    I am thinking

    6 gen I7
    Nvidia 9600GTX
    128 ssd + 1TB hd
    16GB ram

    I dont need a giant screen or anything as when I game I ususally plug in to a 27 inch monitor and my logitech 6 15 and razer naga

    So I was considering a 15 inch, some thing lightr and easier to toss in a backpack

    I was looking at ASUS ROG series but they dont have this model available yet.

    Any ideas? I want to spend under $1500

    Before you say build a desktop, I want a laptop so i can take it with me on my yacht :)

    I actually just bought one of these...
    https://originpc.com/gaming/laptops/
    Still waiting on it in the mail, but the customer service has been spectacular and they don't make it till you order it. Also rated very high. I'm updating from a RoG so depending on when I get it I can tell you how much I like it. I decided to get the EON15X. My RoG is a 17, and I'm not sad about losing the size. I got pretty much everything in mine though. Cost a bit. I'm happy with what I got for the price, but like I said, still waiting on the rig.

    Seems a little pricey, You could get an Alienware or rogue for less with the same components. Why did you choose Origin?

    I didn't want a dell, I wanted something that would last. I did a bunch of research, checked consumer reports and CNET for reviews. Origin was rated very highly so I decided to give it a shot, so far I'm happy with my purchase and I haven't even got it yet. Its nice having my own personal customer service person I can email at any time and get a timely reply from. He even asked if I wanted him to send me pictures of them building my rig to me while they made it. I'm definitely impressed by what they've done so far to accommodate me.

    Those specs sound alright to me.

    I should probably also mention that like a large portion of adult gamers, I do IT for a living. The county I work for has a contract through dell for computers, laptops, and servers so I've seen a lot go wrong with them and I've had to deal with their customer service a fair amount. Besides just plain not having the parts I need sometimes, they've also sent me the wrong parts pretty often. Its definitely not something I want to deal with in my personal life.

    I've stopped using gaming laptops for mmos. The cpus are always too weak for them, i7's included. Seems to run everything else fine. Also, you just spent all that money and only got a 2 gb gpu. Going forward that's going to hurt your performance big time. 2gb gpus are pretty much done.

    ASUS makes solid gaming notebooks.

    Typically the bottleneck is the GPU, you won't be blowing through new titles with Ultra graphics. Rest should be fine!

    thats alright.... i don't want to bring my desktop computer over to a lan party to play a mmo, i play mmo's at home and connect with people online, doesn't serve much benefit to do it for those types of games. but if i am doing FPS or MOBA games, sure a lan party is perfect and i would probably prefer a laptop to bring on over to spent time with friends on those types of games better suited for that imo.
