  1. What do you think the best laptop for gaming would be under $1200

    Try customizing a dell. They are pretty good, and not to pricy! Just be aware that dell customer support is terrible.

    oh sorry they are a bit spendy, but I doubt You will find a "good" one at under $1200

    The Dell XPS is superior when it comes to laptop gaming. I own a Dell Inspiron XPS Gen 2 and it runs all my games without any problems. You probably won't pick it up for $1200 but it is the only way to go in my opinion. The Acer Ferrari is also a good lappy, but it has a smaller screen, and it gets hot as fire. I had the Acer first and sold it to purchase the XPS Gen2. The new line of XPS is out....check'em out @

    $1200?? I don't know. I've got a Sager and I love it but then you're looking at starting around $2200 for a basic 9750.

    Anyone who can deal with Alienware's "PHASE" crap has a lot more patience than I do. I would go to and configure what you want. As far as the Dell goes, too much "bloatware" for my liking and the XPS will never beat out a Sager 9750.
