You wrote gaming then listed an ultrabook. Then you wrote about the price. Ultrabooks are this year's new designs with latest of everything so you pay for the slim form and more.
Also, you know there are heat and life span issues with gaming laptops but can you accept that? If not, why not go back to the desktop where you can deal with the heat?
Hi there, I posted previously about replacement for an HP Envy 17. I have now invested much more time researching across all the reviews posted by CNet (which are awesome - especially the video clips!) but believe I have narrowed down a selection to a few.
My budget is approx £1k. I thought I was looking for a specific gaming rig but changed my mind and think that the i7 along with a dedicated graphics card should be able to cover most of my gaming requirements.
Quality of build and 'mature' look is quite important, as is weight, as I will be using the laptop around the house too.
Here are my selections - any thoughts appreciated...especially potential ,models and/or issues that I may have missed (I have discounted the Acer Timeline M3 Ultra due to screen quality)
1) Dell XPS 14 Ultrabook (over-priced for 14" screen?)
2) Acer Aspire Ethos 5951G (weight/heat an issue?)
3) HP Envy 17-3002ea (weight/heat an issue?)
4) MSI GE620 (Display/Noise?)
