Best performance laptop $1250

What is the best laptop with the max price of $1250? I am considering this: Acer | Aspire V3 | Aspire V3-772G-9422 | Overview I want a new laptop to go with the new PC I am getting in a few months since my current laptop does not meet my needs anymore.

It would be hard for anyone to tell you "what is best". That is certainly a nice laptop. The only thing I see that I don't like is Windows 8.

Would there be anything better? I want something that is NOT a hybrid and NOT a Ultrabook. It just does not feel right to have a piece of electronic that feels like nothing.

Hi there
It's hard to give advice on this -- especially these days as a lot of people are buying tablets and lower priced laptops -- I regard myself as a decent power user - yet I find a standard 14 inch HP laptop with 8GB RAM and an i5 processor more than enough for me -- I don't want a huge 17 inch laptop -- to heavy for travel and I have a few desktops at home anyway -- so my maximum spend on a laptop would be around 4 - 600 USD - and for around 600 USD you can get quite a decent laptop -- so for your budget - I can't really advise you.

perhaps list down what you want the laptop to do and whether it's a laptop that you would use on the move or a "desktop replacement".

Cheers
jimbo

I want to have two performance systems available. I already choose the XPS 8700 as my desktop choice so I want something that has the same or more performance than the laptop. I know that since all those parts have to be cramped in there so I will raise my budget to $1500.
Here is my list of required components:
• A 4th Gen Quad Core i7 Processor
• Dedicated graphics (Nvidia is preferred)
• A 256gb ssd or 128/256gb SSD with a 5400rpm HDD combo or a 7200 rpm drive (Least preferred)

The ones you have pointed out are nice. If that is what you feel is right, go for it.

So I'm guessing the ASUS would be better because it is more gaming optimized which I do need. I do not care about the size and weight because all I want is PERFORMANCE and I will do any sacrifice for it (except for money unless there is a big deal for that laptop)
