Question

Lightweight gaming laptop under $1200?

Right now I'm finding a gaming laptop (that weight around 2 kg / 4.5 pounds) that could play some games like csgo, overwatch, etc. and I want to do some school work with it. My budget is around Rp. 16.000.000,00 ($1200). Right now I'm considering HP Omen, but if there's other suggestion, please tell. Thanks for answering.

*8 gb ram is alright, hdd is alright (But if it has ssd it's alright too), 950m-960m is fine

Why the weight limit?

In reply to: Lightweight gaming laptop under $1200?

That extra pound could make it a far better gamer. I like the models like the ASUS ROG GL552VW-DH71 which met your price and delivered it all.

You should supply models you found in your country that met these specs.

Actually, I found a deal

In reply to: That looks to be 6 pounds.

I found a deal early this morning in a buy and sell forum here. A GS60 with 965M around $1265. But I also found an HP Omen deal with the same price in HP's website. Should I get the gs60 or the hp omen?

Me personally, I will choose the omen cause it sells in the hp official site.

HP? No sale here.

I write a little longer at http://www.cnet.com/forums/discussions/which-laptop-is-the-best/ but HP walked on the warranty and had no solution to the bug that was in that model line.

Sorry HP, you lost me. I can't imagine others that fell for your products. That is, my office supplied a replacement and would students and others be so lucky?

check if ROG G501JW (15.6"), Alienware AW13R2 (13"), and MSI PX60 (16.5") are sold in your country, they could be good fit.
