I am looking for a gaming laptop in the $1000-$1300 price range. I want the best bang for the buck, but I don't know much about laptop hardware as I do desktop hardware. I was looking at a couple models: http://www.amazon.com/Republic-Gamers-G51JX-X3-15-6-Inch-Gaming/dp/B00361G0ZO ^this has a core i5 processor at 2.26GHZ compared to http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834220700&cm_re=g51jx-_-34-220-700-_-Product ^Has an I7 at 1.6GHZ more suggestions are welcome Is there really much of a performance difference? I figure since the i5 is clocked higher it might put out a little better performance...or is the i7 worth $200 more? also I built my own PC that I am trying to sell. It is 4 months old with these parts: Antec 900 mid tower case - 5 fans (4-120mm, 1-200mm) ASUS M4A79XTD 790X motherboard AMD Phenom II x3 processor (I have unlocked it to become a quad core, as well over clocked it to 3.2ghz) Scythe 92mm heat sink Rosewill green 530watt PSU 4gb DDR3 G.Skill RAM @ 1600mhz MSI dvd burner w/ lightsribe 750gb Seagate HDD 320gb WD HDD 80gb WD HDD -- 1.12TB total storage EVGA 8600GT 256mb Linksys wireless card with an 8dbi antenna card reader on the front of the case 20" ACER wide screen monitor wireless logitech keyboard and mouse. cheap speakers windows 7 ultimate 64bit Microsoft Office 2007 Photoshop CS4 Adobe Premiere CS3 What is the most I could get out of it on craigslist/ebay? I was hoping around $800-850 but I don't know how much these things depreciate in price. The major weak point is the 8600gt. Other than that it is solid. My plans are either Xfire 2 5770's or get a gaming laptop for college. I'm kind of leaning towards a laptop just because of the size/weight of my PC and the tiny size of the dorm rooms. Thanks for any help.
