I have been wanting/wishing for a laptop for some time now and this search has enabled me to find some of the best laptops out on the market.
Here is my breakdown:
Best: Hp Pavillion zd8000 customized (2000$ w/accessories)
Worst: Alienwares/Dells Gaming Laptops: Too expensive, and not good
Reason for HP Pavillion zd800: I am a gamer, I am a student, I am a power user. The zd8000 is a powerhouse and only 1800 for what i want!!! My brother just recieved a laptop for his graduation and i suggested to get the zd8000, and he did!! It is excellent, i am on it right now and i find that its resolution is just something to stare are for the longest time. It is insannnneeee, and i am not joking
