Hello. I'm sorry to make yet another thread of asking for a gaming laptop. I've looked around a lot of others and can't seem to find the information I want, so making one myself.

I want a gaming laptop. Not a desktop, it just isn't going to happen (I travel a fair bit and I also don't have room for a desk or desktop, so laptop it is.)

I've had a few Dell's over the years, and I don't mind their service at all. In fact because they are the only place I've had, I trust them somewhat and wary of others.

What I currently have:

Dell Studio XPS
Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 CPU Q820 @ 1.73GHz
8 gigs ram
Windows 7 home premium 64-bit
500GB 7200 RPM SATA hard drive
ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5730 - 1GB video card

It's a good computer, and it plays games well. Unfortunately it overheats *A LOT.* I have found that Dells seem to have an overheating issue and know that it is hard to mitigate heat out of a laptop as it is.

That is why I'm asking for the best brands/models that mitigate heat well.

I'd like one with better stats than mine (its 3 years old, and great still but want an upgrade). Cost wise... 3,000USD and under. If there is something really good above it I may consider depending.

Also, I do have a cooling pad, and I have also replaced the thermal paste with a diamond based paste (which did reduce it a little, but not too much.)

I understand that the more you use it the more likely it'll die (heat.) And that dust buildup is a problem. I've encountered this a lot on mine and clean it out as much as possible, but even cleaned out it has an overheating problem, as had my other dells. I would just like to know if anyone has encountered any that are decent.

Any recommendations would be great!! Thank you!

Also, as far as I know. the bigger/better the processor is, more likely there is to cause overheating, even on everyday tasks, not just gaming. Is there a way to have a program that limits what is available for regular web browsing, and then allow full access for gaming alone or when needed? Thanks!

Well if your okay w/ a giagantic heavy laptop you can look at the newest Asus G series laptops. The heat management is supposed to be extremely good. It has haswell so it will run cooler for everyday tasks

Sorry for not responding here for so long. I did take your advice and got an ASUS G750J... I LOVE THIS THING!!!!!!!!!! The two fans is amazing. I can play a brand new highly graphic intensive game at max and still have it on laptop because it runs so cool! It is a bit heavy, but not too much more than previous (more of actual physical size rather than weight), but that is exactly what I expected.

Thank you!!!
