With the addition of a newborn to my family, my gaming time has become much more limited. A factor of limitation in this lack of gaming opportunities is getting to my fixed desktop location in my basement. Sure, I could move it upstairs closer to the baby's room, but that wouldn't allow me to buy a new laptop. So I am seeking advice in helping me find a gaming laptop that will allow me to be a bit more portable. Some of my considerations would be to have a larger gaming screen, 17"+, and a graphics card that will keep me in the game for a couple of years with the newer games. I've got a top end price of $1500 or so, but want to get the best bang for my buck (who doesn't right?). I know something like an alienware laptop would work, but I think you pay a bit more for the brand there. Please point me in the right direction on this one. Thanks in advance.
