Re: Is this a decent gaming laptop?
PP, to get the Dell you want, you call them and personally order it up as you want. Dell has "streamlined" the website so as to get product out the door. Typical dell take what we show you, mentality.
The 17 has the option for a 60 or 120Hz option, 18 doesn't. Which is understand able, with 18 numbers probably being low.
Unfortunately you can't knock Dellianware for not having desktop CPUs in their setups, as they choose not to build those, or 17" SLI systems anymore. It's the same as saying Eurocom sucks as they don't offer an 18" option.
I only have an AW for the screen size, dual gpus were a bonus.
Eurocom and Dellianware choose different paths, but compare systems of like parts and you get like systems.
