Do you care about Grahamula returning to TGB astride a shiny new steed?

Yes

No

Only if I can still sneak up behind his laggy ass

Who the fuck is this guy?

It has been decreed by a higher financial power that my current laptop is in fact, a (Lenovo) pile of crap. In lieu of this verdict, I have been promised a new and improved laptop "for school and work."

My beloved denizens, I have come forth on this day to seek the counsel of your all-knowing, cholesterol-encrusted head brains. Now don't go off prematurely- there is a fairly low price limit. I need a computer that will actually run TF2, GW2, and the dozens of games I have bought without playing. Doesn't need to be flashy or anything, just needs to get the job done and not fall apart.

price- try to stay below $850
bells&whistles- only if they are reasonable/practical (i.e. no touchscreens)
brands- whatever, as long as it isn't a Lenovo.
storage- HDD obviously, but SSD boot drives are cool. Doubt I need a TB
memory- As much RAM as can fit without being stupid
vidya card- Considering my track record with AMD/Radeon, I prefer Nvidia
processor- the kind that doesn't bottleneck the shit out of me

But beggars can't be choosers, so whatever.


And no, I'm not dead. Just thoroughly occupied with school and hookers. Sorry to disappoint any of you bastards.

Check out MSI gaming laptops, bought one for my kid last year and I would buy one for myself if purchasing.

If you like bidding wars.

http://www.ebay.com/bhp/asus-g73sw

If you could get that laptop for that price, it's well worth it.


This is RIGHT at your price range.

Decent laptop, higher end of what you're looking for.

If you know how(or atleast know someone who can) you can build a pc/laptop for less than you can buy one outright.

I spent just under 1k for a desktop rig with a gtx 770 gpu and msi z77 mobo in it.

It far exceeds the asus g73s I linked above.

But I've never built a laptop before.

Also a little tip, when you do go shopping for something online.

Use Honey.

I'm also looking at the slightly upgraded version of that with more RAM. Costco has some that are on sale.

Seren- that doesn't help at all you twatwaffle.

Yeah... reliability seems to be an issue with the Acers.

I really don't see any way that building a lower-end laptop would be cost effective.

ASUS. Decent I can run tf2, WoW and most games on it without too much hassle. Even the lower end machines are kinda bad ass. They also have a decent and comprehensive warranty.

Check this out.
