Oh, I see. That certainly is something to consider! I've only owned Dell laptops, have no experience with any other brand. Thanks for your input!

of course you can buy alienware's and other extremely expensive laptops and get an amazing graphics card but if you're going for something that costs less than $2000 then you wont get top of the line graphics
