Looking into buying a gaming laptop, searched around and ended up deciding on this: https://m.newegg.com/products/N82E16834861167

Needing to know your alls opinions, and if this would be a good deal. Intend to play Various MMOs (EQ2 SWTOR, etc..) and games like Fallout 4, ARK, COD, basically a little bit of anything.
Thanks in advanced!

What games are you intending to play?

 

Are you planning on using this system for new games or old ones?

Do you have a price limit? I bought mine 4 years ago at cyberpowerpc.com. It was around $1000 and I think they still have some around that price. I think, personal opinion, they're better than the Dell you're looking at. :blink:

I put together this list on machines from New Egg, the main difference with them having a Solid State Drive (SSD) over a mechanical drive.  While the drive size is about 1/4 of the mechanical drive the speed gain and having no moving parts make them a better selection for a laptop.  If you need additional space you can always get some external storage or a USB device.

 

The system you linked is solid, but these days I always recommend a SSD boot drive, especially for laptops.

 

The main issue I have with gaming laptops is very limited upgrade options, more RAM and a bigger drive are about it.

I went ahead and ordered a Dell Inspiron 7000 with the 1060 and 1TB 250ssd. Went with a newer model that has the IPS instead of the panel. Read some reviews and hopefully it works out well.
Thanks all!
