My question: Would this laptop make me happy as "the gamer"?

This one was simple to answer. Why?
by R. Proffitt Forum moderator / November 22, 2012 3:22 PM PST

Because we can read the following.

"Our tests demonstrate fairly little difference between a $225 LGA 1155 Core i5-2500K and a $1000 LGA 2011 Core i7-3960X, even when three-way graphics card configurations are involved. It turns out that memory bandwidth and PCIe throughput don't hold back the performance of existing Sandy Bridge-based machines. "

So this tells me they are preying on the public that is programmed that the i7 is always better.

So no.
