Resolved Question

a new laptop

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

hi,
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.

https://www.google.com/search?hl=en&as_q=asus+G75VW+notebookcheck finds other models in this line. You can get an idea of the performance with models with the same GPU or CPU and get and idea of the performance.

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.
