FINAL DECISION: AORUS X7 PRO
16G DDR3 1866
256G mSATA*2 RAID0 + 1T 7200RPM
GTX970M 3G SLI
approximately 2,700 USD
I will be moving to Japan for working later, and a new gaming laptop is necessary for me to relax.
I require that the laptop has GTX970M/980M, 16G RAM(or 8G with enough empty RAM slots), 17 inch monitor.
It must be very stable, and has warranty in Japan.
Budget: No more than 300,000 JPY/ 2,500 USD
Thanks, having a list to compare is very useful.
I recently noticed that there are some "custom gaming PC" brands, whose products are a bit cheaper, can you please name some?
BTW, An Alienware 18 is on sale for 330,000 JPY (70,000 off) with 880M SLI, 16G RAM, 128G SSD+1T HDD. Seems very reasonable for its 880M SLI which is far more powerful than 980M. Would you recommend it? Or do you know when does Alienware usually do sales?
(Actually I don't want to buy now since its shipping to HK is very troublesome, but the sale will end soon)
