All gaming laptops are compromises. By moving to a laptop the limits of heat dissipation and what the consumer will pay for mean it's never the system the gamer really wanted.
Try the Dell Alienware as well.
I've been looking around for a new laptop to get for my birthday in a few months time, and someone recommended the Medion Erazer X6815, as it meets my requirements.
I need a laptop that is well suited to gaming (as this is what I will be predominantly using it for) and also is reasonably good for word processing, internet browsing and watching online videos etc, although these functions are low priority, as I need it to be as good as I can afford for gaming in my price range.
I don't care at all what it looks like, as long as it is reasonably sturdy, and I don't care much for the speaker quality either. Obviously the screen has to be good quality, though.
My budget is £500-£700 or $800-$1100.
Was my friend right in recommending the Medion? And if not what others can you suggest?
Thanks in advance for any help you're willing to give
