    Question Gaming Laptop help...

    Need some help here. I would much rather game on a desktop but I need a laptop for work.

    My options are:

    XPS 17

    i5 560M 2.66ghz 4 threads

    GeForce 435M 1GB

    8GB Ram



    OR



    XPS 17

    i7 740QM 1.73ghz 8threads

    GeForce 445M 3GB

    8GB Ram (possibly 12gb)



    Will I see much improvement in gaming and general surfing the net stuff (**** jk) by upgrading to the i7 and 445 card?



    Thanks!

    I have a feeling that the GHz speed on either of those is going to give you issues. Most games barely utilize more than two cores...

    I love Alienware, My friend has a Alienware laptop, he plays games on it, the color changes as the mood of the game changes.

    yes but that obviously doesn't effect the prices. Alienware is A LOT more. like $800 more.

    If your budget is $1500, buy this:

    http://www.sagernotebook.com/index.p...el_name=NP8760

    Sager notebooks are built off of Clevo chassis, which alienware, voodoopc and hypersonic all use.

    I'm posting this on an older Sager which i paid 1600 for (9800gts 512mb, c2d t9300 2.5ghz dual core, etc etc)

    I've had it now for over 2 years and it has been completely flawless, not a single problem with it at all.
