>1600 dollars at best buy
>probably 1000 dollars at Newegg

why wouldn't you build a gaming computer for the same price with better stuff? do you need it to be portable so everyone can see how much money you wasted on it?

>>51525607
It's a pretty good computer.
However it has dem huge ass bezels.

>thermal throttling
>loud as fuck
>needlessly heavy
>vastly overpriced compared to a desktop solution
>shitty battery life

If you need your gaymen on the go then get a shield tablet and a real desktop for less than the price of the laptop. Use Nvidia game stream and you're all set.

The old tried and true conclusion
>laptop
>gaming
Pick one.

>>51525645

>>51526006
Amazing , ty
>>
>>51526006
Similar price is +400$ ?
>>
>>51526041
Drop the monitor and then it's only +$200. Regardless you're getting a lot more than $200 of performance as opposed to that laptop.
>>
>>51525607
>17,3"
Too large to be carrying it anywhere
More expensive than a similar desktop
Also these:

>>51526006
>core i7 for $420
are you serious
>>
>>51526101
Could get a 6600k for $250 and drop the monitor. Then you're only $50 over the laptop price while still blowing it way the fuck out of the water.

I love this meme
>No OS
>No monitor
>No K/M
>No disc drive of any kind
>Intel $420 Blaze it

Golden rule never do take /g/ 100% seriously.

The point still valid, but take into account a gaming laptop is well... a fucking laptop

>physical media 2015 shiggy diggy
>that's the price premium of new shit, for $150 less he can still get his gaymen performance with the 6600k
