looking for a gaming laptop

#1SkylineQSPosted 8/22/2013 12:21:54 PM
before some of you said just built a desktop, i just want to clear some stuff. i will be moving to live with my family for about next 4-5 months. they don't have a lot of space and i don't want to move my current desktop set up to their house. so i think getting a gaming laptop will be the best choice for now.

i budget is around 1000. i been looking IdeaPad 510. I don't know if there are any other good choice out there....

thanks a lot!!!

I would say the y510 is a good choice with dual 750s.

yeah it seems like y510p would be the best out there. damn they had a deal on amazon for the sli version >< wish they have it again...

the Lenovo doesn't have normal Sli

it's a proprietary version better suited to a notebook without a dedicated card, it makes little sense to Sli two chips, one being PCI-Express native and the other being an I/O card on probably a SATA interface...

this. I got this exact one for my wife. She loves it.

also, the drivers would not be compatible with official drivers for the sli, and thus any new game needing a driver patch, would be run off sli or with an outdated driver

sounds like a mess, but I still like the I/O card idea for notebooks without a dedicated chip
