    What gaming laptop should i get? An MSI, Asus or HP? They all cost roughly 2 grand. The MSI and Asus have roughly the same specs, which are better than the HP. However the reviews for the Asus say it has issues with heat management, and I can't find many reviews for the MSI, but MSI's seem to have issues with thermal management also. I can't find many reviews for the HP, but HP omen customers seem to generally have more positive reviews for their higher end laptops, HP seems to do a good job designing them from a thermal standpoint. Additionally the Asus has gysnc, unlike the MSI, but I think I want a laptop with optimus technology for better battery life/quieter performance, and gsync isn't compatible with optimus.

    Right now I would easily go MSI with the 120hz panels. The Dominator, Apache and Raider are all appealing to me at this point. I have had great luck with MSI in the past.

    That being said, I am waiting to see what happens in a few weeks with the release of the Asus Gl503 and Gl703. They have supposedly fixed the thermal issues from the 502 models and it will be coming with a 120hz display.

    I suppose I'll have my mind made up in a couple week.
