whats the best laptop for video games

i move around way too often to own an enormous custom built desktop, so im looking for a laptop thats good for video games (any price will be fine)

right now i use a shitty HP notebook

help /v/

>i move around way too often to own an enormous custom built desktop
Is a mini-ITX/ micro-ATX system out of the question?

If you have space for a laptop, you have space for a desktop. Don't waste money on a "gaming" laptop.
>>
>>322676263

This. There's plenty of small form-factor desktops you can build that will play vidya far better than laptops of similar price while not taking up much room.

If you're one of those "I MUST BE ABLE TO PLAY VIDYA ANYWHERE AT ANY TIME" people and won't settle for anything other than a laptop, then go for ASUS, they make decent laptops with decent performance for the prices.

whut

>>322676679
assuming you're OP I'm just trying to determine what you mean by "i move around way too often".
Are you on business trips all the time or does your job just have you relocating around every 6 months?

I love how most of /v/ spends so often doing absolutely nothing that they assume they are actually answering people's questions when they go "I know this won't work for you at all, but do it anyway otherwise you're an idiot"
>>
>>322677243
>trying to get a better understanding of OP's stiuation
>"I know this won't work for you at all, but do it anyway otherwise you're an idiot"

Dude what?
>>
Go for one of the lenovo y series of laptops.

Suggestion that most people will see as suffering, go for a laptop with a 1366x768 display so the hardware doesnt suffer as much.

>>322676293
it's not 2006 anymore anon.
>>
>>322676027
get a lenovo y510p or whatever the current equivalent is
>>
op here

i'm a couchsurfer, it's a long story
i don't want to go into detail, i just want a good laptop

i'll look into it

MSI Has generally better 'gaming' laptops than Alienware and Razer at a better pricepoint.

Only other acceptable brand would be an ASUS gaming laptop.
>>
>>322677790
Out of the three replies that >>322677243 quoted, only one fits your "trying to understand OP situation better"

The other two are retards going "durr you shouldn't buy a laptop".

Dude said he needs a laptop, either provide a laptop or fuck off.

It's getting hard to believe you subhuman chimps can even read.

>"I move around way too often to own an enormous custom built desktop, so im looking for a laptop."
>"Have you considered dragging around a slightly smaller computer, with all the trimmings?"

The guy you're quoting is right. OP explained his situation perfectly really, or least enough to understand that a mini-ITX is out of the question. Like you have niggers this retarded >>322676438 griping about space when the OP doesn't mention space even once.
>>
The only laptops I found that weren't horribly bottlenecked somehow were ASUS. And Alienware, but their prices are unreasonable.

But you should note that having a powerful laptop doesn't mean you can actually play games on the go. You're still going to need a mouse, charger plugged in, etc.
>>
>>322678401
I need my dick sucked, on your knees

Check out ASUS. I have had some excellent laptops from them and still use one from 2010 to game on. Reasonable prices and great performance.

spend money on an apartment then not a laptop.

>>322679302

Nobody gives a shit about helping a retard. The internet is at your fingertips and you choose to ask /v/ about buying a gaming laptop, something my 12-year old nephew was able to do on his own.
>>
>>322676027

>laptop
>games

just dont come back here crying that /v/ tricked you into pc games
>>
>>322679706
¯\_(ツ)_/¯

most of the shit on the internet is self-endorsed bullshit that are written by people who want you to sell their product

i'd rather ask people who actually play video games themselves

just kidding

wow it's almost like if OP explained why he thinks he needs a laptop none of this would have happened
>>
>>322680089

Op checking in..

>/v/ plays videogames.
>Playing videogames means they know fuckall about laptop hardware in an army of cosolites and MOBA fags with toasters.
>You're still too stupid to look up laptop hardware specs.
>>
>>322680702
you MAY have, haha!
>>
IF you don't mind the price and low battery autonomy, get an upper rand MSI one.
>>
>>322681086
>low battery autonomy

wat
>>
General advice
-In [the current year] I'd be looking at a 970M minimum
-If you can avoid it, don't get an SSD with it, the premium you pay for it isn't worth it, and you can one in later for much less.
>>
>>322676027
>vidya
>laptop
Choose one and go back to reddit.
>>
>>322681192
you won't play for 2 hours without plugging it.

I'm running an old Asus G73JW, which I've had for 4 or 5 years. It has been a good one for me, but I'm looking to upgrade sometime soon. I have my eye set on the G751, and space is indeed an issue for me, even if it's a pretty big laptop.
>>
Check out the laptops at Digital Storm. I have one from them that has lasted 4 years and I can still play pretty much most games at high graphics
>>
>>322681958

pretty much any "gaming" laptop will be like that, the MSI ones have the lowest temp as far as I know and average autonomy.
>>
>>322676263
Not OP here, but this solution requires you to move around a monitor + mouse and keyboard aswell.

Not that i would ever settle for a laptop myself, but i see the issue if you travel alot.
>>
>>322682419
Do you know what autonomy means?
>>
>>322683625
Yes? Do you not want your battery to walk around and make its own decisions for longer than two hours?
>>
Don't know why I'm asking /v/, but are there any navyfags in here? In a couple weeks I'm going to be stationed aboard a ship for the foreseeable future, and I want to know whether I should bring my PC, buy a gayman laptop, or neither.
>>
>>322676027
When will the League of Legends meme end?
Kids have such awful taste nowadays
>>
>>322676679
Nevermind you're retarded and don't deserve anything, even my son can tell you what a mini-atx is

I don't understand why people stop learning once they hit age 14
>>
>>322686465
Buy the ship you mong.
