New laptop with 1000$ budget?
- 15", or 17" - being a desktop replacement laptop
- Don't care about weight
- 720p fine, 1080p even better
- AMD or Intel, don't care
- Med. gaming (BF3, Skyrim) but not heavy on the details
- DVD reader not required
- USB3, Fingerprint reader, Bluetooth all nice-to-haves
- Gigabit network
- Wireless N
- Windows 7
No particular brand preference, but I do like Lenovo's build quality, and Dell's Customer Support.
Special attention to proper cooling, since it will be powered 24/7.
With that 1000$ budget, what would be your weapon of choice? I'm kinda overwhelmed with the choices, and I don't know much about mobile GPU performance.
edit: here's one I found: The Dell Online Store: Build Your System
The 17R would be one of the better choices. You hit the nail right on the head though, either Dell or Lenovo would be my choice at that price range and what you want in it. I can't really offer any sorts of suggestions however, most people buying laptops here cringe at a $500 price tag, let alone $1000.
Yup, and that Lenovo W520 that is EOL (with a K2000M GPU / i7) for 850$ is not shabby either.
Still looking. Found this: MSI CX61 0NF-256US Intel Core I5-3210M 6GB 750GB 15.6in LED GT645M 2GB DVDRW WLAN HDMI Win8 Notebook
Is the MSI laptop RMA center the same as for their components?
Thanks much Sir.
Found this little gem too: Lenovo Y580 Intel Core i7 3630QM 6GB 750GB GeForce GTX660M 15.6in DVDRW USB3.0 Windows 8 Notebook
The PP is well within my budget... :ph34r:
shouldnt you get the newer y500? http://forums.redflagdeals.com/lenov...usive-1292582/
which i believe has an option for sli via the drive caddy.
I suggest you go through the Lenovo site. They Y580 is now on sale AND you can properly select better coverage options:
Laptop Computers | IdeaPad Y Series | Y580 | Lenovo | (CA)
Lol,fail.... yeah i would recommend LDLC o_o you can have GTX 660m inside for 1000$, Ok it's french but it's amazing performance for the price. Order by plane...
just check that:
PC portable : achat / vente PC portable sur ldlc.com
they make awesome laptops.
example : LDLC Saturne SF5-I3-8-HS7 (SF5-I3-8-HS7) : achat / vente PC portable sur ldlc.com
That Y580 actually looks pretty good, and the last few Lenovo's I've owned or played with have been pretty solid... I might pick this up too if there isn't a better suggestion.
