Default Hey guys... I need a new laptop within the next week

Thanks for looking. I need a laptop in the next week or so. I am split in between a lot of laptops, and don't know ati gpus... I would like to play games such as, lfd2, modern ware fare 2, and so on... I am going to do video editing also, so a little on the powerful side for cpu. I already have a gaming rig, but I need a laptop. I don't care how heavy it is, but would like it to be above 15.6" if possible, I would really like 17.3" or above too. Don't care about any other special features or anything... Any questions please post on this post, please do not pm me, unless its important.

Also would like to be as cheap as possible, since I have to pay for it. <$1100 but would like it to be around $800

You're going to have horrible battery-life with that big of a screen while taxing the cpu

This is the best deal I have ever seen on a gaming laptop. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16834220707 Buy this and it will max most of your games.

And the battery life is not really an issue. ASUS put a huge 8-cell battery in there.

EDIT: Newegg just put it in their newsletter. Buy it ASAP.

Yes. I was just about to say the Asus G73JH-X1...very nice choice. Sick graphics card and of course that i7 CPU. I haven't had any personal experience with it. But if I were to buy a laptop right now, it'd be that one.

You should really consider the one I posted. It has the same GPU as the ASUS G, so will perform fairly close to it in games, has all the other features you wanted, but costs half the price. The i7 we are comparing it with is horribly slow compared to desktop i7s, so it is really not worth the money over the cheaper one.

foothead - The Asus G73JH-X1 has the Mobility Radeon HD 5870. It's quite possible the fastest mobile GPU available.
