Got a $1,000 gaming laptop from my grandparents for college 5 years ago (grandparents let me pick the model) and I totally agree. Just using it hurt my palms because it got so hard. I couldn't take it to some classes because it was so damn big and the charge lasted an hour and a half (not practical for 3 hour lectures with no guarantee of an outlet seat) and it srill didn't play newer games well after about a year.

After a year I basically hooked it up to KB/M+Monitor and after three I replaced it with a desktop (and netbook) outright.

I will never buy a gaming laptop again.

As a Guy who has a gaming laptop for 1 year I can honestly say that TC must have bought a Cheap gaming laptop. I use the Asus G750JW and i don't have any problems with it at all. I use it as my primary gaming machine even tho I have 2 gaming desktop.

Thats the same one I have, I can even emulate PS2 and Gamecube games on it no problem but having high settings even on Warcrack I get 60fps almost all the time but sometimes it seems to throttle iself back when it hits about 70 degrees on graphics card and 60 on cpu.

My 2 1/2 year old laptop with a 670m that was 1,200 is still running strong. No need for a cooling pad at all.

Beat the living hell out of it traveling 3 weeks out of every month too.

Battery life? The only time its not plugged into something is when im in a plane that doesn't have outlets. IT's not a handheld, plug it in.

If you're going to buy a really expensive laptop, IMO you should be comfortable with taking it apart and doing repairs on it once the warranty is expired.

Yeah I have that one too, its about 8 months old, and it's doing great.

I actually needed to get a laptop though, if I didn't move as much as I did (at the time I bought it) I would have just built a desktop

I've heard that argument at least a few times..."I move a lot" - I can understand if you're say a freelance professional 3D artist going to a lot of meetings/traveling etc. and really need a powerhouse machine with you, but how often are people changing houses that wrapping a computer case in some bubble wrap/blankets etc. is some herculean effort? Are there local rebel skirmishes that are forcing you out of an area every other week or something?
