Need New Laptop

hello, i am advising a friend on a laptop to choose, and it needs to be:
1. very fast, gaming grade
2. atleast 4 gigs of ram, but preferably 6 gigs of fast ram (no 800 MHz)
3. HD display, and the bigger the better
4.really good vid card, atleast a 260
5.has to be cool looking ( :pfff: )
6. under 1800$

this is the best i found:

just wondering if thats a real 360, if it is worth the price, and if there is anything better for the price. he got a free ssd from intel (lucky sob) so he doesnt need one built in. thanks :)

  1. Thats a great laptop and meets all of the requirements you said. But check out some alienware laptops.
  2. lol my friend was dieing to get an alienware, i told them they were overpriced, a laptop that wasnt even as good as that cost 2300$, so nah. is that a true 360 though?

    What do you mean by true? Do you mean is it a Fermi/GT100 based card? No, it's a rebadged GT215 card. Performance should be around what the current GTS 260M is. You'd probably be better off buying one of the Asus G series with an i7 and GTX 260M.

    Have him look at this as well: http://www.xoticpc.com/sager-np8690-built-clevo-w860cu-custom-gaming-laptop-p-2659.html

  4. the problem with that is not enough ram, not very big screen, and not hd.
  5. Get what ya want custom built to your specs

  6. that los good, but the problem is, they are all too expensive once i get it up to decent specs.
  7. 1 piece of advice

    Asus

    They sell great laptops with 2 years grantee (best grantee in the market ) and they are solid, fast and about same price than any other brand.

    Then I suggest he look at these 2 from Asus:
    G72 (Core2Quad, 6gb RAM, GTX 260M, Full HD): http://www.xoticpc.com/asus-g72gxa1-p-2722.html?wconfigure=yes

    G73 (Core i7, 8gb of RAM, Mobility 5870, Full HD): http://www.xoticpc.com/asus-g73jha1-order-p-2731.html?wconfigure=yes

    The G73 will be a pre-order since it hasn't been released yet, but the G72 he should be able to get immediately as long as they still have them in stock.

    edit: both come standard with dual 500gb HDDs and Blu-ray players.
  9. thank you sooo much, that looks amazing, and satisfies the coolness factor, cuz of the skins, and has some amazing hardware. :D
  10. The Sager NP8760 is a little above but comes with a 280m gtx n core i7

    Sager NP8690 is a smaller screen but with same specs
    http://www.xoticpc.com/sager-np8690-built-clevo-w860cu-custom-gaming-laptop-order-p-2659.html

    Other than that the above Asus laptops are very good as well.

    Both Jack and I tried suggesting those earlier and were shot down. To meet the specs he wants they go outside of the price his friend is willing to pay.
  12. right, and a 5870 beats a 280 in laptop world, and is more than enough probs. the i7, how high can it oc and remain 4 core
