Asus ROG G751JU VS Alienware 15 Laptops

Hey Guys,

So I've been back and forth between these two laptops which both cost 2199.99 CAD.

Since I've been unable to decide, what do you guys think would be a better laptop, I'm just looking for something that will last me a few years and would be able to run every game on high settings, and medium would be fine.

Is the alienware sufficient or for the price go with the Asus?

  1. Best answer
    That is an easy choice, the asus as it has more ram and a better gpu. Also they alieware has a 4k display which means that the laptop will stuggle to play games at that res at the highest settings as they games become more gpu intensive. You also have the issue of scalling as windows don't reall scale well at that res.

    So you'd say that the Asus would last about a few years?

    One of the problems with the Asus, actually the only problem is that it has audio issues which are known to Asus and still nothing has been done about it.

    If you have any other recommendation I'd truly be grateful for them.
  3. You could try one of the clevo laptops as they are good but I have never owned one. What sound issue are you referring to as I don't have any issue with my asus n56vz? Is this only for this model?
  4. This is the problem: http://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?54313

    It's only for this model it seems and while Asus came up with a temporary fix, it's still not done yet.

    Maybe I should just go with a Macbook Pro 15" Retina since I'll most probably only pay League of Legends on it.
  5. If you are only going to play lol, then you don't really need a powerful laptop unless you want to max out the settings which I would not recommend unless you have good wifi.

    I wouldn't go with macs for gaming as they are not made for it and will not last very long.
