual Core processor (2.26GHz, 3MB L2 Cache) with Turbo Boost up to 2.53GHz
* 4GB DDR3 System Memory (2 Dimm)
* FREE Upgrade to 500GB 7200RPM SATA Hard Drive with HP ProtectSmart Hard Drive Protection
* 1GB ATI Mobility Radeon(TM) HD 5650 switchable graphics
* 15.6" diagonal High Definition LED HP Brightview Widescreen Display (1366x768)
* No TouchScreen
* SuperMulti 8X DVD+/-R/RW with Double Layer Support
* Intel Wireless-N Card with Bluetooth
* Full-size island-style backlit keyboard with HP TrueVision Webcam + Fingerprint Reader
* 6 Cell Lithium Ion Battery (standard)
* Microsoft(R) Office Starter 2010
* HP Home & Home Office Store in-box envelope

vs.

Asus G60JX

http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Asus+-+L...&skuId=9736955 at $783 TOTAL.

notable differences:
HP has bluetooth (worth about $20-25) and better price, Asus has better gpu. I'm gonna get a bluetooth headset for my phone, and being able to sync it to my computer for vent would be pretty neat. I can't customize bluetooth on the Asus...

Since I'd be saving more money on the HP, I could definitely opt for a better battery giving the HP the power advantage at even prices-- would it be worth it?

What do you guys think? Should I get either of these? Will the Envy 14 be better than both?

Thanks!

then envy 14 will be better, but itll also cost around 1400$.. i think thats a little out of your price range.

that asus will rape the hp in games.. bluetooth isnt that important, so i would say if it was between one or the other definietly go with the asus.

if a 1400 budget is available id recommend this: http://www.cyberpowerpc.com/system/X...7700_Notebook/

itll probably rape the hp envy 14 in games. the envy 15 has a 5830, which isnt anywhere near as strong as a 5870, so im guessing the 14 will have about the same. definietly go with the cyberpower one if you have that much money to spend
