I'm in need of a laptop to use as a secondary gaming device and could use some help getting the best bang for the buck. I dont need the best graphics while on it, but would like at least high settings on most sliders, my serious gameplay will take place at home, on my desktop.
While I know all the ins and outs about desktop hardware, I know close to nothing about how things translate in the laptop department. I'm running around in circles searching the web, and a lot of the info seems relevent to last years specs.
I keep seeing the Lenovo Y500 or Y580 being mentioned.....but I also hear a lot about companies that will make a custom laptop for you using brands like Clevo/Sager, MSI, Asus. I keep going back to http://www.xoticpc.com/custom-gaming-laptops-notebooks-15416-laptops-ct-95_51_149.html, and have had my eye on the Sager NP7352.
Being that I know nothing about mobile CPUs or GPUs....would I be getting a kick ass laptop with those specs? Is there something cheaper on the list that would make more sense....and if so, could you explain the major differences why....specifically in the GPU/CPU area.
It feels like I'd get more bang for the buck buying from a place like this (almost like building your own desktop), rather than something premade.....Is this for the most part correct? Any other suggestions?
Thanks for all your help!
