Hey Tom's Hardware,

Is there a gaming laptop hierarchy chart somewhere out there for laptop: price, gaming performance, bang for buck e.t.c...? Please leave a link/picture of one for laptops in 2014 as a lot of new laptops/features have been released. Any other laptop related feature hierarchy chart or what is good/not would be awesome! :D

Thanks mate, really helpful chart. Do you know of another chart for "bang for your buck" gaming laptops? Example: A) $1800 laptop with 60fps avg in BF4 @Ultra B) $1700 laptop with 45fps avg in BF4 @ Ultra. Though A is more expensive, it is worth the extra $100 making it a great "bang for your buck" laptop. :)

Haha, you probably have an i7 chip in your brain for it to do that. XD
I have some questions about the bang for the buck and stuff...please answer with links to price (if you can).
- Cheapest laptop with 880M SLI
- Cheapest laptop with 880M
- Cheapest laptop with M290X Crossfire
- Cheapest laptop with R9 M290X
- Is SLI in laptops good? What about crossfire? Are they worth it?
- Though the Y510p/Y50 have worse GPUs, are they great for the price?
- Some games work better on 780M and some better on 880M, what's the deal with that?

PLEASE answer these questions, I am very confused and suck at researching things like these. I would greatly appreciate it if you helped me. :)

Hmm, thanks for the info and laptop models.
- I would say that the y510p is the best laptop for under $1000 including build quality, performance, and other features. Do you agree? If not, what other laptop under/very close to $1000 is better?
- Best (overall features) gaming laptop for $1000 - $1200?
- Best (overall features) gaming laptop for $1200 - $1400?
- Best (overall features) gaming laptop for under $1800?

This will prooooooobably be my last question, but i might think of one in the future haha :p
Y510p VS ASUS G750JS, yes, obviously the ASUS is the better one here, BUT for a price difference of $780...like....$780 after saving on both laptops from amazon, and a pretty small fps difference @ Ultra in most games, is worth it?
755 SLI in Y510p
870M

Once again, thank you so so much for all your help and replying fast. It helped me clear up all these laptops and $$$. :D

Here are someore questions haha. :)
- Cheapest laptop with 780M
- Cheapest laptop with GPU similar to 780M (cheaper than the one you will list above)
- What fps do you get on what games with your and your father's laptop?
- Did you or your father over clock the laptops?
- Battery life in both without gaming and while gaming?
- Difference in both?
-Anything else about these laptops, and the first and second ones you will list above would be nice. :)

- Like if you listed cheapest laptop with 780M and Cheapest with GPU close to 780M those were the two I was talking about.
- If there is no point getting 780M since they are just as expensive as 880M why did you buy your laptop with the 780M?
- Can you please give some framrates you get in some games? Or are they very very close to the ones on the notebookcheck website?
- Isn't it bad to leave battery plugged in? I heard they become hotter than if they were not plugged in which reduces its lifetime.

Hmmm. Do you agree with this list?
- Best AND Cheapest laptop under $1000 with its kind of performance is the Lenovo Y510p
- Good quality AND Cheapest laptop under $1400 with 870M is the MSI GT60
- Best laptop under $1800 is the ASUS G750JS with the 870M
- Best quality AND Cheapest laptop under $1850 with the 880M (fastest single laptop GPU) is the MSI GT70
Good quality AND Cheapest laptop under $2400 with 880M SLI (fastest laptop GPU setup) is the Sager NP9377


Also, why the hell is "The New Razer Blade Pro" with a single 860M starting at $2580? Is it because of the touch pad, or does it give you free candy or some shit haha. :)

I was just looking around and found cheaper laptops with 880M and so many variations.
- 5400 vs 7200 RPM HDD?
- How many GB SSD is needed for Windows/ how many just so computer is fast?
- 870M vs 780M vs 880M RAW performance, 870M vs 780M vs 880M which on is best bang for your buck?
- How heavy is too heavy in laptop?
- How cool is your and your father's laptop?

For the GT60 Dominator-424, it has 2GB DDR3L SDRAM. First of all, what kind of RAM is that? How is it different than computer RAM? Also, isn't 2GB very little for gaming and just heavy use? I heard 8GB is the sweet spot.
