1. What is your budget?
$2,100

2. What is the size of the notebook that you are considering?
No less than 15 inches

3. What screen resolution do you want?
1920 x 1080 or 1920 x 1200

4. Do you need a portable or desktop replacement laptop?
More of a desktop replacement

5. How much battery life do you need?
While gaming it doesn't matter as it will be plugged in. Without gaming: 3 hours is enough.

6. Do you want to play games with your laptop? If so then please list the games that you want to with the settings that you want for these games. (Low,Medium or High)?

Not really too much else. 8GB of memory is enough but if possible 4 dimms for upgrades later.

8. How much storage (Hard Drive capacity) do you need?
For me 80gb SSD is enough for this laptop. That or the smallest size HDD available for the model, in order to just buy the SSD separate.

The site does not matter.

4 years

DVD Write and Blu Ray Reader

I refuse Alienware due to their particular nature of overpricing computer components.

USA

14. Please tell us any additional information if needed.
(Must have a 120hz refresh rate and a 9-cell or higher battery)


I picked out a Dell XPS 17 inch 3D ready laptop for $1,770.83. The 3D ready was the only model with 120hz. I would love a laptop under that price with my features.
I would love a smaller SSD, Getting rid of 3D (But keeping 120hz), and having a core i7 black edition without a factory overclock. (I can overclock it myself.)

Can anyone provide something like this to save a bit on the build I already have?

If its a 3d tv then it bassically needs 120 Hz. Because if it was a 60 hz monitor, then it would use 30Hz for the right side of the brain and 30 Hz for the left side of the brain. After less than an hour you would be hurting your eyes.
