Best place to buy gaming laptops?

Post by Burlyman » Tue Jan 02, 2018 10:01 pm

Title says it all. Been outta the loop for a while and I'm looking for a 4k laptop with Intel CPU and AMD graphics and a 512 GB SSD what's the best site or store to buy?

Newegg has always been my place to go for this kind of stuff, but I've never seen them offer Intel CPU/AMD graphics together...does that combination even exist?

Yeah I saw a laptop with that combination when I looked there. Okay, I'll just have to continue to comb through newegg until I find one. I may have to settle for nVidia, not that they're bad, but last time I owned one I wasn't impressed with the image quality. Thanks :)

Hardly anyone puts AMD GPUs in an Intel laptop because Nvidia GPUs put out the same quality and performance for half the power/heat/noise and double the battery. AMD has practically zero presence in the mobile GPU space other than laptops with AMD APU integrated graphics.
