Default Re: Gaming laptop?

Newegg.com - HP Pavilion dv6-3143us NoteBook Intel Core i3 370M(2.40GHz) 15.6" 4GB Memory 500GB HDD 5400rpm DVD Super Multi ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5650 + Intel HD

This laptop has Intel Core i3-370M(2.40GHz) + ATI HD5650 for $799.99

This laptop seems to be inexpensive and good for gaming. The only major advantage mobile i5 has over i3 is turbo boost, the difference between the two is not that big.

Do NOT get the HP. The DV line is ******. Look on Google, the complaints on DV's.

Yes, I found the Dv6 line especially bad when doing research.

Online complaints are subjective. There is alot of babble around about my laptop and it works perfectly for me *shrugs*

Sure they work great, but after warranty, they seem to break.

Mine broke DURING warranty. Gateway told me to contact Best Buy. Geek Squad said the info wasnt in their system and they where gonna charge me 700+ bucks for something i fixed in 5 minutes (a year later, but its fixed now).
Warranty doesnt mean crap when customer support is crap tbh. Most little problems ive seen people complain about my laptop online is a simple fix for anybody tech savvy.

If it's their product, they fix it. If they say they can't help you, you can sue them. It is written clearly under the warranty terms.

It was their product and the new screen was going to be "under warranty" but they where going to charge me that much to put the screen in. All it was, was a loose ribbon connection from the LCD to the motherboard. One of us probably hit the media buttons to hard and knocked it loose so reseating it did the job.

Everyone knows how shady Best Buy is.

Best Buy is crap. Small local repair shops are better.
