Ok I normally use a gaming laptop due to the fact i travel a lot.
Soon however i will be moving to Japan and should have a job where I can just settle down for a year or 2. So i want to get a new computer. I am not sure weather to buy a new laptop, or build a pc.
For a pc I would be using.
Hardrive, case and other parts would be purhcased when i got to japan.
(yes i stole these from a build here)
For a laptop
I would upgrade to the
® Core™ i7-2720QM Processor (2.20GHz), 6MB L3 Cache, FCPGA10/Socket G2
How much of performance difference would I see between these two?
I have some wiggle room money wise, so upgrade suggestions are welcome? but I do not want to spend 300 dollars for 10% more performance.
Currently my laptop can run most games well on medium to low settings. It can run most MMOs on high (rift for instance). So if when I travel i can always use it for the next year or 2.
I also might have a job with lots of downtime at work, so having a laptop i can toat a round might be worth a small drop in performance.
