XoticPC has Sager I7+860m for less than a grand and I7+870m for $1500.

Why even look at a 7xx?


Just heard of them now!!!! Hows this one from them:

$862

CPU: 4th Generation IntelŽ Mobile Core i7-4700MQ Haswell Processor
GPU: NVIDIAŽ GeForce GT 840M GDDR3 (2.0GB) w/ Optimus Technology

No. That's not a gaming card it's a multimedia card. You want _60m or higher.

Wouldn't 755m SLI be better than 860m?

You can spend $400 on a console and $400 on a cheap PC, or you can spend $800 to build your own and have the best of both worlds.

Better if every game utilized SLI flawlessly, I suppose.

Ah, so the minimum spent on a gaming laptop is probably going to have to be 1500 then >_<. That puts the Alienware one on par with this one then.

Damn it.. I swear I had something for this..

Really don't see the appeal of gaming laptops. Upgrading them is a pain in the ass and sometimes next to impossible. Why not just spend the 1500 and get a kick-ass gaming pc instead?

Pretty sure for mobility? I mean I don't use gaming laptops either, but why is that so hard for people to understand?
