If you need a laptop

Recommended Posts

If you aren't gaming:

Lenovo Thinkpad or Macbook.

End of discussion. Make sure your operating system doesn't have the word "Basic" in it, make sure your processor doesn't have the word "Celeron" in it, and make sure you have 2 GB of ram.

If you plan on gaming, feel free to make a thread.

2 components of support; warranties and actual help. They are shit when it comes to helping, however they have some amazing warranties. Free 1 year accidental damage warranty with all new computers, free 2 year parts and labor with all new computers. Its prolly because of that they got number 1 in service, their help line is terrible tho lol.

Again, regardless, asus is prolly the 2nd best (behind lenovo) laptop brand for windows.

It uses plastic instead of magnesium which means its a touch less durable, and breaks IBM+Lenovo's 'no unneccesary lighting' rule, and its not as thin or light as the other thinkpad series. Oh and the lid is glossy so it'll gather more fingerprints

That said its still more durable than any competition offering, it's still incredibly well built, and it's still the best you gonna find.

I want to get a laptop that can comfortably 16 table poker sites, as well as being able to do all the regular shit and hook up to my tv/other monitor, and be able to play games like call of duty. I'm looking at a spending range of about $1800 USD. Suggestions?

Well yeah, high end Asus laptops are definitely for gaming if that's what you're looking for. The Thinkpad W series is a workstation built for graphic designing.

can't go wrong with i7, double harddrive, + free shit :\

Depends on your situation, but desktop is more affordable and expandable.

• DVD Supermulti

• Wireless + Bluetooth + HDMI

• Webcam

500 GB HDD

16" screen

4 GB RAM

Windows 7 Home Premium

$1494

Toshiba Satellite 16" Notebook

• Intel Core 2 Duo P8800

2.66ghz CPU

• DVDRW Supermulti

• Wireless 802.11 A/G/N

Are either of these any good? Also, would they have HDMI ports? I want to be able to hook it up to my LCD TV etc.

The first one obviously has HDMI.

It also looks like a solid machine in general. Toshiba have quality control issues so id avoid them, go with the first one, solid pc, will serve you just as well as the second one, def has HDMI, and less likely to fuck up
