    You'll see 4-5+ hours of battery usage with Optimus on performance power settings but not when gaming

    I'd suggest a Clevo P150EM often marketed as a Sager NP9150 (Asterisked items are upgrades from base build). Clevo made Alienware laptops before Alienware was purchased by Dell. The 17" model is only $50 more
