Gaming Laptop

Postby Voislav » Thu Jul 14, 2011 12:24 pm

Hello,

I was looking to purchase a budget new rig and was highly attracted to the new Alienware R3 M11X that Dell was offering. I specifically want it to be able to play League of Legends, but I also need it to have a high battery life, lowish heat for my teaching job and writing (I also like the HDMI out). I wanted to see if anyone had any advice on comparable, but less expensive models than the Alienware as budget & use is more important to me than a simple brand name.

I'd also like to stay under $700.

Any help would be very appreciated :)

Thanks,

George

A little more than 700 but you get a normal CPU and not the ULV. If you're a student you get a free x box.

According to your budget based on your requirements will be typical so for that purpose do one thing purchase a laptop which is suitable for your budget and align your configuration separately

Gaming laptop? Realy?
- A gaming laptop is not 13.3" but rather 17" and up!
- Gaming laptops have at least FullHD screens or 4K.
- Gaming laptops have at least 860M in them.
- Gaming laptops have at least 8GB of RAM but rather 16GB or 32GB! 4GB is barely enough for surfing the net!
- Gaming laptops usually have a double fan cooler to be able to manage the heat!

This acer is just a shitty little laptop, is nothing comparable to a gaming laptop. The best gaming laptops for less than Alienwares are from ASUS and MSI and if you want comparable performance but cheaper than you choose Lenovo.

Lenovo: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00K6ZIO2K?colid=HHALBEHZXRUK&coliid=I31O8EXFGWOGWK&ref_=wl_it_dp_o_pC_S_ttl - refurbished and used you can get close to your budget but forget about buying a NEW GAMING laptop for less than $700!

Holy thread revival. I don't think you know what you're talking about. Did you not notice that post was from 2011! An yes a 13" can be a gaming laptop. My Acer 4820TG held its own.

- A gaming laptop is not 13.3" but rather 17" and up! Wrong Sager has 13.3 that is more than capable of gaming.
- Gaming laptops have at least FullHD screens or 4K. Wrong! Gaming laptops pushing a 4k resolution. Yea no laptop can do that now. It's easier to game at a low res.
- Gaming laptops have at least 860M in them. Wrong again.
- Gaming laptops have at least 8GB of RAM but rather 16GB or 32GB! 4GB is barely enough for surfing the net! Wrong! I have a Windows tablet with 2GB runing Windows 10 that browses the internet just fine. Hell I can even play some older games on it.
- Gaming laptops usually have a double fan cooler to be able to manage the heat! Hey you got one right.

Thanks for reminding why I don't bother with these forums anymore.

Wow, what a reply. I don't give a damn if you play on your tablet with tetris or super mario brothers but don't call it a gaming laptop please. A gaming laptop IS full HD nowadays and many are 4K! Of course FullHD wouldn't make sense on a tablet oryour phone but I'm talking about a GAMING laptop! It's a fact. It shows you don't read these forums or any other, since you are clueless what the standard is for a GAMING laptop! It should be able to play ALL new games at an acceptable framerate, for that you need a GTX860 and up and they are usualy 17" and up. I don't give a damn if you play on your phone - it will not make it a gaming laptop.
