by JBoyd33641 / August 14, 2010 9:29 AM PDT

I am looking to get a nw laptop for gaming/video editing/music ect. I have found 2 on Amazon that I am thinking of getting. I was wondering if anyone could help advise me on which I should get. Both are on the site and I have pasted the links. Let me know your opinions.

I am looking at these 2:

My wife has the HP i7 laptop

And a friend has a model similar to the Tosh.

Both are blazing fast machines but are best described as desktop replacements. Too hot for lap use.

Inspect each machine and see if you like the display on one over the other and be sure you can stand the glossy finish/finger print magnet on the Tosh.

Sager is not much heard of laptop but its one of the best when it comes to gaming. Read about <a href="http://gadguru.net/review/sager-np8662.html">sager np8662 before you buy<a>

Meet the drop-resistant Moto Z2 Force

The Moto Z2 Force is really thin, with a fast processor and great battery life. It can survive drops without shattering.
