Reapers...


« on: January 06, 2008, 02:21:56 AM »

16 months ago I bought a super duper Toshiba laptop with massive storage and a powerful graphics card for 2000 USD, all conceived to play high requirement pc games. I am a former gamer and as all gamers know we don't game for a hour or 2, no, make it 10 or 12...well to make a long story short, my laptop is dying and I just want to warn people there is no such thing as a games laptop; don't waste your money.

I still don't understand why people by laptops to replace a stand alone system. I think they are great as an add on but they aren't the end all.

Well, if you travel/move a lot getting a laptop could get handy.
I'm thinking about getting one soon, and i want to able to play starcraft 2 (when that hits the shelves)...
But gaming for very long is probably not that good... cooling is usually a problem for laptops.

What do you mean, "it's dying"

Im not being funny but surely you should have realised this before purchasing!! Seems like an expensive mistake!

dell's XPS line is great for gaming, largely because you can replace and upgrade all of the components.

if you're a serious gamer and have that kind of cash, though, your money would be better spent on a beefy desktop system with a midrange notebook for travel.

I play all my games on a lap top..smokes Call of Duty 4 but i can't even load Crysis. I'm going to get a Gaming rig in the spring. Even Alienware laptops can't handle the top games..unless u tone down the graphics. U just can't shove a big enough card/fan/chipset ina laptop.

There is a games laptop... It's a Dell XPS.

The top tier one is currently the Dell XPS 1730... I have a 1710 myself with a 7950GT mobile in it... It's a great machine.

If you're expecting to game on a laptop though, you're going to have to replace the thing at least every year to keep up with the latest game updates... That's just life.
