The dual gfx will be much better for gaming then a desktop CPU in a laptop... and id be willing to bet the first one will be very bulky and very hot... go with the veda series laptop, will be much better for gaming, easily worth the extra couple hundred
The Desktop CPU is not designed to be housed in such a tight space that the laptop restricts it too. Better off to go with the Mobile CPU- less power draw, heat generation, and longer life. So long as the CPU is not soldered to the board, your better off getting a cheaper CPU, with the dual graphics, since its A LOT easier to upgrade laptop CPU later than GPU. Especially if the GPU(s) is/are built into the motherboard, aka Mainboard.
Maybe call the company and ask if the video card/GPU and CPU can be upgraded later?
Hm, would a one of those laptop fans(that you rest the laptop on) Seriously reduce the heat of it? Seems the Mobile CPU's might be a bottle neck for 2x gfx, and i cant see myself spending the 300$ for that tiny bit of upgrade to the next CPU(if its upgradeable)
I was more so concerned with the much lower clock speed on the Mobile version and adding in a second gfx to it. I guess i juts really wanna know if that Mobile CPU would bottleneck 2x gfx and if 2x gfx would even be worthwhile on the 1920x1080 screen.
Sorry for all the questions Just want to make sure im getting the best i can get, spending 3k on a laptop is no joke lol
Sidenote - I could get a I7 960 for just about the same price as the Veda laptop series, with the 2x gfx.
