    Grand Theft Auto, Mafia, Racing Games, The Sims, among other great games
    How many hours of battery life do you need?
    3-4, but it doesn't matter as it's' a gaming laptop and not going to have great battery life and will have it plugged in when gaming :)

    Would you prefer to see the notebooks you're considering before purchasing it or buying a notebook on-line without seeing it is OK?

    Yes, but i usually look online anway for my gaming laptops
    What OS do you prefer? Windows (Windows 7 / 8), Mac OS, Linux, Chrome OS, etc.
    Windows 10(don't like Mac or Apple)

    From the choices below, what screen resolution(s) would you prefer? Keep in mind screen size in conjunction with resolution will play a large role in overall viewing comfort level. Everyone is different. Some like really small text, while others like their text big and easy to read. (Scroll down to see screen resolution information.)

    At least 3-4 years

    at least 1TB HDD and a 256GB SSD, although i usually use my own storage drives
    Do you need an optical drive? If yes, a DVD Burner, Blu-ray Reader or Blu-Ray Burner?

    Not really, althought it would be nice, i could buy a external one :)
    P.S i do have some experience but not that much, as i'm new to PC gaming, and know most parts of a computer :)

    i have found some laptops i'm interested in, would like to hear everyone's opinion first though, i will post them in morning as heading to bed in 5.
    Thanks everyone ::)

    Can you add some new lines? This is really hard to read.

    Start out looking at like the MSI GT75 and Clevo P650HS and see which one you like more, and we can narrow it down from there.

    I fixed it now you should be able to read it clearly. I cant buy clevo as they are US based, i dont like the MSI GT75. Is the Alienware 17 R4(i7 7820HK GTX 1080 a good one?

    Coffee lake is still way too expensive..
    3.9k USD Sager :(


    When you convert £ to $, your budget is 3,200ish.. Very Niceee..

    I'm also looking for one at the moment, but around half your budget.. Max $1,700..
    Since you are expecting it to last only 3-4 years, I reckon half the budget with GTX 1070 is plenty enough ($1500 - $2000)

    My old / current laptop is with GTX 560M.. Its still alive & well, but can't play game anymore (idk the exact problem).

    From my research & forum input, check these vendors: Hidevolution, XoticPC, GentechPC.. Brands: Sager & MSI..
    Good luck finding the best deal!

    I did mention it would be UK only sellers :)

    DaveLee on YouTube had good thermal with his AW 17 R4 with the max temp(when OC was 89 degrees) and asked a owner on YouTube and he said he has no issues(heat or thermal) so i'm assuming DELL/Alienware have fixed the issues?
    Should i get it?

    Yeah, I was just giving my thoughts. Maybe they sell those brands in UK too.
    I'm not a pro myself, thats why I'm digging around internet & forums for information too :)

    About Alienware, I read elsewhere that the Pros dont buy stock price.
    They get better price through connection of some sort / knowing people in forums like this.
    In Linus forum, they seem to recommend Alienware (yes, with heat issue but yes, there is a fix).

    I reckon you wouldn't need to spend that much to get what you want.
    But if you want to pay premium for nicer stuff, maybe consider razer blade?
