Re: I need some laptop help!
Well to be frank:
From being dropped HDD could be going bad or have corrupt Windows files. Easy fix.
Heat is due to dust. Needs to be dusted out real good. The little heatsinks get a solid layer of dust that completely blocks air flow and makes laptops get real hot quick. When this happens the CPU and GPU start to throttle causing a massive slow down compared to what you're used to.
Not only that, if it's the same install from when you first got it you'll find a ton extra running in the background due to things being installed over time. A few blasts from a high powered air compressor and a fresh install of Windows will fix this right up.
On to the question, IMO if you have a desktop with the "best money can buy" then you don't need a power house laptop. The ones you have listed off are all about 1500 or so. Pretty steep if you aren't gaming, but your money.
Out of the ones listed, the first one would be my pick.
