Which GeForce GTX 880M Gaming Laptop is Right for You?

Nvidia last week announced its GeForce 880M series of mobile GPUs. Unlike desktop parts, consumers can't just simply pick their favorite GPU to integrate into their systems; they have to rely on system integrators to make the best choices for a complete gaming notebook. If you're serious about gaming on the go, then you probably want the GeForce GTX 880M with 8 GB of DDR5. With that decision made, there are still dozens of other factors, such as storage capacity and weight. We've compiled a list below with all the options available to you with the GeForce 880M that are in the sub-$2,500 mark.

    None of them. They are all only 1080p. When are PC laptop makers going to get with it and put some real resolution into the displays? The Mac has been doing it for years. Heck, even tablet makers are doing it.
