Gaming Laptop Recommendations?

I'm planning on getting a new laptop, probably in July or August at the earliest. My old one sucks, and I want one which is suitable for gaming.

Any recommendations? Something that's not overtly expensive? Thanks.

Look into those custom-build laptops, made by Clevo (other names include Sager and Schenker or something to that effect).

You can pick and choose what components you want, leave out things you don't need (to save moneys).

Sounds like a solid plan. Hopefully that includes no bloat ware.

When I got mine (in the UK) it just came with Windows 7 preinstalled and just the basic drivers, and laptop button control software. And that was after I selected "No Operating System" in the order form. Yes, you can actually do that. Awesome to not have to pay for Windows if you're going to put Linux on it anyway, and awesome to not have to pay for Windows 10 if you'd rather use 7.

I'm getting horribly bothered by the Install Windows 10 on my screen xD. But that sounds like a viable plan. I wanted to install Linux a few years ago but never bothered.

MS really wants ppl on win 10. It's annoying as hell.

Given that 2 of my keys on my keyboard crapped out I harbor doubts my laptop can run W10 smoothly.

You don't run W10... W10 runs you.

I read somewhere that Windows 10 installed itself on some poor girl's laptop without even asking her first. Just from a Windows 7 update. It's a bit ridiculous.

Sounds like the girl probably installed it without even knowing. All kinds of people install stuff they don't know but click on and just say "uh huh".

Why the hell did MS get rid of the damn alt-tab feature. The win 10 alt-tab is shit. It doesn't work right. Dafuq is wrong with microsoft trying to put their shitty shit out? If it ain't broken, stop trying to come up with crappy shit to replace it. FFS damn assholes.

Yep.

I still miss the old XP layout to be honest.

Make sure it uses AMD and not Intel-Nvidia.

Stay the hell away from Nvidia Optimus. It's okay when it works, but in many cases can be a right pain in the ass to get it working. And I never really have any clue what GPU is currently active. And I think there's something wrong with one of them... possibly (talking about my laptop I'm currently typing this on).

Optimus also needlessly complicates Linux drivers for no real gain. Needless to say, I turn it off at the BIOS level whenever I can.

How about Acer Predator? Bring that 5 kilo weight into coffee shop and play game. LOL. I'm just kidding. I am about to suggest the same product as hunk said above. Asus ROG
