So i finally have some money put away for a new notebook that i can use for as a desktop replacement(or substitute in my case) while im on the go. I do play alot of games and i dont need to worry about the battery life because i wont need to run the laptop off battery power unless the power goes out, which is often in my area for about a half hour. I just need a good laptop for gaming since i can be gone from my desktop for a few days at a time. I am having trouble deciding between an MSI gaming notebook and Asus gaming notebook. I will still use the laptop while at home, just not as much as my desktop at home but alot while im not at home.
I have done some research but i cant seem to get a good answer as to which is better...
The MSI GT70 0NE
The Asus G75VW
The notebooks need:
Two Storage Bays
and have a low fault tolerance
and just be an overall good notebook.
Thank you for taking the time to read my post and looking into my dilemma.
1. So, does the msi notebook run slightly hotter than the asus one? What about sound quality? I've heard from both sides of the fence about the asus's sound quality... And what about the msi notebooks sound?
2. Skyrim, BF3, Borderlands 2, Tf2, Just Cause 2, etc. I chose these notebooks because of the company popularity. Ive built my own desktop but I don't want to built my own laptop... Also, because they are practically the only prebuilt gaming laptops I have heard of. If you have another suggestion, I would greatly appreciate it.
3. I'll check out the website as soon as I can get on a computer.
You need to ask yourself if you need the extra performance for the extra money?
Personally, I'd wait and see what happens with the GTX 670MX and 675MX that should be out soon and if you really want to buy now - none of these.
I'd go for one of the cheaper GTX 675M laptops or the Radeon 7970M which should be faster and is faster in many cases only AMD have drivers problems they are working on now.
So, if im correct, the current 675m and 670m are rebadged 580m and 570m? and the new 675xm and 670xm are the new Kepler based mobile GPUs?
And can you give a rough performance difference between the 675m and the 680m with the 675m as the reference?
last, i dont like to buy AMD graphics cards due to their driver issues. I have a few friends who have owned AMD GPUs and have regretted the decision. (All im saying is i perfer not to take a chance especially since ive seen the damage first hand... nothing against AMD fans.)
Overall I will wait to see how the 675xm and 670xm performance compares to the 680m but i think i will buy the MSI notebook because of its better quality overall. Asus is a great company and makes good products but i think the g75 doesnt compare very well to the GT70.
