Hey community, this is my first time posting and i am not to knowlegable with laptops. i need a laptop for gaming and student use. I game only near a charger so something to conserve battery at classes is needed. Here are some thing i am looking for:
1. At least 1GB of dedicated graphics
2. Needs to handle wow on high settings
3. Intel i5 or i7 is prefered
4. no more than $1500
5. 15inch screen or under and 4 hour battery life +
I was looking at the asus G53Jw-a1 and a3 i could solve the battery problem with buying an extra battry
i would recommend you the asus g73 jh or jw.
there are two versions:
1)with ati 5870m graphics
2)with nvidia gtx 460m with 3d capabilities and 3.0 usb support.
its an 18.4 inch but its very well worth it.
it costs around 1300-1500 and you get all these goodies.
check it out.
G53 is a nice laptop, but will not provide you better standby than MSI GX640, have a look at it if you want 2.5-3 hours backup and 4 hours is impossible on such beast, for 4 hours you should look for ones with 5730 or 5650. http://www.xoticpc.com/msi-gx640260us-p-2766.html
