The power of a gaming computer with the portability of a notebook. Isn't that every gamer's dream? I, for one, spent the majority of my school days playing MMORPGs in the back of all my classes, quietly minding my own business and only glancing up to answer direct inquiries - and it was great. While no laptop, designated "gaming" or otherwise, can compete with a gaming desktop, some come pretty close.
One of the biggest names in gaming computers - especially laptops - is Alienware. Besides having one of the biggest names, they also have one of the biggest price tags. In the article Best Gaming Laptops: Alienware M17 writer Dan B. weighs the pricing of this gaming laptop with its boasted features. He then compares it, point for point, to the virtually unheard of Sager NP9262, proving that you pay a lot of money just to have Alienware written on your machine.
Since Dell now owns Alienware, this list wouldn't be complete without mentioning a laptop from the Dell XPS gaming laptop line, such as the XPS M1730 Gaming Laptop, touted more for its sleek appearance than actual performance.
Our final offering from the gaming laptop line is the much more affordable MSI GX630, heralded as a budget gaming machine, but still boasting some fantastic features.
