Hi, I've been looking at a bunch of laptops and I would love some more opinions and suggestions.
Here are my ideal preferences:
Budget around $1000, hopefully under.
i7 (but I'm willing to settle with an i5)
As for hardrive space, 500gb is good enough. 7200rpm.
I've got a good gaming desktop so I'm looking for a portable laptop that I can bring around to game on.
I don't care much about battery life (but obviously the longer, the better.)
I'd like this laptop to play the latest games at around high+ settings with 60+fps (such as Starcraft 2 and the upcoming BF3)
I live in Canada and have been looking at NCIX and Newegg.ca
I really like this one http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1683...
ASUS G53SW with the GTX 560M. It's a little outside my budget, but hopefully I can find a similar machine on sale if I'm patient enough. A saw a similar model on the US Newegg for $200 off.
I'm leaning towards ASUS. MSI's are okay, but I really hate the keyboard layout so I'd prefer to stay away from them.
I want to keep this laptop for 3+ years.
Anyways, I would love your suggestions and some info on how to on top of notebook deals in Canada.
I would step up to the I7 and the 500 gig with the SSD but that is just personal preference. As for a how long it will last you, build/hardware wise a good while, specs wise they are always coming out with bigger and better so I could tell ya.
