    So like the title says, i'm looking for good suggestions on a gaming laptop that is small, lightweight and wouldn't look out of place in an office environment. I currently have the AW 15 in my sig, but i'm going back in the office after 6 years of working from home and need something that would not draw to much suspicion. I love my Alienware, but it's a bright shining beacon that I'm not doing "business" related work, lol.

    Check out the HP Omen if an 860M is powerful enough for your needs.

    The Omen still looks "gamer" like IMO. Plus I don't think the 860M is powerful enough for my needs. I've been playing Dying Light on the AW 15 @ 1080p all High with avg FPS in the 40's. So i'd like to get similar performance, if that's possible.

    The Clevo P650SE (Sager NP8651) or P650SG (NP8652) would be a good option if it isn't too big / heavy for you (it's smaller and lighter than the Alienware 15).

    You may wanna completely fill out the suggested list in the forum. But try a Clevo/Sager 650SE or PG640SG.

    I think Omen looks fine for a non-gaming environment. Is the red keyboard light annoying you?

    Indeed... It's completely black and veryinconspicuous except for the chrome grills on the back.. I can't think of anything more plain looking and good though..

    That and the Omen has an 860m which is rather weak for a gaming laptop.

    Keyboard/speaker backlights can be changed to any color or turned off, fan LEDs are always red and come on when the fans are at high RPMs (no way to turn that off).

    See the fact that the fans lights can't be turned off kills the Omen for me. Need something that any and all lights can be turned off if need be.
