How do they compare to traditional tower PCs? As my username implies, I'm somewhat new to this, so please bear with me. Keep in mind that I travel routinely for work, but still have plenty of down-time to play games. I would rather keep things simple with a laptop than carry a tower and monitor around with me through airports and in hotels.

So, overall, how do they compare. Any differences in longevity? Good/Poor investment?

Well if you were to hypothetically get a gaming laptop you would need a high budget. They are expensive

I'm willing to spend up to $1,500.00.

I am thinking about purchasing this one: http://configure.us.dell.com/dellstore/config.aspx?oc=arbi76750&cs=19&dgvcode=ss&c=US&l=EN&ST=pla&dgc=ST&cid=262076&lid=4742362VEN1=62585286348&acd=123098073120560

Would I be able to get 7-10 years of quality gaming or would I have to upgrade at some point, and if so, how much would it cost?

Are you sure you want to go with a gaming laptop, with a 1500 budget you could build a beast rig

You can problaby get 5 years max, then it won't play the new games.

as steve said, if you can, even if you have to make adjustments, build your own/get your own desktop.


But if you are dead set on a gaming laptop, xoticpc.com. I bought my gaming laptop from there, go for a sager. excellent overall, no complaints and powerful.
