Question

What gaming laptop to buy?

by ameypatil21 / December 7, 2015 8:58 PM PST

Hey People.
I want to buy a gaming laptop that would run/play Fallout 4 and other major AAA games in ultra . I am planning to buy the

ASUS ROG G751JY-WH71(WX) with

Intel Core i7-4720HQ 2.6GHz (turbo up to 3.6 GHz).
16 GB RAM.
1 TB 7200RPM Hard Drive + 128 GB Solid State Drive.
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980M with 4GB DDR5 VRAM (G-Sync)
17.3" IPS FHD matte display (1920x1080) with built in G-sync hardware.

Is there any other laptop or a cheaper version you guys can suggest besides the ASUS ROG?

My budget is about $1400 to $1600(anything cheaper will also do Happy )

Thanks a ton.

You have the i7 and about the max you find today in the GPU. Good find.

and the Alienware 17 right next to each other. The AW has the resolution almost twice that. I would just go look and compare.
