"book" and gaming don't go together.

Get a decent, heavy LAPTOP or don't get nothing at all.


Notebook.

Look at the Samsung ATIV Books 6-9. Book 6 and 8 have a 7730m which isn't too bad. The MSI GS70 is new awesome 17' inch laptop that weighs about 5lbs, but that is $1700.

My scholarship allows up to 1400 for a laptop. Whatever I don't use get's wasted..


I'm done paying taxes.


No you're not.

I saw this on Anandtech.

Looks good since no Haswell and GPU refreshes on Apple's side yet. The Sager one does have Iris Pro, I guess.


Well...that does actually look good. Usually it's one or the other; 1080p but no dedicated GPU, GPU but no Haswell refresh or lower res screen. As much as I hate Acer, that looks like a damn fine machine.
