5. The MacBook Pro 15-inch
With a 2.2 GHz Intel Core i7 Sandy Bridge HD 3000 processor, 4GB of 13333 MHz memory, and a HD AMD Radeon Graphics processor, the MacBook Pro 15 inch is a good gaming laptop. Considering that Apple never had an intention of creating a laptop for gaming purposes, the MacBook Pro can be installed with some of the newest games available today. The Thunderbolt connection is a great feature within the MacBook Pro that lets you connect to any display device with a resolution of 2560×1600. Talk about clear and crisp gaming!
Unfortunately, just like most Apple computers, there are only a few games that is compatible with the MacBook Pro.
4. The Alienware M11x
Dell showcases its newest model coming from the Alienware line-up. The Alienware M11x has a smaller screen than most gaming laptops but features a well built system that maximizes the laptop’s performance during extended hours of gaming. But the main issue with the Alienware M11x is that it traded high end gaming performance to portability. Sure, if you want to play games while travelling is a good thing, but if you want a great gaming laptop, then look somewhere else.
3. The Falcon Northwest TLX
The Falcon Northwest TLX is an interesting gaming laptop, powered by an Intel Core i7 2630QM processor with four cores and a clock speed of 2 GHz. Not bad for a gaming laptop, but certainly not the very best as well. The Falcon also comes with 4GB of RAM, which is not exactly the best, but is enough to make most decent online or offline games run without problems. If you love sleek and thin gaming laptops, then you’ll love the Falcon Northwest TLX because of it. Otherwise, you can always check out other gaming laptops available in the market.
2. The Origin Eon17
With an i7 950 processor and a GTX 460M video card, the Origin Eon17 is probably one of the best gaming laptop. With those kinds of specifications, you could probably play most online or offline video games that you’ve been drolling to play while travelling or if you are spending the holidays out of the country. However, the Origin Eon17′s one hour battery life and small hard disk drive are major turnoffs, as well as its $ 2,326.00 price!
1. The Asus 674SX
Probably the best among the five, the Asus 674SX is backed up by a NVIDIA Geforce GTX 560M video card, Intel Core i7 processor and 12GB RAM. Definitely the sweetest deal if you want to get your hands on the best gaming laptop as of the moment!
