Go with Asus. They are reliable, and are great for gaming. Mine has a 460m and I can still max out almost every game out there. Also you can overclock the monitors and get a 100hz refresh rate which is nice... (not a joke) I have a G73JW, there are better, newer ones like the G75VW have 3d and everything. They work great for rendering, adobe, CAD, all that stuff too. And just plain rock for gaming!
My gaming rig: ASUS G73JW: I7 740qm, 8 gigs ddr3, Nvidia Geforce 460m.
I like single player games. Nothing is quite as enjoyable as playing with myself.

Usual argument, do you really need a laptop? You can build a kickass gaming desktop for that money...

If you need/dead set on laptop, here you go:

look at other options there, get 780m SLI


A 12lb laptop. O_o


If you want a "gaming" laptop that's how much they weight.

Truth is, the whole gaming laptop label is a gimmick. Laptops with a ton of power are just mobile desktops. Good for people who travel or need to condense space. If you don't move around a lot or LAN with friends there is really ZERO need for a "gaming" laptop.

I've always hated gaming laptops, you get crappy hardware for 10 times more money than a desktop. Even if you travel, a gaming laptop is a bad idea.

Yeah, but this describes me and everyone I know. I get very annoyed with the condescending attitude from PC gamers about it.

I would sacrifice a battery to make more space for heat dissipation and the like, but no-one makes no-battery laptops. Size and weight no big deal either. But I can't do with a desktop, it needs to be moveable. I would just buy a console if I was going to keep it stationary.

Moving something for the sake of moving something is stupid.

If you're gaming on a laptop and not doing it at a desk, you're doing it wrong.

I own one only because I fly out to a new contract and live there for 3 months on a regular basis, and I'm not moving all my stuff.

Most people who have gaming laptops would be just as well off building a desktop for gaming and a cheap laptop for work/school/whatever.

A 460M definitely cannot come close to maxing every game out there unless you're playing at 1366x768 or lower.
