I know, gaming laptops aren't always the best way to go, but say you didn't have the chance to build a desktop, and had to buy a gaming laptop.

Which brand would you be most likely to choose, if no budget was given?




I ask because I may end up having to sell a bunch of a stuff, and crunch my gaming PC in to something more portable. Life, ftw.

Razer Blade 14.
It's the most powerful ultraportable gaming laptop on the market. It's definitely what I would get if money was not an issue.

Also I would never choose a brand in general. Every brand has good and bad laptop models.

I would buy a normal laptop, save myself oodles of money, and use it on something more practical.

Don't overpay for crap just because it's the clearest option available.

That's a trick question. Obviously the MacBook Pro. It has the 750m for on the go gaming which will work okay. Also a pretty good proc to back it up and pcie ssd...

Anyways then when you get home you plug your thunderbolt cable into your MBP and now have a 780ti. Now you game away in glory and can pick up and go whenever you need to.

I personally feel that's the only realistic option.

I probably should've worded the topic differently, perhaps "which specific laptop would you get?" is a better question.


And also, in my case, I do have a budget, just don't know what it is yet, so no I'm not buying alienware, I'm not rich nor crazy. Just curious on what's out there.

... Yeah.

Anyway, Asus is always a good choice. Their machines are really built to last. They have huge vents for the fans, too, which lets the cool easily, and makes them easy to keep dust-free. Also, they are usually relatively cheap for what they have inside.

look for a laptop with a intel i3 4330

the graphics are 4600HD which is 4th gen

I'd honestly buy a cheap ass laptop and then just build a computer with the extra money

Definitely get an Asus. My 2 year old Asus K55VM has survived so much. I spilled vodka on it like 2 weeks ago and it's still going strong.
