I want to get a gaming laptop and I dont know which one to get. I was either going to go with the- Battalion 101 P151HM1 Gaming Laptop ($1280) from ibuypower.com or the- Sager NP8130 / Clevo P151HM1 ($1260) from xoticpc.com. I really dont want to spend more money than that, my original budget was $1000 but I want a good graphics card and the gtx 460m seems like one of the best for the price. Basically both laptops are the same but I dont know which one to get. If anyone could give me other suggestions it would really help, as long as its not too exspensive. I want a laptop that will play most games on high/ultra graphics with good fps, I will post the links for both laptops and the specs below. Both have an HDMI port also and headphone/speaker port.

Hello b-dub92;

You no doubt noticed that both are built on the Clevo P151HM1 hardware.

The only think that will separate the two will be the final price and things like warranty and service.
On that score XoticPC offers student/Military discounts and has 3yr labor, 1 year parts warranty.

My advice is find the best price you can, consider the warranty period and what kind of service you think you'd get from each company.

Haha wow I didn't even notice they were both built on the clevo, do you have any suggestions for a better laptop? More "bang" for the buck. Those laptops were the cheapest I could find for the best performance. I really don't want to spend more than $1300

You can look over the MSI GX640-260US
Core i5-450M & 15.4" 1680x1050 w/ Radeon HD 5850 graphics.

I think that Sager NP8130 is about the best deal you're going to find with a GTX 460M graphics and Sandy Bridge quad core.
We can drop down in the 'buks' but it's also going to mean dropping down in GPU & gaming power.
