Price range is 1000-1300. I will be going on an exchange trip to south Korea, and bringing my gaming rig isn't possible due to size and weight issues for planes. I will be selling it shortly.


anyways, so. I a heavy computer user, I use daily for various things. Most commonly mmo's, however I would like the option to play current gen games on high settings. If possible, I'd like a thinner laptop.


if you have any recommendations please post them. I have a few things I am considering, but I always love suggestions.

I will leave the thread here over night and I will post back once I get home from work tomorrow.

Enjoy the culture and use some cafes

or find out the exchange rate and see if their laptops are worth less for more. Just bring a US install disk or see if you can get english settings.

thanks, I will.
For the most part they are more expensive there. Also, I will be there for 10 months so it won't be ideal to just use PCrooms daily. I'd rather just be able to use a laptop at my host home for convenience reasons.
I will probably be selling my desktop for around $1300 anyways, so laptop will be paid for. In the long run I would prefer a laptop anyways, I am still in high school, and it would be more convenient to own a laptop until I settle down somewhere. Also, the less gaming in uni the better.

Pretty sure you could get an MSI, Asus, Gigabyte or Lenovo cheaper there than they are here.

Just look for the language of the OS.

Hmm yeah if you were only going for a month I'd say use and abuse their cafes. But 10 months... What games in particular are you going to play?

If you'd like the best bang for your buck, I'd recommend buying an ASUS G550jk. I put most emphasis on thin and light with moderate gaming possibilities when looking for you. ASUS recently came out with a new version so as far as being gaming capable, it will definitely hold it's own. Buy the JK over the higher end because you can save some money and install an SSD fairly easily on your own terms. Also look at the Alienware M14x. A lot of people will say you can get more power for the same price, which is true but most of the "power" they talk about is user-upgradable (ram, hdd-->SSD, etc). If you need any further advice, let us know.

I think I will avoid alienware, they are far too bulky. My friend has one and it weighs over 10lbs. I will look into the Asus, thanks.


edit: where can I buy this? I have been looking for awhile, and see I prices online, nor a site I can buy it from.
