If you are looking for an All-in-one brand new gaming laptop, you are most likely going to have to go the Alienware route. With the exception of a few others, the Alienware M18X is one the best new gaming laptops you can buy. If you go to the Alienware website and order a M18X it will come with: An Extreme 2nd Gen Intel® Core™ i7 processor, 32GB DDR3 of performance memory, dual hard drives, Wireless, lag-free HD video and audio streaming withWirelessHD and 2GB GDDR5 NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 580M graphics card, among other things.
Now there are a few things to look out for when you plan on purchasing a new gaming laptop. A top of the line graphics card is a must. The 2GB GDDR5 NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 580M graphics card is, in my opinion, the best graphic card out there today. Having 2 gigs of dedicated memory just for video processing is ideal. There have been a number of times when I have been playing an online FPS (first person shooter) where the video lag has cost me kills or given up my position because my computer’s video processing has to catch up with the server. It’s frustrating to say the least.
Another must have on your new gaming laptop is RAM. The Alienwarev M18X come with 32GB DDR3 of performance memory. 32BG is more than enough to support any 3D or high graphics engine game out right now. Ram is important because on only it help support you dedicated video memory, but being able to control commands that are not visual is an often overlooked importance in games today. Being able to support the game itself and sustain a high frame rate and low latency while constantly sending and receiving server info is a lot to handle.
The M18X is a wise choice for the latest in gaming laptops. High performing laptops are not just for games either. Video processing is great for 3D movies, streaming videos online, online chatting or video conferences; there are several uses for a higher performing laptop. Whether or not you have a need for these amenities of the Alienware M18X is something you’ll have to figure for yourself.
