Hey guys frozenClock here and I was wondering if you can help me with my current predicament. For the past couple of weeks i've been set out on buying a gaming laptop for college but every time I go to a forum about a specific laptop that I want to buy theres always this one disparaging comment about the laptop that deters me from buying it and planning to save up on it.

Before anyone replies with a " build a desktop, much better" yes I understand its much cheaper, more bang for your buck, and much more rewarding. Yes I understand, ive been wanting to build a desktop for a while but right now I need something semi-portable, so laptop.

Anyways getting back to the topic, I narrowed down my option to these laptops:

1. Alienware 17 - http://www.dell.com/ie/p/alienware-17-r3/pd?oc=n00aw17r301&model_id=alienware-17-r3#overrides=n00aw17r301:760~UHD;8~2561TB;3~16G2D;463~475613

2. Alienware 15 - http://www.dell.com/ie/p/alienware-15-r2/pd?oc=n00aw15r205&model_id=alienware-15-r2#overrides=n00aw15r205:8~2561TB;463~475613;1014~890860

3. MSI GE62 Apache Pro - http://www.pcworld.ie/Product/msi-apache-pro-ge62-2qf-156-gaming-laptop/329047/396.0.0

4. Defiance II - http://www.pcspecialist.co.uk/notebooks/defianceII-15/

5. MSI GE72 Dominator Pro - http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B015Q27QVW/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_S_ttl?_encoding=UTF8&colid=3EMEG591AHQL3&coliid=I3MD08LL0RJXGF&psc=1

6. ASUS G751JL ROG - http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B014E4DVHG/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_nS_ttl?_encoding=UTF8&colid=3EMEG591AHQL3&coliid=I3CXGHD13FFZHR&psc=1

7. ASUS G751JY ROG - http://www.amazon.co.uk/G751JT-DH72-4710HQ-2-5-3-5GHz-256GB-Windows/dp/B00OYS98QG/ref=sr_1_4?s=computers&ie=UTF8&qid=1451934447&sr=1-4&keywords=ASUS+ROG+G751JY

The aspect of the price is not really a big deal, anyone can save up if people are patient, as long as its in range of €1800 - €2600.

If people are wondeing why im limited to these retailers, I live in Ireland where gaming laptop retailers are not as much compared to other countries like America or UK. In fact, apart from Amazon and PC World, I don't how trustworthy Hidevolution.co.uk is so if anyone in the community can give me any feedback then that would super duper awesome thanks.

Thats it guys hope you can help me with my dilemma that would be awesome :)
