Gaming laptops are turning in the lowest number of months till you see then sent in for repair. I can't tell if its the users pounding on the keyboards or the scorching heat from the hyper graphics chips inside but in this genre you no longer expect them to last but a few years. No maker has this one nailed.
To extend the life I strongly suggest an external keyboard and a laptop cooling pad.
As far as best gaming laptop/notebook. Which of these high-end brands seem to have the best overall configurations and reliability? I know that all of these could easily run around $1,500 or more, but then again, I'm hoping that one of these would come out to be best bang for the buck at the end of the day. What does everyone think?
