Gaming notebook!?

Hey guys! Im looking for a gaming notebook that can play games around medium - high setting. I have a homebuilt gaming desktop that I use, but since i travel so often, I am looking for a notebook to take around. My budget is around $1,500 and I want to get the most bang for my buck as I can. I was looking at alienware(which seems overpriced) and also looking and some Asus ones as well!

Any help would be greatly appretiated!

Thanks,
Cody

  1. I got an XPS 15 for $1587 out the door. I got an employee discount and found a coupon online. I plan on running a VM and/or dual booting. I too travel on occasion and I may have to process a ream of documents for OCR on a processor core or two while I blow some brains out against a wall at 1600 resolution. Just saying.

  2. You shoud have a look at Maingear, Origin, Digital Storm, they offer better value-for-money then overpriced Alienwares.
  3. Hello buckbuck_2;

    Check the options over @ XoticPC for customized gaming laptops
    Asus, MSI and Sager are featured. You can customize a laptop to your requirements (or your budget)
    15" Sager NP8150 or the 17" Sager NP8170 would be good places to start looking.
  4. Asus is pretty solid, but they have some things they could improve upon "support" wise. I would go with this HP high performance laptop, goo.gl/JsEDn this one is going to be on sale the next three days.
