Gaming on battery power on a 17 inch is so demanding of power that not one seems to come with a battery to hit 4 hours.
Not only that, even if the battery could muster such, it's only rated for 300 cycles and by warranty it's still good at 50% capacity. So out of the box we need 8 hours to meet this person's want or need.
There is no such laptop so far.
I'm new to the laptop world, (never owned one) although I use a Mac daily. I need something that will perform well with games, but also suit me for schooling. The laptops that I've been looking at recently are the Alienware M14x, Asus G55, and the Asus G75.
Price range-$1200 and below (I would like to stay under that if possible).
Battery life- At least 4 hours
Screen size- 17' and under
As I mentioned, I am new, so, I'm not exactly sure what I should be looking for. I won't be gaming a tremendous amount, I would just like to have a laptop that wilk perform well when I do.
