#1 for gaming, but I mean that laptop is going to be real heavy and real expensive, you would be better off to get a cube PC for a quarter of the price.

Why are you not getting a desktop for gaming, #1 will literally burn you if you put it on your lap, and it will also probolly overheat and melt eventually.

get a PC, its going to be hard to get a futureproof computer let alone a laptop. Computers become outdated in months... Why do you wan't a laptop anyway?

EDIT: yeah and if you want to do gaming go with AMD instead of Intel

What's the star for by illegal?

Regardless, what Chris said is about the jest of it.

* The US are not finding any of Intel's or Dell's action's currently illegal, but other large non ***** country's like Japan have banned Intel from being used in any PC's due to it's deals between company's like Dell.
