USA, $900-1000, Gaming/Allround Laptop

One of the best options (IMO) is not on Amazon. The Dell Inspiron 7567 with the IPS screen option. Solid build quality and also better battery life than most other options. http://www.dell.com/en-us/member/shop/productdetails/inspiron-15-7567-laptop/fncwf514s?selectionState=eyJGUHJpY2UiOjg4MS45OSwiT0MiOiJmbmN3ZjUxNHMiLCJRdHkiOjEsIk1vZHMiOlt7IklkIjo3NjAsIk9wdHMiOlt7IklkIjoiRkhETlQifV19LHsiSWQiOjU3MiwiT3B0cyI6W3siSWQiOiJGRzAwMjgifV19XX0%253D

Just make sure you get that IPS screen. Currently no upcharge, but I’d say it’s definitely worth the $50 otherwise (unless you planned to replace it yourself with an even better one or something). It’s this kind of difference: http://imgur.com/Sajajqc.jpg

Speaking of better IPS screens, though… while the Inspiron 7567 IPS upgrade definitely lets you avoid poor contrast and viewing angles, I think it’s only has something like 55%-65% sRGB colorspace coverage. If you wanted truer colors for video editing, the Eluktronics N850HK1 has 82%-90% sRGB coverage on its screen. https://www.amazon.com/Eluktronics-N850HK1-Premium-Performance-Laptop/dp/B06X6BB9F7/

– Only applies to the Eluktronics version. Other companies sell their own branded versions of the Clevo N850 barebone, but Eluktronics in particular is choosing to use a nicer screen.
– Says they offer 4K but it’s PenTile (RG/BW) / not true 4K. More info in the sidebar. 4K means non-native-res in gaming and you’d want to make sure your video editing software scales properly, but if you wanted 4K I would choose a refurb Dell Inspiron 7567 4K model from the Dell Outlet.

Denmark, 1600EUR/1700$, portable 15" gaming laptop that doesn't look like one

Posted on: April 5, 2017 by LonerIM2

I am not sure if this will be available in Denmark but if it is not maybe you can use a shipping forward service and get this Eluktronics because it comes with everything you need , i7 quad core CPU which is one of the best in the market and great for gaming, 8 GB of ram for smooth multitasking, 1 TB of HDD for storage, Full HD screen which is a must have for this price range, high build quality, subtle looking, comes with 1050Ti GPU that should be able to handle the games you mentioned on medium to high settings with very good FPs, and it is within your budget

Looking for semi-budget gaming laptop (USA, $600 to $800 preferably, up to $1,000 if necessary)

Posted on: April 4, 2017 by edit1754

These are all good options for the price.

**HP Pavilion 15t**

– http://store.hp.com/us/en/pdp/Laptops/hp-power-pavilion-laptop–15t-x7p44av-1
– **$649 at the moment!** Default $849, and regularly goes down to $700-$750, which is still a good price.
– Note: Offered UHD display is PenTile (RG/BW) not-true-UHD. See /r/SuggestALaptop/ sidebar for more info. This isn’t the laptop I would pick if you want UHD. If you want UHD, my recommendation will actually go for the Dell Inspiron 7567, 4K IPS model. Or, chose the 17.3″ Pavilion, as its UHD is also the real deal. I don’t recommend the FHD models of the Inspiron 7567, since it’s a very low quality TN panel.
– Review vs Inspiron: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EBtF6iRA6IQ
– The HP Omen 15t / 17t is very similar, the main differences being looks, pricing / discount timings, and offered options (including a GTX 1050 Ti).

– Pick the IPS panel option since the stock display is similarly poor to the Inspiron. They only recently added this option, and it may not have made it to pre-config listings on Amazon/Newegg yet, which is why I didn’t link those. If you’re recommending this laptop to others, I would be sure to include this detail.

– The Eluktronics model costs more. The advantage with them is that they’re very straightforward about which LCD you get. The N850HK1 is confirmed to use the LG LP156WF6-SPB1, a panel with 72% NTSC color gamut rather than 45% (more saturated colors on top of the good contrast and viewing angles of IPS). The others may very well use 72% NTSC as well, but I haven’t been able to confirm.
– 17.3″ versions of these models exist too.

**Acer Aspire VX 15**

– Includes SSD only, however there is a slot for a HDD. You will need to request a free mounting bracket to use it.

Another option a bit different from the rest:

As I mentioned, I don’t recommend the Inspiron 7567 outside of specific cases.

What do you consider to be too heavy ? Based on the specs you want, this Eluktronics N850HK1 Premium Performance Laptop would be an ideal pick, but I am not too sure if it will be too heavy for you. It has a new and powerful Intel Core i7-7700HQ Quad Core processor, 8 GB RAM, SOLID 4GB GDDR5 NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti dedicated graphics card, beautiful 15.6” Full HD IPS Display (ideal for video editing) and a large 1TB SSHD Hard Drive. It also has a very good cooling system, excellent build quality, backlit keyboard and a nice 6 cell battery.

Dell 7567 hdmi port maximum resolution?

Posted on: April 4, 2017 by edit1754

It is HDMI 2.0, so you should be able to do [email protected] on any TV/Monitor supporting HDMI 2.0 and [email protected]

However unless you’re buying the 4K model, or planning to replace the display yourself, I would strongly suggest to reconsider this model, as it uses a very low quality display:

– https://www.reddit.com/r/SuggestALaptop/comments/5ozrqq/warning_the_new_inspiron_15_display_is_indeed/
– https://imgur.com/Sajajqc.jpg

The poor contrast and viewing angles produce a ‘washed-out’ look. Displays like this aren’t normal at this price, this was Dell choosing to use a worse display than both the predecessor and the competition. As such, these are the models I normally recommend:

Sorry about the wait, just jumped on and saw your post while scrolling down. If weight isnt an issue, you’ll be really happy with the Eluktronics N850HK1 . Im not sure if anyone recommended these laptops on your previous post, but if you wanted something solid, quality, and performance get it. Read the reviews, really one of the few laptops that people are really satisfied with after trying out major big brand laptops.

Any questions/concerns feel free to comment back 🙂

UK, gaming laptop, sub ÂŁ900

Posted on: March 30, 2017 by edit1754

It’s not a ripoff per se, but it uses a very low quality screen. I wouldn’t recommend it unless you’re going to replace the screen.

– https://www.reddit.com/r/SuggestALaptop/comments/5ozrqq/warning_the_new_inspiron_15_display_is_indeed/
– https://i.imgur.com/Sajajqc.jpg

I would perhaps get a Clevo N850HJ/N850HK1:

– https://www.pcspecialist.co.uk/notebooks/optimusVIII-15/
– http://mysn.co.uk/xmg-a507-gaming-laptop
– On the PCSPecialist, which seems to come out cheaper, I would config with:
– i5-7300HQ probably. Unless you think your music production will be to a level that requires the 20%-faster 7700HQ. For most gaming the 7300HQ is plenty when paired with a 1050 Ti.
– 8GB RAM
– The GTX 1050 Ti.

You can see reviews here (look at the ones for the 15.6″ model — same product as above, different branding/company selling it)

There’s also this Acer VX5-591G:

– (GTX 1050, IPS display, ÂŁ899)

Is the Lenovo y500 right for me?

Posted on: March 29, 2017 by edit1754

It’s not bad. It has a NVIDIA 960M and decent screen quality.

If you think you’ll get into more games than those two, you may want something with a GTX 1050 or Ti:

Sager NP6852 (select an OS)
Sager NP5855 (select an OS **& pick the IPS display option**. The non-IPS panel option in this laptop is very poor quality and I wouldn’t be recommending it if it didn’t offer the IPS)
Eluktronics N850HK1 (same as above, but known to use a 72% NTSC gamut IPS display — Sager’s color gamut is unknown but it is IPS. Offered 4K/UHD is not true 4K/UHD; I would get Inspiron 7567 4K IPS model if you want a high resolution display, but I would avoid the FHD models of the Inspiron 7567 due to poor display quality.)
Acer VX 15 w/ 1050 / Another one (45% NTSC gamut IPS display)
Acer VX 15 w/ 1050 Ti / Another one (45% NTSC gamut IPS display)
HP Pavilion Power 15t (price fluctuates, best deal when it’s $749 or lower for the GTX 1050. Offered 4K/UHD is not true 4K/UHD; I would get Inspiron 7567 4K IPS model if you want a high resolution display, but I would avoid the FHD models of the Inspiron 7567 due to poor display quality.)
HP Omen 15 (price fluctuates, best deal when it’s $849 or lower for the GTX 1050. 45% NTSC gamut IPS. Offered 4K/UHD is not true 4K/UHD; I would get Inspiron 7567 4K IPS model if you want a high resolution display, but I would avoid the FHD models of the Inspiron 7567 due to poor display quality.)
Lenovo Y520

If the 960M suits your needs, you may like this ASUS ZX53VW better than the Lenovo Y700. The GPU is the same, the CPU is good enough that you likely won’t notice a difference in games when paired with a GTX 960M, it has a fast & large SSD (512GB) — this will affect perceived computer speed more than a CPU, and the screen has better colors (72% NTSC instead of 45%).

EDIT: I *do* often recommend the Ideapad Y700 Touch 4K model to those looking for 4K, since it’s also a true 4K display. $929 if you load the EPP discount then go here. 72% NTSC color gamut, lots of things will be crisper (like Macbook Retina), you can turn scaling settings down in order to fit more onscreen than 1080p, and you’ll be able to run Minecraft in native res, but you won’t be able to run DayZ in native res, and battery life will probably be lower than on your friend’s Y700. It’s nice if that’s what you want, but you may want other things more.

Lenovo Legion Y520 vs ACER Aspire VX 15

Posted on: March 28, 2017 by edit1754

I think the Y520 was a bit more delayed to come out, so it hasn’t been linked all about the forums yet, but there aren’t any huge known issues with it preventing its recommendation. The screen is the kind with decent contrast and viewing angles (though if you want better color gamut, get an Eluktronics Clevo N850HK1).

The second one is the Prostar N855HJ which uses a low quality display. For not much more you can get this: www.xoticpc.com/sager-np6852-clevo-n850hk1.html (select an OS, it’ll be $920 with Windows)

Then you get a significantly better display as well as the more powerful GTX 1050 Ti GPU. Both are Clevo models, just from different sellers.

If you prefer to buy from Amazon:

– https://www.amazon.com/Eluktronics-N850HK1-Premium-Performance-Laptop/dp/B06X6BB9F7/ (Costs more but guaranteed to use a 72% NTSC color gamut IPS panel with better colors than a 45% NTSC gamut IPS — the other sellers seem to be less keen on disclosing their LCD panel stock. Either way you’ll still get a much better display than the N855HJ)
– https://www.amazon.com/Prostar-N850HK1-1920×1080-i7-7700HQ-Bluetooth/dp/B01MSCZRRG/

Looking for a gaming laptop around $1000

Posted on: March 27, 2017 by edit1754

The Alienware 15 is OK when you get a coupon code. At its ‘official’ price, it’s not the best value. There also seem to be QC and cooling issues with the latest lineup, according to various posts on the /r/Alienware sub.

The Dell Inspiron 7000 Gaming (7567) is an expensive laptop with a poor quality display. This is the kind of laptop I only recommend buying if you’re buying it specifically to replace the screen yourself with a better one.

The ASUS GL552VW, Lenovo Ideapad Y700, and HP Omen Pro have good displays (GL552VW is slightly better with higher color gamut) but don’t have the best GPU for the price.

These are my usual recommendations:

Sager NP6852 (select an OS, avoid the Sager NP5855/N855HJ due to also poor display quality)
Eluktronics N850HK1 (same as above, but known to use a 72% NTSC gamut IPS display — Sager’s color gamut is unknown but it is IPS; offered 4K is PenTile not-true-4K)
Acer VX 15 w/ 1050 / Another one
Acer VX 15 w/ 1050 Ti / Another one
HP Pavilion Power 15t (price fluctuates, best deal when it’s $749 or lower for the GTX 1050, offered 4K config option is PenTile not-true-4K so I would get the Inspiron 7567 4K IPS model if you want 4K)
HP Omen 15 (price fluctuates, best deal when it’s $849 or lower for the GTX 1050, offered 4K config option is PenTile not-true-4K so I would get the Inspiron 4K IPS model if you want 4K)
Lenovo Y520

For a faster GPU in the higher price bracket, these:

– http://www.xoticpc.com/sager-np8155-clevo-p650hp3.html
– https://www.amazon.com/Eluktronics-P650RP6-Premium-Gaming-Laptop/dp/B01LYOTO9B/ (if you don’t mind removing the 128GB SSD which is weirdly in the 7mm bay, putting a HDD in, and maybe getting an M.2 SSD)
– Can also config here. May or may not come out cheaper. Also the 4K here is PenTile not-true-4K. This one (if you get the Sharp display, not Samsung display) is true 4K.

The Dell Inspiron 7000 Gaming (7567) uses a very low quality display. This is the kind of laptop I only recommend buying if you’re buying it specifically to replace the screen yourself with a better one.

These models have similar specs with good quality displays:

Eluktronics N850HK1 (GTX 1050 Ti, 72% NTSC gamut IPS panel)
Sager NP6852 (Same model as above, but Sager says they won’t confirm the gamut of the IPS panel unless you ask in sales chat before ordering)
– Acer Aspire VX 15 mentioned in another comment
HP Omen 15 (don’t pick the UHD screen option, it’s PenTile not-true-3840×2160. Get the Inspiron 4K IPS model if you want UHD, since it’s the real deal, and also much better than the FHD TN version)

Also: Note that the offered 4K model of the Eluktronics is PenTile not-true-4K. ~~It’s the same price as the 1080p model (since they’re discontinuing it) so~~ you can trade a bit of battery life and native res game performance for higher screen sharpness (between FHD and true 4K). But if you happened to want it *for* the 4K, I would get this instead, which uses a true 4K display.

aside from this which I agree is a great option, you also have Eluktronics N850HK1 and the Acer-Aspire VX5 both come with i7 quad core CPU which is one of the best in the market and great for gaming, 8 GB of ram for smooth multitasking, Full HD screen which is a must have for this price range, high build quality, very good heat management, GPU that should be able to handle the games you mentioned on high to ultra settings with very good FPs, and it is within your budget. You wouldn’t go wrong with any of the 3 and those are your best options.

The Prostar N855HJ uses a low quality display (poor contrast and viewing angles, similar to the Inspiron 7567). I generally don’t recommend the model unless you’re buying it specifically to replace the display (like this). IMO $800 is too much for a laptop with that kind of display.

For this GPU alongside a better display: This HP (with coupon code **NB20BMSM**) is $679 ($719 w/ 4GB GPU + i5, don’t worry about the i7 because I don’t think it’ll make a huge difference paired with a 1050 for these games).

TN *can* be good, but in laptops it seems the only *good* TN screens are the 120Hz ones, and a few of the 17.3″ 1080p ones. Most of them have poor contrast and viewing angles. Inspiron 7567 display vs Omen 15 display: https://i.imgur.com/Sajajqc.jpg IMO this is a noticeable difference, and I generally suggest to get a good GPU and a good display at the same time.

The Inspiron 7567 and K501UW use low quality displays, and I usually don’t recommend them unless you’re buying them to do this.

The Lenovo Y50 4K/UHD uses a PenTile not-true-4K display as per the sidebar PSA unfortunately. It’s also limited to 48Hz and has a mustard tinge in the yellow spectrum. If you want 4K I would try for a Lenovo Y700 4K or refurb Dell XPS 15 4K, both of which are $1000-$1100, or get the 4K Inspiron 7567 (not 7559 4K, not 1080p 7567) for $1150 through the current EXCLUSIVE10 coupon.

If you’re planning to upgrade the display I could suggest the Inspiron, otherwise something like this/this would be good.

At that higher budget a better GPU might be a more worthwhile buy though. I would probably suggest a Clevo P650 over the ASUS GL502, though as of right now I don’t see a Clevo P650 for that low a price with G-Sync and the 6GB 1050.

Gaming laptops under $1000?

Is this worth getting?

Posted on: March 3, 2017 by edit1754

If your budget is at least $1100, meaning you can get one with the 1920×1080 IPS display, it’s not a bad choice.

I would avoid buying this laptop with the stock/default 1366×768 display, due to the low/limiting resolution itself, as well as the poor contrast and viewing angles that tend to come with most ‘cheap’ TN laptop screens.

Note: Picking the 1920×1080 IPS display upgrade on the first model makes it the same price as the second model, which includes it. You may as well just go with the second model, since it has the 1050 Ti instead of the 1050.

However you can match that GPU performance with this: https://www.amazon.com/Eluktronics-N850HK1-Premium-Performance-Laptop/dp/B06X6BB9F7/ ($899 1080p + 1050Ti model; the 4K model uses a PenTile not-true-4K display as per the sidebar PSA, and isn’t the laptop I would recommend if you wanted 4K)

EDIT: BTW, the Inspiron 7567 from Dell, if you happened to stumble upon that in your searches, isn’t something I would recommend. The resolution is fine (1920×1080) but the screen has the very poor contrast and viewing angles I was talking about above. The 4K model is fine (and true 4K!) but $1300 and comes with its pros/cons (including not being able to run newer games well in native res).

[SQ] i5-7300HQ or i7-7700HQ for the GTX 1050Ti for gaming?

Posted on: March 1, 2017 by JackGallian

I’ll honestly point you here: http://cpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Intel-Core-i7-7700HQ-vs-Intel-Core-i5-7300HQ/m211019vsm223877

The 7700HQ is about 9% faster than the 7300HQ, and will probably age marginally better. With a 1050ti, your bottleneck will be the GPU in almost every conceivable case. With programming, you probably won’t see much of an improvement with the i7 over the i5 unless you’re compiling something very complex.

If the 9% performance increase is worth $75 **to you**, go for the i7. Personally, I’d stick with the i5

That said, if you’re working with a budget and still want to keep the i7, Eluktronics (not sure if you can buy from them in your country) offers a really solid laptop for $900 in the US that you should check out.

^(Also be aware: Both the Pavilion and Eluktronics offer ‘4K’ models/configs, however they use PenTile not-true-4K displays as per the sidebar PSA. I don’t specifically recommend 4K unless you know the pros/cons, however if you did want 4K I would suggest to try and get a deal on the Inspiron 7567 4K. Despite the 7567’s low quality FHD display, its 4K display is a fantastic true-4K Sharp IGZO panel. Also be aware that, while the Eluktronics is currently in stock, I’ve seen it redirect to the $999 not-true-4K model when it goes out of stock.)

Poor girl seeking gaming laptop

Posted on: February 23, 2017 by edit1754

The Inspiron 7567 ~~and ZX53VW~~ models linked here both use very low quality displays, and as such I wouldn’t really recommend them. They render a grayish gradient in what should be solid black (edit: left is the Inspiron with its not-good display, right is a good display), and the resulting poor contrast produces the ‘washed out’ look. For gaming a low quality display can be considered to defeat part of the purpose of buying a ‘gaming’ laptop: to make games look good. And in general I think you’ll find the difference between a good display and a not-so-good one to be one of the most noticeable component differences.

If you can spring $900, the Eluktronics N850HK1 is a very good value with a GTX 1050 Ti and a quite nice display. **EDIT: Model I linked is the $899 1080p+1TB model which is currently sold out. Currently redirects to the $999 4K model, which uses a PenTile not-true-4K display. I would recommend waiting until the $899 1080p+1TB model comes back in stock.**

However a GTX 960M is still quite good for the games you listed.

The Dell Inspiron 7559 has a GTX 960M and a decent quality display (a good bit better than the Inspiron 7567’s). ~~I recommend it over the ZX53VW.~~

For a cheaper option this one has a good display, and a 950M DDR3 that will be plenty for WoW, and should get Overwatch playable on medium-ish settings.

If you want 4K, be aware that the Inspiron 7559 uses a PenTile not-true-4K display, as per the sidebar PSA. If you want 4K, the cheapest ways to get a true 4K display alongside a GPU that level would be the Ideapad Y700 4K or perhaps a Dell XPS 15 4K refurb.

Ideapad Y700 4K:

Also note that the XPS 4K screen has even better colors than the one in the Y700, but both are true 4K.

EDIT: If you don’t want 4K but want a better-than-average 1080p display, this one is solid: https://www.amazon.com/Eluktronics-N850HK1-Premium-Performance-Laptop/dp/B06X6BB9F7/ **EDIT: Model I linked is the $899 1080p+1TB model which is currently sold out.

There’s also a $999 1080p+SSD model.**

Is this a good deal

Posted on: February 22, 2017 by edit1754

This looks to be the Inspiron 7559. While the Inspiron 7559 had the far-better 1080p screen compared to the new model (7566 & 7567), the 4K model used a PenTile not-true-4K display.

Which do you care about more, 4K resolution for the sharpness and perhaps the ability to increase screen realestate? Or best game performance for the price?

If you want 4K, the Lenovo Ideapad Y700 uses a true one.

If you want the best game performance for the price, alongside a great 1080p display, the Eluktronics N850HK1 would be a good pick. (It offers a 4K model but it’s another PenTile not-true-4K display).

EDIT: Better deal on the Ideapad if you get it straight from Lenovo through the EPP discount:

The Acer VX 15 has good performance and a subjectively-good-looking display, however if you want to do editing on the internal display this Eluktronics has similar specs alongside a higher gamut (72% NTSC instead of 45%) display. $100 cheaper and for that difference you could just add a M.2 SSD.

Get the 1080p model. The 4K model of the Eluktronics uses a PenTile not-true-4K display, and I would suggest a different laptop if you happened to want that.

I would say the Eluktronics N850HK1 is one of the best values right now.

It has a great GPU (GTX 1050 Ti) and a great display (1080p IPS with good colors) for the price.

(1080p version not the 4K version, since the 4K version uses a PenTile not-true-4K display)

There’s also this: https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834154346 (currently $869)

The GPU and display should be similarly good.

The Eluktronics N850HK1 has a similarly good display to the Toshiba S55t, too. 72% NTSC 1920×1080 IPS.

Good list! I would prefer the Eluktronics N850HK1 to the Prostar N855HJ or MSI GL62M for screen quality reasons, though.

EDIT:

– The GP62MVR-248 also uses a low quality display. I’d recommend the Prostar P650HP3 for $1099, instead.
– The FX502VM similarly. I’d suggest to go the extra $100 for the P650HP3 unless you plan on replacing that display.
– The ASUS FZ50VW, ~~ZX53VW~~, and K501UW: I’d recommend the Inspiron 7559 (or better yet Eluktronics N850HK1 — **EDIT: Model I linked is the $899 1080p+1TB model which is currently sold out. Currently redirects to the $999 4K model, which uses a PenTile not-true-4K display. I would recommend waiting until the $899 1080p+1TB model comes back in stock. There’s also a $999 1080p+SSD model.** Also EDIT: This ASUS has a good display and a 512GB SSD).

The standard minimum for almost every component has improved steadily over time, including display resolution, however display *quality* is still a sticking point with some laptops. I think you’ll find the difference between a good quality display, and a not-so-good one, to be one of the most noticeable things.

The i7559 is a solid choice. But if you can go $900, I’d go this.

The i7559’s display looks subjectively decent, but this model’s display has a better color gamut.

It looks blurrier, but I have no issue with how Overwatch looks. I do notice, but I like the utility (ability to turn scaling down) and sharpness outside of gaming too much to give it up. I’d decide if that’s worth it to you.

Granted Overwatch is a bit better, since you can render all the text/UI in 4K and set the render scale to 50%, but the actual 3D itself is rendering in 1920×1080.

Inspiron 7567 4K, right? Just to add:

– The Inspiron 7567 has a great 4K display but I wouldn’t get the FHD models, for the reasons you may have heard (poor quality)
– If you decide to settle for regular FHD, I would get something like the Eluktronics N850HK1 which uses a very good FHD IPS display — but I wouldn’t suggest the 4K model of this laptop if you wanted 4K, since it uses a PenTile not-true-4K display as per the sidebar.

**EDIT: Model I linked is the $899 1080p+1TB model which is currently sold out. Currently redirects to the $999 4K model, which uses a PenTile not-true-4K display. I would recommend waiting until the $899 1080p+1TB model comes back in stock. There’s also a $999 1080p+SSD model.**

Laptop suggestions under $1000 - USA

The Eluktronics N850HK1 has a very good (higher 72% NTSC color gamut instead of 45%) 1920×1080 IPS display, which should be good for your Photoshop / After Effects use. Also an RGB backlit keyboard with a numpad.

For another option, this uses the same exact great display as the Eluktronics.

The Omen can be a good value, and its display looks subjectively good compared to a number of other laptop displays, however its display is only 45% NTSC. The FHD option that is. The offered UHD option is PenTile not-true-UHD as per the sidebar PSA (Eluktronics 4K is also not-true-4K), so I would get a completely different laptop if you wanted that.

You can also up-size the monitor to 17.3″ and also increase storage space and RAM size. For the price, this is a great computer. It’s CPU and RAM is fine for an average amount of CAD. The graphics card won’t be able to push ultra well on most games, but you should be able to get up to almost 60-50FPS on medium-high on most current games, don’t know how long that will last though.

This computer will be fine for gaming, but I’m more interested in the CAD portion of what you need. If you’re going to be doing a lot and more intensive CAD you probably will need a better amount of RAM and a different CPU.

Honestly I think your best option is probably the Elekutronics N850 for $900. Eluktronic’s gaming laptops are pretty well built and have pretty solid cooling. It also has top specs with a new Kabylake i7-7700HQ processor, 8gb of ram (upgradable) and a 1TB HDD + 8gb SSD. It also has a GTX 1050 Ti dGPU which should work well for pretty high end gaming. It’s display is a full 1080p IPS display, it comes with 1GB Ethernet, and many ports.

You can also look into the 17.3” version for $950 if you would like a bit larger of a laptop.

To add to my other post, this one is one of the absolute best values right now: https://www.amazon.com/Eluktronics-N850HK1-Premium-Performance-Laptop/dp/B06X6BB9F7/ and is pretty much a direct alternative to the Prostar for not much higher of a price.

Same as the Sager NP6852, but through a different reseller, and currently cheaper.

The Inspiron 7559 is a solid choice. Good GPU and good display, what I recommend to focus on since I think you’ll see the most difference from them.

If you can go $900, I would go for the Eluktronics N850HK1: https://www.amazon.com/Eluktronics-N850HK1-Premium-Performance-Laptop/dp/B06X6BB9F7/

It’s easily the best value right now with its GTX 1050 Ti and 1920×1080 IPS display (actually a 72% NTSC color gamut one rather than the more common 45%. Better than the Inspiron 7559!)

(On the note about display quality, I would suggest to avoid the Inspiron 7567, most MSI GL62M models, and the other models listed under that section of the sidebar, due to very poor display quality.)

I don’t know the color accuracy of the display used in the MSI GE62VR, for photo editing, but I know the $899 Eluktronics N850HK1 uses a near-full-sRGB display (the LG LP156WF6-SPB1, same as the Acer Nitro). Also has a GTX 1050 Ti.

Help me to compare these laptops

Posted on: February 16, 2017 by edit1754

Between the two, I would go for the Dell Inspiron 7559 since the K501UW uses a very poor quality display.

But can you go $899? The Eluktronics N850HK1 is easily the best value for that price right now: https://www.amazon.com/Eluktronics-N850HK1-Premium-Performance-Laptop/dp/B06X6BB9F7/

Has a considerably faster GTX 1050 Ti, and an even better display than the Inspiron (LG LP156WF6-SPB1, if you want to get technical, which is one of the absolute best).

GPU and Display are probably the things you’ll notice the most difference in. I’d prioritize those. The N850HK1 hits those two points very well.

Lenovo or asus? Any other contender?

Posted on: February 16, 2017 by edit1754

The K501UW uses a very low quality display, and as such I generally don’t recommend it. The Lenovo’s display is much better. It doesn’t have the large SSD, but that’s upgradable (actually, for that matter, so is the display in the K501UW, technically).

Either way, can you go $899? The Eluktronics N850HK1 is easily the best value for that price right now: https://www.amazon.com/Eluktronics-N850HK1-Premium-Performance-Laptop/dp/B06X6BB9F7/

Has a considerably faster GTX 1050 Ti, and an even better display than the Lenovo Y700 (LG LP156WF6-SPB1, if you want to get technical, which is one of the absolute best).

^(there’s also an offered 4K model of the Eluktronics, but I would hold off on that one unless/until it’s confirmed to be true-4K, and not pentile-not-true-4K as per the sidebar PSA. You also might not want 4K anyway, it has its pros/cons.)

The Dell’s fine for the price. Both this Dell and the Dell in the first comment are the 7559, which has a decent display. I would avoid the newer 7566 and 7567 models available elsewhere, since they don’t. That MSI GL62 I believe also uses a very low quality display.

The best value right now I believe is the Eluktronics N850HK1. Has the even faster GTX 1050 Ti and a display even better than the Inspiron 7559’s display (one with a good color gamut in addition to the good contrast and viewing angles).

The Eluktronics N850HK1 is one of the absolute best values right now.

GTX 1050 Ti and a very good 1920×1080 IPS display (one of the higher color gamut ones).

Perhaps more GPU than you need, but most models with similar displays but lesser GPUs aren’t any cheaper.

For cheaper there’s this Ideapad 700 for $598. Still decent quality display, and should have adequate performance for your games and Adobe use.

That looks like a pretty solid value! 970M benchmarks.

Another option is the Eluktronics N850HK1 with a GTX 1050 Ti.

Both laptops also have good quality displays. Some don’t and I would suggest to avoid those.

That MSI will do it. This Eluktronics N850HK1 is another option.

Also if they come up in your searches, I would suggest to avoid the Dell Inspiron 7567, Sager NP5855, MSI GL62M (model w/ “Vivid Color 94%” display, and others, due to display quality issues. Both the MSI GE62 and Eluktronics N850HK1 have decent displays, but a number of laptops do not, and you’ll likely to find that to be one of the absolute most noticeable types of differences.

Looks like BF3 is the hardest. Hard to tell for sure what its requirements are, for 1920×1080, but I was able to deduce some numbers from this. You should be able to hit near 60fps ultra / 60fps+ high, and these will allow you to run new games that come out too.

GL502VT GTX 970M 12GB RAM 1TV HD $730

Posted on: February 14, 2017 by edit1754

The Best Buy GL502VT uses quite a low quality display, and as such I don’t usually recommend it. A poor quality display can be one of the most noticeable flaws.

But for $730 I’d say you might as well just go for it it and decide that you’ll replace the display if you don’t like it (same replacement options there should work for this one).

The closest value to the GL502VT + a $60-$80 replacement display would probably be this for $899 with a GTX 1050 Ti and a good display.

Posted on: February 13, 2017 by edit1754

The Lenovo’s a good choice for its price, however I would avoid the Dell due to very poor display quality. A low quality display can be one of the most noticeable flaws in a laptop, and for gaming in particular, I think you’ll get your best experience by getting both a good GPU and a good display, at the same time.

This, for example, offers the GTX 1050 alongside a significantly better quality display, for $849. This offers the GTX 1050 Ti alongside a significantly better quality display, for $899.

Posted on: February 13, 2017 by edit1754

To my understanding, the Prostar N855HJ uses a low quality display. I don’t usually recommend the model, since I think a poor display can be one of the most noticeable flaws in a laptop. This one has a better GPU and a better display at the same time.
