So I’m looking for a good gaming notebook but it has to be cheap because money is a real issue. My first thought went to Alien Ware and I made myself a killer configuration:
Area-51® m9750 System
Video/Graphics Card: Dual 512MB NVIDIA® GeForce™ 8700M GT – SLI Enabled
Chassis: 17″ WideUXGA 1920 x 1200 LCD with Clearview Technology – Stealth Black
Processor: Intel® Core™ 2 Duo Processor T7600 2.33GHz 4MB Cache 667MHz FSB
Memory: 4GB Dual Channel DDR2 SO-DIMM at 667MHz – 2 x 2048MB
Notebook Tuners and Remotes: Without Media Center Remote Control or TV Tuner
System Drive: Single Drive Configuration – 160GB 7,200RPM (8MB Cache)
Optical Drives : 2x Blu-ray Writer/DVD±RW Burner
Wireless Network Card: Internal Intel® PRO Wireless 3945 a/b/g Mini-Card
Sound Card : Creative SoundBlaster X-Fi Xtreme Audio
Mouse: Razer Copperhead™ High Precision Gaming Mouse – Chaos Green Edition
Cool right? The only problem was the payment: $4400, now this WAAAAAAY more than I can afford so, upset, I’ve closed alien ware’s page and went to dell.com as i remembered they had some good gaming notebooks. I chose a 17″ inch notebook, it’s actually a XPS 1730 with the following configuration
Nothing too fancy, this was actually the cheapest model they had($2500), if I were to go all the way, I would have got the same model but added a couple of features, it would had looked something like this
Now this bad boy went jumped to a stunning $5000 and this would be also WWWWAAAAYYY out of my range. The first choice though would really recommend.
I’m still looking and i want to make the right decision, if you have any ideas please leave a comment.
