Question Buying a Gaming Laptop ~2000 USD

Hi All,

First of all thanks for any and all answers!

I am looking to buy a laptop for gaming / watching video's, because I know I will be moving a lot in the coming years and won't be able to take a desktop with me. I have been scouring the market and set my heart on the x17E from Digital Storm. When I called up to have a chat with them though they tell me that because I live in Switzerland I have to pay an additional 80-100 % on top of the price because of shipping and customs fee's making it not a favorable purchase.

So essentially what I am looking for is a European version of Digital Storm, someone who has a great reputation and the same service with similar value for money.

I have looked at Alienware however for what you get they seem expensive.

Please could anyone provide suggestions for where I could buy my next laptop!

I would look into an Asus G74. It's a freaking powerhouse. I have one and it does not disappoint. I'm not familiar with Swiss sites, though. Look around on your computer/electronic retailer sites and see if you can find one

custom gaming laptops - Welcome to Sager Notebooks

you can go from there... they make a kick-@22 gamer if you don't wanna get the Alienware.

I had the NP5165, but to be honest I like my current M17X R2 better.
