With my budget, IS thsi what I'm looking at as far as a good gaming laptop goes


I checked the gamebenchmarks on the 675mx and it seems to runs all games (i think only crysis 3 and farcry 3) on ultra settings with 40+ fps.

Anything else for suggestions?

I'm buying a laptop to replace my older broken laptop, i would build a desktop, but i attend "Lan parties" frequently, but still want to be able to keep up.


I looked at xoticpc's laptops, and preferred the dangbook over some of the sagers, but im open for comments.

Just noticed a couple things that are not on sale as far as the fangbook go, and that is the upgrade from major brand to corsair vengence gaming ram, and the upgrade from 500 -> 750 7200rpm hdd. So if anyone has any advice, i'd be glad to get a quick response, Thank you in advance

The Fangbook is a slightly modified MSI GT70, pretty sure XoticPC has those.

At 1299 that's cheap for a 3630QM and GTX 675MX on a 17" 1080 laptop... Not sure if I am missing something.

I've tried ibuypower, too. 1469 for the same specs.

For a 3630QM and a GTX 675MX, CB Fangbook is really the best. Can't get another 17" with those two at 1299.

EDIT: I was doing some research on 15" Clevos, and I am quite surprised at the pricing of the Fangbook. Would buy definitely consider a 15" Fangbook if it ever comes out, the price is just too good.
