Looking for a high-end gaming laptop that can pump out at least 45-50 fps in most games at as high of settings as possible. I have been looking at the AlienWare M18x with the dual Radeon 6990m's in Crossfire, and really like the design, and presentation of the laptop, but am open to suggestion.

Thanks in advance!

  1. The Alienware m18x is awesome, but it will have horrible battery life and it is a really big laptop. Otherwise it would preform really well. Have you looked at any othe Toshiba's Qosimos or Asus's G series laptops yet? They are much more affordable that a M18x and they might have better battery life.
  2. Yea, a buddy of mine just got the ASUS G73SW, and I really like the look and feel of it, and the price is amazing, but the measly GTX 460M just isn't powerful enough for how I want to play. I'll check out the Qosimos though, I didn't know Toshiba had a gaming sector
