I've been using a older ASUS laptop (G75vx) for the past couple of years now and I'm looking to upgrade into a new beast. I usually stick with ASUS products as my past couple of laptops have been from them, but there's also a couple of other brands that have caught my eye as well. What's everyone else running currently? Any plans for something new?

I ended up buying something like this around this time last year. Mine was a refurbished model so far has been running very well and I have been happy with my purchase. Smile I'm not sure if it still expensive, but you could try building one or you could try looking around. I'm not that knowledgeable about the best gaming PC.

Still using my old Toshiba P750 I've had since 2011...or 10. Forget which year I actually got it. Still works OK, but can't really be used for much gaming, only small stuff or it'll auto shuts down or closes the program by itself. Did better in it's early years though. Do need an upgrade or at least a change to a new laptop. Perhaps in the new year I'll do so. Hope this old thing lives out until then and a bit more. On it's second battery too.

Newegg always has great deals with refurbished models or open box computers, especially around holiday season. I've thought about getting one from time to time but never clicked the buy button.  LOL

I'm thinking about getting into PC gaming. I've heard some great things about Alienware.

Alienware tends to be over priced. If you wish I can help, I just need a budget and an idea what you are looking for and some examples of what games you want to play and/or other wise do with it, (Also if there is a microcenter near your house... Whistle)

Whenever I hear of Alienware, I tend to hear more negatives than positives. Most of the time with the claim being they just don't warrant their price tag or that they can be unreliable.
