That's a desktop replacement where it's best place is on a desk.
As to ibuy, the web search speaks for itself. Compared to Dell, I know where I buy my laptops.
Now is this for gaming? If so, you have 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 you're going for games so you maximized the GPU and picked a nice enough CPU?
So I'm comfortable with spending a fair bit of money on a gaming/desktop replacement laptop.
I have narrowed down my choices between an alienware
Specs vary but will be willing to spend upward to $2300 Cdn.
The second system I was looking at was an ibuypower Valkyrie BTS
The system has better specs that the alienware and costs about 300 bucks cheaper. (understandably it'll probably come out to be more with duty taxes coming from the states).
My question is what is everyone's experiences with ibuypower? I know my niece purchased a PC from them and they ruined the video card (power cable put so much stress on the side of the PCB that it bent the video card- as opposed to routing around the card). I know alienware has been around for a while, but because of that I think their prices are a bit ridiculous when you look at the valkyrie's specs and pricing.
Any help would be appreciated.
