Mobile, Some gaming, Server and web admin in 1!

post #1 of 38
Thread Starter 
Title explains it all. I am looking for a nice laptop obviously a good performer that is able to handle some gaming. I prefer a nice i5 or i7.

I would do some gaming and possibly a little video editing. So atleat 4gb of ram 6gb prefered.

Any ideas for sub 1200?

I Have seen the g73 at the local bestbuy. Its just the 17" makes it hard to toss into my backpack and tot with me and just pull it out at any time.
I would love a 15" but if need will go 17"

This would be a good choice.

http://www.xoticpc.com/sager-np8150-...wconfigure=yes

Make sure to browse through that site though. Many options to choose from.

Its a tad over 1200, but whats an extra $70

There's a G53 with i7 and a GTX460M.

But if you can, get the G73.
That thing has some serious horsepower, and some dope styling.

I own a 17 incher and dam is the extra screen real estate nice but lugging a desktop replacement around isn't all that its cracked up to be. Not to mention a 17 in screen sucks battery life like and alien sucks brains through a straw.

I would say Sager is among the best. I have never personally owned one, but I have wanted to haha, no money. I also hear Xoticpc's customer service is like a 12 on a scale of 10.

That seems just right for you. I was actually just about to post that.

I know that you mentioned "Mobile". The GPU setup is Optimus, so you may have better battery life than expected.

Also, you may want to upgrade the wireless card. It does not cost very much, and it may help you significantly with weak wireless connections. The higher end wifi cards use more antennas IIRC.

Also check this out for a 460M vs 540M comparison.

http://www.xoticpcforums.com/showthread.php?p=52924

Seems like the 460M is 15-20% faster.

So if you favor mobility, go with the 540M. Otherwise, 460M is definitely the way to go.
