I'm looking to buy a Gaming Laptop. Have a few questions though : / First off I have about 2k-2500 price range(Saving any little bit of cash would be nice but Performance and Longevity is #1). With that price range i feel like it shouldn't be to much to ask for it to last atleast 3 yrs if not more towards 5yr. By that I want it to hold up being hauled about when traveling [My job requires me to travel every 2/3 weeks all across the US]. Second concern is getting the best hardware performance wise... With the GTX 1080 right around the corner idk how much part that will play in the laptop game in the near future. The two I've looked the most into is the Alienware 17 and MSI GT72S G-220.

Upgrades I made to the AW17 = 4k screen, 32GB, 256SSD/1TB, Wireless Intel 8260 (2.4/5GHZ),

Alienware- http://www.dell.com/us/p/alienware-17-r3/pd?oc=dkcwg02sso&model_id=alienware-17-r3#overrides=dkcwg02sso:7671~SUN32J4000B2S;8~2561TB;3~32G2D;19~8260WW;760~UHD

For that price any drt should be able to play games at 1080p or more. The main problem is the weight and battery life. The alienware 17 r3 is the best gaming laptop I know that has a good battery life but its heavy. You could look at the auros v17 I think its called, the 17 inch one. If you get the one with the gtx 980m you should be able to play all the game at the price of noise.
