Gaming laptop advice?

Hi all!

I am currently looking into buying a decent gaming laptop I can easily carry on with me as hand luggage (along with other stuff) and was wondering if you had any suggestions? Budget has elasticity: I will look at performance/portability...

I already have a decent desktop so please, don't bring the argument about how much better desktops can be for the same price: this is a comp I will be using during business travel which is about 10-15 days month and a desktop won't fit into my hand luggage (nor I would have the energy to carry it around airports)...

If money is no object, I'd get the Razer Blade, but, since I'm a cheapskate, I'd probably settle for the similarly-performing MSI GE40 2OC-009US for about a third less money and then figure out a way to cool it effectively.

Both weigh in at about 2 kilos.

Thanks, I will look into it...I've been in way too serious business lately and am way out of the loop when it comes to comp hardware...

What's your budget? If you need a cheap, powerful laptop, I'd go with the MSI GT60. It's $600 less than the Razer, but at least 15% more powerful. You can also change the graphics card. If you need a laptop that outperforms anything else on the market, I recommend the Alienware 18 laptop. Be warned: it's expensive. You can also use SLI with it. It's more like a small desktop, though, because it has only a few hours of battery life.
