I don't know what competetive prices are for for gaming laptops with those specs.

 

But that is probably one of the fastest laptops you can buy at the moment.

 

Core i7 Mobile with Mobile GTX 680 GPU with Crucial SSD. Dam. Is all I can say.

Sager has the best prices, they use the same parts as Clevo laptops. It's amazing what 2,300 can buy compared to what you get in a MacBook for the same exact price.

I can help but think about the absolute powerhouse I could build you with 2300. It makes my brain geek out.

TBH, I'll never understand the gaming laptop. But that's only because I never do any consistent gaming outside a home setting where desktop power is king. That and life-span of a laptop just isn't good enough for me to justify putting that much money into it. 

If you have the disposable income, I say good choice. I would have gone a little bigger on the screen if gaming was your plan, but that'll get the job done.

That being said, it all depends on how/where you plan to use it. 

To be honest I don't game that much, more casual gaming unless a big release like Diablo III comes out then I go hard and play it like crazy. I'm more of an enthusiast at heart, I love bench marking and playing with new hardware. I figured I really needed a laptop because I do a lot of traveling and I thought why not go all out.

I'm sure it'll be excellent as a gaming/'desktop replacement' laptop, but given the choice, I'd personally prefer the rMBP, even with the weaker hardware. tongue.gif

Oh, and Mech: you didn't get my Ju-ni joke? lol

 

I have nothing to say, but want to feel like I don't, so I'll post last night's youtube video of me being super-tired at 1 in the morning.

above stated youtube vid (Click to show)

damn lag... Would have grabbed all those colored blocks if I hadn't been recording: The game prioritizes drawing the frames over mouse input. It's annoying as hell. lol

No I don't. You have to realize I cannot Japanese, and you should assume that in every case unless I say the word in a way that suggests I know it

Easy RMA.

lool, you are getting. Very heated I guess.

 

This is so weird in typing.

Bowei, I think you and Boris should decide who gets the PH unit, or rather how to figure out who gets it.

What switches does the keyboard have?

Oh right. Death Match sound better very_evil_smiley.gif

 

 


I can't plug in the 3.5mm audio out and mic in though. If I plug the 3.5mm audio plugs from the razer into my computer. My entire audio unit gets hiss and buzz. Probably due to a meh chip in my computer.

 

And that's why I use S/PDIF

 

 

 

 

I changed my mouse and Pc case theme to match the keyboard :) tongue_smile.gif

Dem sandals...

Anyhow, I thought I'd bring up a new topic.

 

One of my favorite songs from an anime is  "Just Awake" by Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. It came on during an episode of Hunter x Hunter and was also used as an ending theme for a while (if i remember correctly). 

 

I was wondering if there are any other fans of the band, or just that song, or even Hunter x Hunter?

 

Follow up question: Has anyone listened to "Just Awake" on some Mad Dogs? 

Hmm, I own the Mad Dogs. Hadn't heard the song before this, but I just checked it out on youtube. I don't really like screaming, but that song's kick drums are a great example of why I love the MDs. Plenty of punch from them while remaining quick and linear, and keeping everything else clear.

I'm going to ask "why?!?!?" I actually had a MBP 15 inch retina display and returned it. What really pisses me off is where does Apple get off charging so much for what they actually put into their computers. I understand the appeal of the MBP and I even think it's damn sexy but for what I can get for the price I just cant give apple my money

Mechgamer, that's a great mouse. Best I've found so far and I've had a lot of mice

I wholeheartedly agree on the 'terrible value' on the MBP, but I personally just weigh portability, battery life, screen quality and overall build quality above the actual performance of the machine.

 

My logic being, what good is a laptop you won't carry around?

£1500 is actually kinda a poor budget here in the UK for a real high end rig. You have to step up to £2k for a full high end system and add another £2k for peripherals. I'd be tempted by a watercooled dual 8-core Xeon with a Quadro card. That would probably be hitting the £5k+ region just for the main tower.

yea I hear ya, I would totally be an apple fanboy if....

 

1. All windows progs and games worked on OS X

2. I could get the hardware in it that I just picked for the Sager at the same price

 

if those two conditions were met it would be hands down Apple

 

Obviously the number 1 isn't realistic but if it was I feel like they would take the whole market

post #52588 of 149498

On a different note, I need a good closed can for watching movies at work

Ehh, rock paper scissors. I don't really have an opinion.

 

Yeah.

Gets off? A $500+ laptop is a luxury. If it was a necessity to buy a $1500 computer. I would agree. But it's not.

They do.

Crossover

Bootcamp

Parallel Studios

Wine.

 

You can almost do. Mac Pro supports many parts. But only specific parts will work. 

 

The computers they make are not for gaming. They are for those that will buy it. It is a luxury.

 

And you guys do realize that Microsoft is doing the same exact thing now right? Locked down applications and GUI (or more locked down) on their OS and a Tablet that is very very pricey and near uncompetiable in the market with many key features missing.

I think it's a bad idea to buy a high end rig, unless you have a very specific use for it.

 

It's better to just get the best bang for your buck, then upgrade again in a few years when the world has moved on.

 

But it's cool to splurge on peripherals. tongue.gif

Yeah I agree.

 

I think things are looking good for the future of laptops, as ultrabooks are all the rage these days with everyone 'catching up' to the MBA's. It won't be too long until we see some great rMBP alternatives!

 

When I travel nowadays, playing games is the last thing on my mind, which is why my 13" Air is more than enough for backing up photos and whatnot.
