What Kind of Laptop Does a Game Designer Buy?



What kind of laptop would a Game Designer buy? That's the question I've been asking myself over the last couple of months of laptop research.

I finally figured out the answer to that question, and for me it's the Sager 8662.

Who is Sager? Well... you know all those high end laptop companies out there? They all buy their parts from the same company... The company is called Clevo. Sager directly buys their parts from Clevo, and only makes the highest end gaming laptops.

I knew I wanted something that wasn't bigger than 15 inches for screen size, and I wanted something fast enough to game and work on.

I ended up with the Sager 8662, bought through xoticpc.com

Here are the specs:

So, why this laptop you ask?

It's the fastest 15 inch laptop on the market... bar none. Can you say Crysis running smoothly in high quality in native resolution on a lappy? Oh yes...

All I have to say is this machine looks sexy! I couldn't love a human child as much as I love this laptop! (j/k)

That looks sweet. There are features in that build that really make me jealous - the thermal paste, many choices offered in the processors, the 1680x1050 screen option. I have been agonizing over my laptop purchase, and finally just went with a desktop replacement. Not very portable, but it is better then my 1yr old home built PC in every way.
