Great gaming solution on the cheap

Acer Laptop Aspire Intel Core i5 2nd Gen 2430M (2.40GHz) 4GB Memory 500GB HDD NVIDIA GeForce GT 540M Switchable Graphics 15.6" Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit AS5755G-6823

Pros: Great mobile gaming solution on the cheap. To give you an idea of what you can play here are the games I've put through the tests so far: Battlefield 3 - medium settings Skyrim - High settings Left 4 Dead 2 - High settings Team Fortress 2 - High settings Starcraft 2 - medium settings All the above run without a hitch.

Cons: None really to speak of. Screen isn't the greatest but can't complain for the price.

Not without issue

ASUS ROG G750 Series G750JW-DB71 Laptop Intel Core i7 4700HQ (2.40GHz) 12GB Memory 1TB HDD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 765M 2GB GDDR5 17.3" Windows 8 64-Bit

Pros: Laptop is fast, great cooling, plays any game out there no problem. Now see the cons.

Cons: By no means are any of these issues neweggs fault. I've ordered this model from 2 different places and both had issues. Both models I received have had stuck pixels. I think Asus really skimped on screen quality with the g750 series. Also the keyboard tends to miss keystrokes. I often find myself going back and retyping because of missed keys. Lastly, the wireless card isn't the best. Actually went out to buy an Ethernet cable instead. I'd say research this model before buying. You will see lots of people have the same problem. A lot of people talk about grey horizontal lines too though I have not experienced that.
