Help choosing a gaming laptop
I can spend 1000 dollars or a little more on a gaming laptop. (I don't have room for a desktop). I want the best specs i can get for the money. Suggestions?

also desktop pc gaming well be way faster then any laptop slower cpu, videocard doesnt equal performance of a desktop computer. plus real pc gamers play on desktop.

make sure it has an i5 qm or i7 qm (quad core mobile)
not all i5m/i7m are quads
and a gtx x60+ card

all i5 mobile is a dual core cpu with hyperthreading. total of 4 but its still a dual core.

dual with ht does not = 4 cores, its 2 cores with 4 threads

Are there better laptop choices available than alienware? Cyberpowerpc's laptops seem to have serious problems.

any laptop could be better than aliendell

look for msi or toshiba

Ok i found lenovo idea pad y510p its got i7, 16gb of ram, 2 nvidia 755m 2gb graphics cards, 1tb hard drive at 5400 rpm with 8gb sad also. It god good reviews and is only $1099 on amazon. Is there anything wrong with this laptop that i'm missing?

not bad, though you can do slightly better on the graphics card. On the link rotNdude posted, any of the laptops on the fourth row down (starting with MSI Force 16GC (765M)) would be a slightly better bet, as they have a slightly better graphics card, plus you can get Assassin's Creed IV free (which is friggin' awesome :D).

The ones I suggested come with 8GB RAM - 16GB RAM is kinda unnecessary right now and money spent on more graphics would be a wiser move

That would cost me a little more... are 2 nvidia gt755ms worse than 1 765m? The website charges me at least 100 dollars for an OS.

Ah my mistake - missed that it was actually 2 GT 755Ms in SLI! Ummm well the short answer is I don't know, so I recommend looking up reviews for both (preferably that use the same games as a benchmark). With 2 cards in SLI, some games exhibit problems of scaling with multiple graphics cards, but as I said, looking at reviews will give you the best idea. If the one you're looking at includes the OS then that is a pretty good deal

Yeah reading that, you end up with the same number of CUDA cores (768) but operating at a higher clockspeed with the 755M SLI
