I am looking to purchase a gaming laptop. Looking to spend 2000-3000. Can someone tell me what is a better option the AW m17x or the Sager NP7280? Or any other laptop that is better.
Help with purchasing a gaming laptop
It is a gift for my nephew. He wanted a gaming unit cause his dorm room is small. He wants it for high powered gaming, streaming movies from netflix, playing blue rays, school work and he does some music editing. He said it didnt need to be so portable. Also i noticed AW recommended the nvidia geforce gtx 460m but they also had an option for a radeon HD 6970m video card. There was quite a bit of price difference between the two. Is the 6970 that much better? I suppose i would rather spend more money to have the laptop last with the gaming end for a while. Is there any specifications from the base models that would make the laptop better for game. I have no idea about computers at all.
