Hi. I asked this forum to recommend me a good gaming laptop about 2 days ago, and I got a good reply from one of toms users.

I searched around the internet and a micro center near my location, and i found a laptop from ASUS.

Which one is better? G53 or NP8150?

It's really hard to decide... after few upgrades, i have this for NP8150.

I still can not decide... Please help me to make a final decision.

Sager NP8150 is missing an OS? That's about an extra $80.
For a gaming machine you want the best graphics card you can afford for longevity with future games.

I already have a genuine copy of Windows 7... and for graphics, That's why i have 6990M. I excluded some unnecessary upgrades and now i have $1510 for 8150.

Wow good choice with the Sager laptop! I have 2 Asus G1s laptops and they have weak GPU chip sets. Its been a headache to send one of them out for repair. I like the Sager over the Asus because of the separate user upgradable graphics card.
I think the G53 is a very stable laptop, but I would go with Sager.

what games are you going to be playing think if you really need the way better graphics card from Sager. The ASUS can easily play BF3 on High. The ASUS has away better design and a backlit keyboard the Sager does not. The ASUS seems better for your buck but the Sager had awesome interior but the design sucks. I do not know dude good luck finding an awesome gaming laptop.
