Ok so im thinking of buying a laptop from XoticPC.com but i have a few questions.

I have two contenders at the moment but i need to know which one is the better buy.

Contestant #1

The XoticPC: FORCE PBL21 (Built on Compal PBL21)

System specs: (AS CONFIGURED)

- 15.6” FHD 16:9 LED Backlit Wide screen (1920x1080) Super Clear Glare Type Screen

Contestant #2

The ExoticPC: Sager NP6165 (Built on Clevo W150ER)

System Specs: (AS CONFIGURED)

- 15.6” FHD 16:9 LED Backlit Wide screen (1920x1080) Super Clear Glare Type Screen

So these are the two that im looking at.... Which do i get?

Contestant #1 has a 2GB video card (But its GDDR3)
And a better wireless card built in.

Contestant#2 has a 1GB video card (But its GDDR5)


Contestant #1 has the SECOND Generation I7

Contestant #2 has the THIRD Generation I7

BOTH COMPUTERS WILL HAVE WINDOWS 7 64BIT



My plans are to use the PC for college classes.

With a little Diablo 3 or WoW on the side. (Guild wars 2 in the future)

Will i get decent Frames for these games?



If i have missed any information you may need please let me know!

Thanks guys!

The second one looks better in every way, don't worry about that extra VRAM. 1GB is all you need for all but the most demanding games at 1080P.
