Gaming Laptop part2

Alien Ware M17x
Alienware M17x
Alienware is company that founded at 1996, Alienware known as a gaming desktop manufacturer. then expand their product to to gaming laptop and Alienware M17x is a laptop to fill the need game on mobility stuff. This product Gaming performance very satisfying and I tend to say it one of the best laptop. With dual Ati Graphics card setting on real Cross fire that make this laptop be able to run most recent game in medium-high setting without any problem. 17” led display provide amazing picture for gaming, it’s looks so realistic and it’s provide by Full HD technology, with best color and brightness but still comfort to use even you use it in hours.

For office work of course it’s easy to handle by power full Intel core I7 Processor and 4096mb main memory. For storage media 500 gb hard drive with 7200 rpm ready to server you, it’s the fastest laptop hard drive recently.  Other thing that excellent for this laprop is anodized aluminum case in red-black-silver color. Total weight this laptop is 5.7kg but for powerful gaming laptop 5.7kg is nothing if we compare it with it’s performance.

Keyboard, touchpad and airduck lighted with some led, (it’s look nice when see it in dark room). And this light are be able to customize with any color you like or even disable it. Big responsive touch keyboard make game control easier, with colored led make it is to typing in less light room. 802.11 wifi and gigabit Ethernet is ready for fast online game connection. 2 device that seem not to use full for me is integrated camera and microphone. (Remember it’s gaming laptop not chating laptop :D)
For overall, performance, weight, feature, design, price, style this laptop is worth to buy. And it’s seem no competitor in this class, because I don’t know is there any other product using dual GPU in crossfire mode like this laptop. Maybe they will coming soon.

Acer AS5745G-7671
I ‘ve already examine about this laptop on my previous post (best value laptop) but, if you want cheap laptop but it’s be able to play game this laptop is perfect choiche. Yes this laptop be able to handle most of game even it in low-medium setting.

There 4 aspect why I put it on gaming laptop : Powerful Processor, Huge Ram at least 4 gb, medium-large storage device, and most important is it has dedicated  Graphic processing unit and at least 1 gb dedicated graphic memory (not shared from main memory) for more details about specification read my previous post.

This laptop is not pure gaming laptop but in some game test like Alien and predator, DIRT2 demo, and Lost planet 2 it show quite good performance in medium setting and still comfort and enjoying to play. But when I test it on high resolution setting it’s lagging and I be able to enjoying the game. that All game work on DirectX 11. But for below $650 this laptops are work to buy with decent price it’s not fair it if I compare this laptop with pure gaming laptop, buying pure gaming laptop you need at least $1.500

But it’s all is just my opinion base on my data and my (team) test. And hope you enjoying reading this post. See you in next post

Best Game Performance Graphic Card (GPU)

1. MSI R6850-PM2D1GD5
Newest technology already implement on this card : Microsoft Direx X 11, AMD Eyefinity, AMD Eyespeed, and AMD HD3D technology with this all latest technology you be able to play newest 3D game.

This GPU card using 1 GB DDR5 with 256 bus speed on 4,000MHZ (4Ghz) for and for gpu on 775 Mhz. MSI Afterburner are interesting feature that with it you can make custom setting and over clock your GPU easily and on my test I reach 4,8Ghz GPU speed and 975Mhz memory clock and it make about 23% performance increase. But you need more cooler if you want to do it.

On standard speed this GPU show me good performance on game test, on Battlefield Bad Company 2 (1900x1200 setting) this card provide 36 FPS and it's little higher with his equal competitor Nvidia GTX 460 which only reach 34 FPS. on Metro 2033 game this card reach 20 FPS (1900X1200) FPS and his competitor Nvidia GTX 460 only reach maximum 16FPS. it's mean 5% higher performance yes it's not significant number, but on a lower setting the gap between them show more significant number.
my score :
Performance : 88
Design : 89
Price : 85
Feature : 87

2. Sapphire Radeon HD 6970

This card is high end performance, if we compare with his brother HD 6950 this GPU have more shader and texture unit (1536SP/96TMU). This GPU work on 880Mhz and memory on 5500Mhz. Exclusive feature like : Enhanced Quality Anti Aliasing) EQAA, AMD Power Tune Technology, and switch able dual BIOS. Sapphire Radeon HD 6970 use big vapor chamber cooling system and support full CrossfireX (multi GPU) for more performance. Dual switch BIOS placed on left side. to work this card need more power and provide by 8-pin+6pin power connector. Display output : @ DVI, 1xHDMI, and 2 miniDP which totally support eyefinity.

GPU performance is excellent there are significant increasing performance for older type. This performance significantly shown when it work use direcX 11 or intense Tessellation. If I compare it with their rival Nvidia GTX 570 on several test their performance ara almost equal, but on game performance such as AVP, Metro 2033, and 3Dmark 11 benchmark, HD 6970 lead significantly then Nvidia GTX570.

Even need more power from 8-pin+6-pin from PSU, at full load this card use less power then Nvidia GTX570 which use 6-pin+6-pin power connector, and it’s equal on idle.beside that working temperature Radeon HD 6970 is 43 C on idle and 85 C on heavy load it’s mean better then Nvidia GTX 570 that work 48 C on idle and 89 C at full load.

Overall this card very comfort to use in any game with high resolution and high detail. The only thing that I can’t talk about this card is PRICE.

Best value Laptop

I did little research about top value laptop. and I looking laptops in $500-$1000 price range. I got several type that match with my criteria, include laptops performance, price, design, after sales service and off course durability. I search laptop with stable multi tasking capability for medium cpu load software and game. here are the laptops :

Acer AS5745G-7671 15.6-Inch Laptop - Black
First think i like from this laptop is excellent battery with 6 cell (4400 mAh)5hrs 20mins running in standard setting , comfort keyboard to use with full number pad on the right side. clear and bright 15.6 HD widescreen display provide more visual area for work with. Intel Core I3 processor and Nvidia GeForce GT 420 Graphic with 1 gb memory and 4 gb RAM make this machine powerful enough for most software and game. With NVIDIA Optimus technology you get great battery life and performance whether you're watching a video, surfing the web, or playing a 3D game. GPU-accelerate the editing of your photos and HD videos and push the limits of your web experience with the new generation of GPU-accelerated browsers like Internet Explorer 9.
this thing quite stable to use in couple hours with out any problem (but i recommend to use laptop lap/extra cooler. i don't impress with 1.3mb webcam but it's just optional for me because i don’t really need it anyway. Plays games pretty fast in normal settings. boots up quite fast(maybe because i don't have that much stuff in it). ok here are the feature :
• 15.6-inch HD widescreen CineCrystal LED-backlit display
• 2.4 GHz Intel Core i3-370M dual-core processor
• 500 GB SATA hard drive
• 4 GB of installed DDR3 RAM (1066 MHz)
• NVIDIA GeForce GT 420M with 1 GB of dedicated DDR3 video memory
• 8x SuperMulti DVD±R/RW drive
• 1.3-megapixel HD webcam
• Stereo speakers with third-generation Dolby Home Theater audio enhancement technologies
• Wireless-N Wi-Fi
• Multi-Gesture Touchpad
• Multi-in-1 Digital Media Card Reader
• 4 USB ports
• HDMI high-definition audio/video output
• Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit)
• Get more features with Windows Anytime Upgrade.
• Acer Backup Manager Software
• 6-cell lithium-ion battery (4400 mAh)
• Weight: 5.72 pounds

My score:
Performance : 88
Design : 90
Price : 82
Feature : 83

Dell Inspiron 1545 15.6-Inch Laptop
The Inspiron being there low end range for consumers that just need a standard laptop. I like sound of this laptop I think it's better than other laptop with integrated sound chips, but this performance also provide by good internal speaker. other thing that I like is soft big comfort keyboard tuts. and one of the best keyboard from value laptop that I’ve try to use. but this keyboard not included number pad at right side. the touch pad has fine finish with "glossy" look.
fair to say that this machine perform very well. multitasking with regular home application done well. At high setting battery life only in 1H 13" with full screen brightness. it is low if I compare with other value laptop with similar price and specification.
Overall, a very good home entertainment experience for a value laptop. and one thing that I like it most is this laptop not come with common black/white/sliver color it's beautiful ice blue. I love it.
product feature :
- intel Dual core T4400
- 3 Gb memeory
- 640 gb harddrive 5400 rpm
- 15.6 high definition led display
- windows 7 premium

My score:
Performance : 89
Design : 81
Price : 83
Feature : 85

Lenovo Ideapad G560 0679-4TU 15.6-Inch Laptop (Black)
this laptop performance is quite good for running everyday application and multi tasking but heavy gaming is horrendous on this thing. Face recognition software is useless so don’t let you get closer to your laptop. some people complain this laptop for low volume internal speaker. but if you have plan to use external speaker you can denied this think.
this laptop powered by Intel Pentium Dual Core T4500 processor with feature :
• Intel® Core™ i5 processor
• Genuine Windows 7 Home Premium
• Lenovo Energy Management 5.0 enables extended battery life, long-term battery durability and lower noise output through dynamic fan control
• 15.6 inch high-definition LED backlight display, 16:9 widescreen
• HD graphics support and HDMI output
• High-performance multimedia: 4GB DDR3 memory and 320GB HDD storage
• DVD reader/writer
• Integrated high-speed WiFi
• Numeric keypad for easier data logging and gaming
• Integrated web camera

this laptop is suitable for college student or people with limited budget. this laptop are fine for small office home office work. but for heavy software and video rendering you have think twice before buy this thing.

Gaming Laptop

I love play PC games usually i play on my powerfull desktop. but now my mobility getting higgher so i guest i need a laptop, powerfull laptop for gaming so i start to find a good laptop faor gaming. i go to many site and forum to find out which laptop is good enough for my purpose. and finally i figure out that are 2 series that match with my criteria Asus G73JW Republic of game series or Toshiba Qosmio 505 series.

Asus G73JW series
It's powerfull laptop almost as good as my desktop it's powered by  i7-740QM (1.73GHz Quad-Core with Turbo Boost up to 2.93GHz),  RAM (DDR3 1333MHz), 2GB x 4 SODIMM Sockets, up to 16GB, Nvidia GTX 460M Graphics with 1.5GB GDDR5, GB HDD; Super Multi Optical Drive; 802.11 b/g/n; 1x USB 3.0 port, 3x USB 2.0; Gigabit LAN; VGA and HDMI out

Asus G73W Designed well with amazing performance for fast game and entertainment. this machine be able to handle many task at the time. Graphic performance is outstanding for a laptop it's produce high FPS on common game with medium resolution. It's 4.3 stared laptop and 10 best selling laptop at amazon. it's about $1.449,00
but i think it's reasonable for high performance gaming laptop.
Score from me :
Performance : 92
Design          : 83
Price             : 80
Feature         : 85

Toshiba Qosmio X505
Toshiba Qosmio 505 is gaming laptop in toshiba laptop line it's powered by Intel Core i5-460M Processor 2.53 GHz (2.80 GHz with Turbo Boost Technology), 3MB L3 Cache, Configured with 4GB DDR3 1066MHz (max 8GB) 2 main memory slots. Both slots occupied, 500GB (7200 RPM) Serial ATA hard disk drive with TOSHIBA Hard Drive Impact Sensor (3D sensor), DVD SuperMulti drive supporting 11 formats, 18.4" diagonal widescreen TruBrite TFT display at 1680 x 945 native resolution (HD) with native support for 720p content, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460M with 1.5GB GDDR5 discrete graphics memory,  Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit with a 12 cell/48Wh Lithium Ion battery pack; Battery Life

this laptop produce good performance in common game but for heavy game it's beaten buy Asus G73JW. this laptop be able to handle multi task operation as well but it's not give performance as asus Gj3W. it's not strang because asus use intel I7 platform processor with 8 gb Main memory , toshiba commio still use I5 processor with 2 gb memory. it's my second option, this product is cheaper and use wider screen. talk about graphic card toshiba qosmio 505 and Asus G73JW it's equal. but like i said before asus processor and memory more powerful then toshiba qosmio so in heavy game cosmio beaten nby asus on FPS (Frame Persecond) performance even it's not to significant number.

core from me :
Performance : 86
Design          : 84
Price             : 90
Feature         : 85

For me Asus it first option. $340 spare between them, biut I7 Processor and 6 GB more memory it's worth for me, but this is just my opinion, based on hardware spesification and game performance.
