I'm getting the gtx 1080 with the 120 hz 2k screen in G sync. however i read really good reviews on it from big names on youtube but their facebook page is riddled with problems and complaints and they're all pretty bad. I'm not getting a desktop so don't bother trying to convince me. My spending limit is 3500$ all suggestions for a good gaming laptop welcome.

As far as gaming goes, I have had no problems with my 17 R4.I play War Thunder, The graphics are intense, The tanks along with the planes and attack boats perform way above those with basic gaming systems. I have performed acrobatic moves that I never thought possible for hours every single day! Our squadron uses discord for communicating battle tactics and it operates flawlessly. My advise is if you want a true gaming system to battle with every day the 17 R4 works very, very well, if you want to play 7 games at one time then get a life and enjoy complaining. ..Smurfnugget:A.K.A.PaPaGunnz
