Gaming laptop, going to college

Brosef, how about buying a good enough laptop to do your schoolwork. Save the rest of your money for other school supplies. Then, instead of playing video games on the weekend, get out, make real life in the flesh friends, get laid, party a little, and actually enjoy these precious 4 years of your life.


Gaming and doing those things aren't mutually exclusive. There will always be time to game 5-10 hours a week.

I am in my 6th year of uni. I would recommend being able to play games to blow off steam. There will always be a few hours here and there to game.

Something similar to that is probably your best bet. It doesn't break the bank, should play most games you throw at it at 1366x768 on medium or higher, and is still portable with a decent battery life for non gaming stuff.

You don't purchase laptops to play games on them, people.

If you can afford it the MSi Stealth series is great for gaming while still offering a decent level of portability.

MSI laptops are great. I have one.

If you're looking for something portable with decent battery life:
