Windows 7: good gaming laptops?

good gaming laptops?

Finally bought my new gaming rig so I can finally play all my games on high to very high. And now I wanted to move on to gaming laptops for when I'm really bored on long road trips or just travel in general. I want something that's capable of playing games like Crysis and Crysis 2 at high-very high but for an affordable price e.x. 800-950 dollars or lower is good that's just the maximum price range I'll go to. Help appreciated.

Bottom Line is, gaming laptops just aren't worth it. If you got the spare cash, go for it. Gaming Lap tops just don't compare to a good rig. Build a another rig, for a friend or as a backup.

Eventually someone will figure it out, and design a gaming laptop in which the gpu can be somehow slid out of the enclosure and cool itself properly.
As long as they continue with traditional laptop design heat is always going to be a very serious problem.
It's simply too cramped in there to cool both an active cpu and a active gpu.
Someone is going to have to think outside the box (quite literally in this case) to solve the problem.
So far I haven't seen anything like this.

There are some cooler laptops that don't even require cooling pads, but they are mostly just standard to medium range laptops. Still, many have the capability to play games rather well, so long as you don't load crysis on ultra high settings (joking). If you can settle for medium settings in games that are not too graphically taxing to the system, you might look around google for a cool 'gaming' laptop that doesn't come with gut-busting gpu technology but gets the job done

External Video Cards and GPU's: What Are External Graphics Processing Units (GPU) | Suite101.com

check this out this would be the best possible solution but at the same time it is external and would require some working with but none the less heating issues would not be to much different then in a desktop

Yeah really waiting on thunderbolt or one of the new external plug in methods to become more widely available before investing my love into external graphics.

Very understandable ,I just wondering how come no-one gave the OP a choice like this

I think it is something good to look into especially if your not tech savy and afraid to be messing around inside a unfamilliar situation

I think this was long over due especially with how GPU'S are almost a dime a dozen these days

Well the problem I suppose is finding the hardware that will support everything you need for it that won't leave you eating hotdogs for a month because you just spent all your money , refinanced your house, and sold your car so you could buy it.

Well hopefully the person will use better judgment and save but then again that is up to the buyer !
