Clarification Request
Dead links.

Sorry but the links are dead.

So far, ALL the Inspirons have had less than inspiring displays. Be sure to look at both models BEFORE BUYING!

The N56VZ is a series with what looks like 5 or more models. It would be easy to pick one that didn't compare well with the Inspiron.

That is the link to the Asus SERIES

And I see 5 or more MODELS. As such, you would get 5 to more benchmarks to compare. I can't do that for you.

Looks nice but then it looks like a gamer laptop.

If you are fine with 2 year life spans then it's good to go.

However why are you comparing a 17 inch laptop to a 15 incher?

Why? Gaming.

It's that simple. To get all that performance into that much space, the temperatures go up, the life span goes down. It's just like a high performance car. It doesn't last as long.

I am not saying this will only last 2 years. I'm saying you have to be OK with with that if it happens. Many gamers burn out their laptops in that much time.

it's ok ?

Doesn't matter.

And while a gently user helps, it's still an high end sports machine and the life span does go less than your boring laptops.

The 17 inch units also suffer reduced life spans with students since they schlep the laptop around and your average Inspion is a bit "bendy."

The Asus is a good machine but it appears you can't accept the lower life spans of high performance laptops. Try this. Add a 4 year warranty and then it's not your problem.

ok ..
so wich Processor and Graphics Card i need to take for high life spans , and that run COD ?

In a laptop?

I have to go with the laptop with the longest warranty. It appears you are new to PCs in general. That is, it's a recent development to get the high end GPUs inside a laptop. And if you have followed laptops for a few decades, not much has changed in regards to the high end CPU and GPU with it's higher heat output has always resulted in shorter (on average) life spans.

At least you know this now and will get a warranty to fit your needs.

Ok , Thank you very much !
