Finding a laptop

Help Request Subject: Buying a Laptop

Specific people needed to read this: People who know good gaming

Summarize help request in one sentence: I'm looking for a gaming laptop (PC, preferably) to replace this: .

[Before anyone is going to troll me for having a MacBook, it used to be purely for school and video editing and writing, not for gaming, and I was comfortable using a Mac for editing because of my video class. So shut up. parrot]

Additional Info: Can anyone help me pick out a laptop? /r/SuggestALaptop is no help what-so-ever unless you go by what people already said. I'm looking at at the Sager NP8235 (Clevo P151SM1) right now, and it seems like what I want, but by going by what they said, I need to raise the price from 1200 to 1500ish to get what I want out of it.

TL;DR: I want an upgrade or replacement that will be good for video/picture editing (and maybe recording), coding, school, and gaming.

Importance level(low,medium,high): High, as I won't be able to play many/any Steam games on this  laptop, which will render me pretty useless to the CG community.

Steam related?: Sorta.

Your first mistake...Gaming on a laptop! -_-

But really, if you need to game on a laptop then you need to look at Sager or Clevo laptops. These are what Alienware uses so you can get a sweet rig that is as powerful as all, but won;t pay the premium of having a fucking alien sticker on the side of it.

I also suggest checking out the Dell Online Outlet.

When someone buys a system and they are not happy with it, they return it right away, dell cannot sell it new so you get a great price cut.  Or if it gets a scratch on it. Like WTF cares if the damn plastic has a scratch. (Well you are a MAC user so maybe, but really it does not effect the PC)

Good luck,

Blame my parents for treating me like a 12 year old :P

But yeah, I need a laptop for school and stuff, so I also game on it; I do have a PC my brother built for me and I'm looking into upgrading as time goes on, but my mom insists on not letting me make my own decisions about whether or not I have said PC at my new house, so I had to leave it behind for the time being.

Thanks for the help

Try Asusg75vw.

fits your price range, and requirements.
Great performance.
Rarely crashes on me when I play bf3, run AutoCad or Revit.

Drawback is that it's a massive laptop, about 17" by 14".
The battery life is at least 2-3hours.
Weighs quite a bit.

What is it to read the information into knowledge so too. I like it a lot because I'm not that good.

  • wellrgr: Trying to differentiate the pronunciation of there and their is an exercise in frustration though.
    September 08, 2017, 03:18:07 AM
  • wellrgr: google translator pronounces blaim as blime like in slime, and blame as lame with a b. I disagree with google translator, I think claim with a b instead of a c would be the pronunciation, but what do I know? That said, claim and blame don't sound exactly the same, just similar.
    September 08, 2017, 03:15:49 AM
  • Inject OH 4: to be fair they phonetically sound the same. So I mean it's not my problem that English got it wrong.
