    I am looking for a good (cheap) gaming laptop. I have about $3.3k saved up so far through my deployment. Looking to spend around $2-2.5k on a good gaming laptop. I know most good ones are $3k. Anyone have any suggestions not Alienware?

    Good and cheap don't go together
    However a laptop that costs $2-2.5k is not considered cheap by any means

    Most decent gaming laptops shouldn't run more than 1500-2000.

    Gateway had a pretty kickass gaming rig for around $1200, FX series or something. Otherwise I've always liked Sager computers (Alienware uses them as their base machines).

    Gaming laptop? Oxymoron.

    Gaming pc will be a joke in the future also.

    I really cant stand how every gaming laptop topic on the internet eventually degenerates into "buy a desktop noob".

    Im not talking about you in particular, but what the fuck is the deal with PC gamers and their attitude?

    Is there something inherent in hardcore PC gaming that turns people into angry, elitist bitches?

    They changed around that line a lot. I had a 7811-FX that crapped out on me and they said they didn't make it anymore. They sent me a 7809u. It's pretty nice but it ways a ton and isn't exactly ultraportable.

    Aren't there some hardcore laptops out there that basically use desktop GFX cards?

    And i'm guessing they go through batteries like toffee :o
