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
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.
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"
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.
it's not 2006 anymore anon.
MSI Has generally better 'gaming' laptops than Alienware and Razer at a better pricepoint.
Only other acceptable brand would be an ASUS gaming laptop.
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.
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.
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
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.
-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.
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.
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.
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.
