Help me find a new laptop? - Page 2

Screw the battery I'm plugged in most of the time anyways even on the supposed 6hr batteries ( I really do wonder how they run those laptops XD to get 6hrs) But I DON'T want ATi >v< especially if the GTX 400M series can do F@H i.e. are considered Fermi like their desktop counterparts.

Well if the only SB i7 laptop Best Buy has now is any indication they are going to be grossly overpriced. Hmm I may be able to use that angle to get it cheaper...

theres an origin laptop with Dual 2GB GDDR5 NVIDIA GeForce GTX 485M.

probably doubles your price range... if not triple... but it's a "beast" as requested ;-)

Yeah... I've been trying to get the title changed...
Basically I want a beast without breaking the bank and if that means getting an older i7 I don't mind I just need performance, and since they're using an external GPU anyways the energy efficiency is a moot point. I don't care if it uses a few more watts.

Now I think of it I don't use my BD drive much anymore... so I'd be ok withoput one if it's a good GPU under 1200 and 6.5 ish pounds.
Opps clicked wrong button.

Thats a clevo, you can get the same thing from a sager reseller for A LOT less.

You wont get a good deal on a high end laptop from bestbuy unless you work there.
I'd get the sager 8130 and call it a day. If you need to get rid of the $800 at best buy, and have nothing else you need, just buy games or giftcards. Then use those as gifts or when you need to buy something that bestbuy doesnt markup insanely high.

Hmm... I'll make some calls then. Anything at CompUSA you recommend? Even Newegg? BestBuy might match the price if it's at CompUSA as their stores are next to each other (they did last I tried so it's possible)
Also aren't some of the first gen i5's supposed to be as good as some of the i7's or was that only in desktops?

For the love of god, PLESE dont get a vaio. They are a rip off.
Edit: they also arent beastly. If you want something beastly, might I suggest possibly an ASUS?
