I'm going crossed eye looking at laptop configurations and could use some suggestions.
What hardware would you get for your dream machine and keep the price reasonable ($2-3000)
Video Card (SLI?)
Memory amount, speed, and brand
Boot SSD size (I assume 260mb)
Hard drive size (I assume 1tb)
which laptop manufacturer has the best cooling system?
I have been leaning toward 18" Alienware or a ASUS laptop, what do you think?
keep your self inclined toward Alienware 18, as it has Intel Core i7-4900MQ processor, and an speed of 2.8 GHz , that makes it rank at the first position in the list. Has a RAM of 32 GB.
But then if you are are want some thing that is within the price range of $2-3000, then go for Alienware 17 where the processor is same to that of the Alienware 18 but then the speed is 2.7 GHz and has a RAM of 16 GB.
Thanks for the suggestions. I think the MSI gaming laptop is in the running. I can spec out a Alienware at http://www.dell.com/us/p/alienware-18/pd.aspx and order it, not so with the MSI and ASUS laptops. I need to find a web site that will let me custom build out the laptop I want instead of a prebuilt...unless I can find one close to....
intel i7-4930MX through i7-4900MQ or one with a sale on i7-4940MX, otherwise the price difference is not worth the small performance increase.
GeForce GTX 880M or some family of the GeForce GTX 8xxM series
Windows 7 64 bit
16 GB DDR3L
120 or 240 GB SSD boot drive and a
1 TB 7200 rpm HDD
Any ideals on a web site to custom build MSI or ASUS???
http://www.notebookcheck.net/Intel-Core-i7-4800MQ-Noteb... here you can check the performance difference of i7 laptop processors. the difference is minimal. a few Mz and 2mb cache. 3000$ is a lot money for a laptop. with about 2000$ and gtx880 you get practicaly the same performance. also 32gb ram is a waste of money. 16gb is still an overkill!
