It's a gamer laptop plain and simple. As long as you can live with 2 year life spans (they usually last longer) then you are a candidate for a gaming laptop. There is that other negative issue with 17 inch laptops. Students should NEVER get those. The extra size has resulted in early deaths of the laptops. More bending, etc.
So after almost 6 years on my old Toshiba it is time for a new laptop. I am not a big gamer but would like something that I could play Americas Army online and maybe Diablo 3 with.
Been looking at a few different ones but think I may have decided on an Asus N76VZ-DS71. Anybody have an experience with these? Can it handle gaming decently, my old Toshiba was terrible with games due to the integrated graphics I see this model comes with a 2GB dedicated card.
