Hey, I am knew to this forum and was wondering what the best gaming laptop would be to travel with? Due to my job, i travel at least 2 weeks out of the month. Almost all the hotels i go to have good internet so thats not a problem. I have been using an HP 311 with NVIDIA ion when i travel and the main game i play now is called Aion. Its an MMO that is like World of Warcraft. The netbook can play it, but its so incredible slow and i get frame rates of like 2-6 FPS. So my main need for the laptop would be for a game like Aion, but when Starcraft 2 comes out and The Old Republic i want this thing to be able to handle those smoothly. I dont need to play on the highest settings but i just want the game to be smooth.
I have been looking at the Alienware M11X, M15X, and the Ibuypower.com 15 inch gaming notebook. I really like the Alienware M11X because it is super portable, but im not sure if it would be able to handle these upcoming games? Any suggestions to what i should do? My Budget is under $1500. I have to travel with my work laptop so the M11X would be great because its so small, but getting that instead of the 15 inch ibuypower or m15x, i have to give up that extra power. Any thoughts to how the M11X would handle future games? THanks!!
It's GPU cooling is about normal for a gaming laptop, not everyone might realize that unless they've owned a gaming laptop in the past.
You learn not to use the notebook in you lap while gaming.
That Asus N61 reviews on NewEgg are unusually good for a gaming laptop. Look at some others in comparison.
