    Gaming/Development Laptop - Opinions

    I am in the UK, and looking to purchase a new laptop for predominately gaming (e.g. Crysis 2 , Rift on relatively high settings), and Unity Development.

    My budget is around £1600 or thereabouts.

    I have priced up 2 Dell laptops, and am wondering which of these would be my best bet.

    DELL XPS 17
    CPU: Intel Core I7-2820QM (2.20Ghz with TurboBoost 2.0 uo to 3.30Ghz)
    LCD: 17.3 FHD 3D WLED (1920x1080)
    RAM: 6Gb
    GFX: 3Gb Nvidia GT555M
    HDD: 640Gb

    DELL M17Xr3
    CPU: Intel Core I7-2630QM (2.00Ghz 4 Core)
    LCD: 17.3 FHD 3D WLED (1920x1080)
    RAM: 4Gb
    GFX: 1Gb GDDR5 Amd Radeon HD 6870M
    HDD: 320Gb

    Any other alternatives would be appreciated, as long as I can get them from somewhere reputable here and within my budget.

    Many thanks in advance, Ian.

    I bought the ASUS G73JH and I couldn't be happier. It's the best Windows-based laptop I've ever had (it's received very good reviews as well). I run Maya 2011, Max 2011, as well as use it for gaming and Visual Studio development.

    I am using the ASUS G73JH aswell and I am also very pleased with this machine.It devlivers a very heavy punch to a good price. have played Bad Company 2, Mass Effect 2, Bulletstorm, Cataclysm, Homefront and Dirt2, all on maximum graphic settings, runs very smooth and nice. I am using Maya 2011, Mudbox, Photoshop and UDK no problem or crashes one single time. Really the best computer I ever had.
