Question

Gaming Laptops, There's so many!

by Jim_Boob / February 25, 2013 2:28 AM PST

I have just spent the last 2 hours looking for a gaming laptop to replace my current all round laptop, and it seems the more I look the more confused I get, so its time I asked for suggestions.

I am looking for something powerful enough to run fairly high end games, without to much trouble, and I am not looking for something portable but I want to be able to put it on my lap without amputating my legs. All this with a price range of $1250.. .ish.

Thanks.

-> But on your lap? Bad idea. Gaming laptops want to breathe. This laptop won't last long.

(NT) Nice ideas. But on the lap = shorter life spans.
