In Search Of The Ultimate Gaming Laptop

Written by

Gaming technology is developing at a blistering pace.

Extremely fast. White knuckle fast. So fast it is very

hard to keep track of all the latest innovations even

for the most die-hard gaming enthusiast.

Gaming laptops are getting faster, sleeker and more

powerful even as you read this. There has been a rapid

deployment of gaming and laptop technology recently…

dual core, dual graphics, dual hard drives… and the

list keeps growing.

Larger screens are another major improvement with 19

and even 20 inch displays coming on stream, offering us

a greater viewing area and more enjoyment.

With all these changes taking place in the gaming sector,

where can you find the ultimate gaming laptop, the most

powerful motherboard of all extreme machines? The best

gaming performance for the money?

Where to look? Where to start the search?

Every gamer can tell you the heart of any gaming laptop

is the graphics card. You must get the most powerful

graphics or GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) if you want

your gaming system to perform to the max.

Now everything is coming up dual!

If one card is good, two must be better! You can now get

gaming systems with twin or dual graphics with over a Gig

of memory. You must also have a way to handle all this

power so look for PCI-Express with SLI (Scalable Link

Interface) systems.

Don’t skimp your pennies here, try to get the best Graphics

possible, a lot of gamers go for the high end GPUs such

as ATI Mobility Radeon or NVIDIA GeForce Go series. Usually

the higher the number the better performance it will deliver.

Know Your RAM

RAM is very important in a gaming laptop mainly because,

as with any computer, RAM will largely determine how fast

it will perform. Same as with your graphics card, go for

the highest RAM possible. Know the difference between

ordinary RAM and Video RAM. The latter is very important

for running and getting full enjoyment out of your extreme

gaming laptop.

Helping to speed everything up, high end gaming laptops

now come with dual core processors, most gamers go for

Intel or AMD processors. Go with a SATA (Serial Advanced

Technology Attachment) hard drive with the highest storage

and speed you can afford.

If Money Is No Object

If you want the ultimate gaming laptop you will probably

have to pay a hefty price for top performance. The ultimate

gaming laptop is really a luxury item where price is never

much of a consideration in the first place. For those lucky

few where money is no object (These creatures do roam the

earth I am told!), searching out the best laptop money can

buy must be a pleasant task.

Your hunt would no doubt begin with some of the top gaming

brands such as Alienware (now owned by Dell), Voodoo (now a

part of HP) and Rock Direct, a UK Laptop Company.

Let’s face it, these high end gaming laptop manufacturers

are mainly selling style and looks at a premium price. Many

people criticize this as style over substance, most of these

companies are using the same gaming components shipped in

from Taiwan and assembling them into neat little gaming

(marketing) packages.

But we are talking about luxury items here, if truth be

told how many people would buy a Ferrari if it looked like

a Model T? If you’re looking for the ultimate gaming machine,

you will probably want the looks too? It’s a package deal.

You can’t have Paris without a Hilton!

New Alienware ALX

Some of the latest gaming models have to be seen to be

believed. The new Alienware ALX Series should be on your

list if you’re looking for the ultimate gaming machine.

Don’t dismiss the latest Dell XPS M1710 laptop, which

replaces the current XPS M170.

You should also cast your eye back to the mother country,

Rock Direct in the UK has always been an innovator when it

comes to gaming laptops. They were one of the first makers

to ship Dual Core laptops. Their Xtreme SL Pro comes highly

rated with twin AMD Turion 64 TL-60 (2GHz) processors and

dual NVIDIA GeForce Go 7950 GTX 512MB graphics cards via

PCI-Express with SLI.

Gamers will be taking note of the new DirectX 10 Znote

6625WD from Zepto. Another company in Europe who is

taking the lead by introducing DirectX 10 gaming which

will be powered by Santa Rosa, Intel’s 4th generation

Centrino Pro platform. Other vendors closer to home,

are featuring this new platform such as HP’s Pavilion

dv6500t.

Other Brands

Of course, you must not forget many of the other major

laptop companies which produce high performance machines

such as the Apple’s MacBook Pro series and the HP’s Pavilion

line. These shouldn’t be ignored in your search for the

ultimate gaming machine.

Actually the search for the ultimate gaming laptop is

rather pointless, wait two minutes after you have purchased

your prized machine and there will probably be something

new that will outperform it. Your best bet is to try to

buy a machine that you can easily up-grade.

Besides, most gamers are an independent and stubborn lot,

so regardless of what the experts or the benchmarks say,

any gaming notebook they finally do buy will be their

ultimate gaming laptop. If not in fact, then at least

in their own minds and in the end that’s all that really

matters!
