Resolved Question

a new laptop

by orid159 / February 11, 2013 8:30 AM PST

im doing my research to buy a new laptop and a question came up:

does it matter which brand i buy ?
i mean, i can buy a cool alienware at my price range, on the other hand, i can buy asus with better specs at the same price rate. i mtalking about asus G75VW-T1414H.
does the brand matter ? will alienware be better even if the specs are less high ?

sorry im my english is a bit confused, i hope i made myself clear.

thanks !

We have too many Dells at the office and my kid has that ASUS ROG 1080p 15 inch gamer laptop.

-> Your question? NO! Never use specs. Find benchmarks.

Then you go for similar to.

Not all have benchmarks so we can synthesize the benchmark by comparing a similar unit by that maker.

For example I will use the results of an i5/GT640 powered ASUS even when the laptop has the i7. That's close enough.
