Desktop Replacement? Tags: Laptops Desktops Product Last response: October 5, 2010 9:29 AM in Laptops & Notebooks Share rlstoner2004 October 5, 2010 2:04:10 AM Howdy. I'm looking to get a gaming laptop for $1000 (or less). I have a desktop thats basically obsolete now. Two questions: ***What laptop? I dont need a ton of battery life or mobility. So far I'm leaning towards i7 N61JQ-X1 (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...) -Discontinued from newegg... bad sign? ***Lastly, I have a decent monitor setup going right now, so have been thinking about getting a dock setup to turn the laptop into a desktop when I feel like gaming. If the resolution of the laptop is 1366 x 768, Can it go higher if I connect a higher res monitor or is the software going to keep down? Tips/Advice on docking? Don't know too much about it. Basiclly want my desktop setup, then I can bring in my laptop and run that if I want. Thanks in advance!

And yes,you can get higher resolution if you connect it to another monitor(with a resolution more than the laptop) dragon5677 October 5, 2010 9:29:26 AM i think you should go for an asus g51, pretty much portable and plays games nicely.
