I have a an alienware m15x laptop and while it was pretty good when i got it, it is pretty much done for and the fact it being a laptop really limits my options on upgrade it. i got this laptop not just for gaming but for school as well but ive burned out 2 different brand new batteries. But i want to get a new laptop not just for school but for gaming as well.
Laptop or Desktop? Laptop
My budget for the new computer is: i was thinking under $2000 but i might be able to afford a bit over
What are the primary uses for this computer (IE: mail, web browsing, programming, games, etc)? Gaming, streaming video(netflix, amazon prime ect.)
What software do you intend on using on the computer? Steam, microsoft office just basic stuff
Do you play games? If so, what type of games? i play a lot of games on steam the ones i want to try out is mainly ARK and elite dangerous
Do you tend to have a lot of programs running at the same time, or do you close every program when you are done using it?
um i tend not to run to many things at the same time but the ability to do so would be nice
Do you store a lot of pictures or music on the computer? um i normally use pandora or spotify and i use a few pictures
Will you be overclocking? um i dont really know what that means other than its something to do with RAM?
Location for online shopping/shipment/prices? um i would probably order it online idk where from maybe some recommendations?
How many monitors are you planning to use? probably just the laptop by itself i dont have a lot space but i do have a tv that could be used as an extra monitor
Do you need peripherals? OS? idk what peripherals are/is? um i honestly dont like windows 8 that much but maybe i just need to try it out more and windows 10 is coming out soon anyway
Any particular reason why you are upgrading? my current laptop is dieing
i would like to get something that could stay useable for awhile so i was hoping for something with 16gigs of ram probably a terabyte hardrive and probably a quad core i7 processor and hopefully be in my price range. i was thinking about staying with alienware and getting the 17 but idk maybe i can get something comprable for less
