    Question Laptop recommendations, need help!

    I'm considering getting this laptop:
    https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B015...A3DWYIK6Y9EEQB

    From what I can tell this is a pretty good laptop; i5, gtx940, it seems worth the price.

    a few questions:

    From what I've heard, MSI is notorious for shitty battery life. is there truth to that?

    And second: what kinds of games could I be looking at running here? at most id like to play arma 3 on medium graphics. would the CPU be able to support that? I know arma games are really cpu heavy.

    Thanks for your help.

    well had a friend with a msi gs70, after 2 years.. the gtx 765m inside started overheating to 90C+ but it was kinda dusty.

    Just came out not long ago. about 5.7lbs? one of the thinnest gaming laptops (no optical drive) $800 USD best bang for buck in my opinion
    https://www.amazon.com/Dell-Inspiron-...=gaming+laptop

    I5 6300HQ
    8GB DDR3 RAM
    256GB SSD
    GTX 960m 4gb

    If you wanted to game decently on laptop, I suggest getting a laptop with an entry GTX card like GTX850M/950M (They're the same card lmao).

    Don't buy MSI. Buy Lenovo, ASUS or Dell when it comes to laptops. I recommend this one: https://www.ebay.ca/itm/ThinkPad-T420...sAAOSwMmBVomyd

    Even though it says Manufacturer refurbished, it comes brand new trust me.

    Go for this one: https://www.ncix.com/detail/asus-k550...03058-1120.htm

    I've been using it personally, it's a really great laptop for its value.

    Fine
    Well if you are into gaming and you travel a lot in the same time... you should consider waiting for the new Razer Blade, I suggest you check it out..its a normal ultrabook but when you plug it in with the Razer Core (or whatever its called) [basically the core is a external desktop graphics card ] it become like a gaming laptop wiht fking Desktop Graphics not to mention you can change the GFX card with you own card if you wanted to.. So you got yourself a amazing gaming PC at home and and amazing looking powerful ultrabook when you are outside... not to mention the laptop is sleek its beatiful

    I'm pretty sure he's on a budget. Otherwise, he would've bought the Blade already.

    I wouldn't buy an expensive laptop in the first place. Laptops priced around $300-$500 will do. But, I wouldn't game on a laptop either. Got a PS4 for that.
