Hello. I'm thinking of buying a new laptop that I will use for gaming. I have been looking at the Alienware M15x, and been watching reviews on youtube to see how good it is for gaming.
Currently I have a Dell Inspiron 1720:
Intel Core 2 Duo CPU 2GHz(Centrino if that helps)
NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT
It do works fine on many games. But there is alot of games I can't play. The games I play at the moment is Fallout New Vegas with lowest settings and at some places quite good lag^^ and the same with Rainbow Six Vegas, but with just minor lag.
I am planing to have a computer that will be able to run The Elders Scroll Skyrim when it comes out and it seems that the M15x might be able to run it good.(have seen on youtube people play Crysis on hight-very hight settings)
I DON'T want a desktop so we have that said. And don't wont to spent more than what I belive is 2 242 USD? live in Sweden so can't tell if that is the exact. And I want to know how much better Alienware M15x is compared to my current.
I have a hard time to customize the laptop so need help. Is the Intel Core i3 370M good for gaming when you have 512MB GeForce GT240M and 3GB RAM?
Sorry for long post and thanks for all help I can get.
