Thread: decent gaming laptop <1000$?

  1. Default decent gaming laptop <1000$?

    1- Hey everyone ,so am trying to get myself a new laptop after throwing my old laptop from the 4th floor window (hp pavillion dv9000 laggy overheating piece of SHIT).

    so i figured might as well getting a gaming one? hopefully 15.6 '' + , with 4+ gb ram and 250 + GB space, with a gd graphic card to support CSS and eve starcraft2 and others?, gd sound card for strong audio, and with a gd core processor? oh yeah, and under 1000 $ ?
    i duno much of brands, but i know that hp, toshiba, sony or asus (any gd?) arent half bad. MAC GO TO HELL!!!! :P hehehehe
    So calling out all computer nerds around, and requesting help to find such a laptop?
    -------
    EDIT: 2- on a side note, i just saw a couple laptops that some are above my budget but seem decent, can u guys give me ur opinion?:

    candidate 1 (the one am considering the most now, but a little over my budget, considering am getting myself an iphone 4 and a new fucking car at the same time -.-):
    http://www.bestbuy.ca/en-CA/product/...2aff0ca552en02

    candidate 2: (not gaming but cheap and kinda solid):
    http://www.bestbuy.ca/en-CA/product/...08b4a61292en02

    candidate 3: http://www.amazon.com/Republic-Gamer...f=pd_rhf_p_t_2
    falls right in budget (999$) and seems decent? what about the G51JX-A1 (1400$) version of it (same page)?

    so nways... thats what am seeing at best but, if u have other suggestions, it would be appreciated... again, i think i made my point about too overheating laptops:P

    The term gaming laptop is an ugly phrase, you want power? you sacrifice portability. you want portability? you have to sacrifice power. you want both? well your going to have to pay out the ass.

    Also we have a PC tech thread you know , anyways ill look through some laptops ~800-1100 when im bored for you

    why do you need a laptop? i've found that you get a lot more for your money in a desktop. i understand if your in college or w/e but in that case just get a shitty as used laptop.

    Heres a good one over your budget
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16834152196

    A better combo with that kind of budget would be a 250-300 netbook and a 700$ desktop with real power. Ill keep looking for you though for something with a lower price w/o sacrificing to much performance.

    hall...u see, i already have another desktop :P the one i use to rape ur ass in game
    but i'm gettign a new laptop too, so that i dnt stay away from the GG world when am staying at my friends' place:P

    Starsmine, i want power BIG TIME in a computer, bcos i fucking game a lot , and watch movies and stuff regularly and need gd audio and video and thats why i always went for a 17''. as long as the battery can last at least 2 hours if am not gaming on it, and doesnt over heat much.

    however,i'm considering downgrading to a 15.6'' bcos i found it easier to carry and work with on a tight desk at university... but either way, let me know man and i didnt know about the other pc thread :P

    well this one isnt nearly as strong as the other one, this one will play crysis on medium at 1280x1024 at 40fps(but i dont think you will be gaming at that resolution w/ a laptop). That MSI is probably the best power/price laptop I have ever seen, cheapest mobile 5870 (most powerfull laptop GPU on the market) on newegg
