NEW Gaming Laptop DELL, worth the price? Help.....

Hey Guys, I have been thinking about getting a laptop for my new business but being a gamer, I have been trying to figure out if I should replace my desktop completely or what!! Ofcourse I will keep the one I already have! Went to the Dell website and sorta liked this but wanted your input on whether this will be good for some gaming or not? I mostly play CounterStrike, COD MW2 etc...

  1. Its a nice laptop but you can get better ones in this 1500$ range, like asus G73 with much better gtx460 or hd5870
  2. I agree with raza. I think you could get more in terms or graphics power for the kind of cash you want to spend.
  3. If you want 15.6 screen then go with this one http://www.xoticpc.com/asus-g53jwa1-pre-order-p-2857.html?wconfigure=yes

    OR if 17 inch then http://www.xoticpc.com/asus-g73jwxr1-republic-gamers-laptop-p-2931.html?wconfigure=yes

    Both are equipped with full HD 1080p screen and GTX460 for ensuring best performance for the buck
