Hi,

 I currently have a Dell XPS L502X. Not a bad laptop for the little bit of gaming and side work that I do. Unfortunatly it's 4 years old and I've gone through 2 Hard Drives and not I Currently have a 20 gig hard drive in there so that I can do work. AND the battery has completely failed. BUT THATS' IT. So It's time for an upgrade. I need some advice on a new laptop. I'm looking for something that will be good for gaming at the same time I will be running alot of CAD files and PDFs and memory hogging excel sheets, mostly at the same time. I have looked into the basic Alienware 15. My wife says that's too expensive. So I looked further into getting maybe the higher end Lenovo Y70. I was also looking into an MSI GE60 Apache-Pro 061 (or 012 I can't remember, I've slept since I looked last). The Alienware is at the top of my budget, so there's my price range. So if anyone has any input please help me out and let me know of any other options out there. THANKS IN ADVANCE.

:welcome:    Squashua,

 

Can you tell us in which country you will be making the purchase and which particular CAD software you use, the Alienware 15 and the lenovo Y70 are both expensive bits of kit and for me the Dell is overpriced considering it only has a 15" screen.

I'm in the united states. And AutoCAD 2014. I have started also looking into a Sager, but I just can't find something I'm happy with AND run my programs AND not cost more than 1200.

Worth considering is the Lenovo Z70 17.3-Inch Laptop (80FG0037US) here

 

Couple of reviews on MSI Apache and ASUS ROG GL771JM-DH71 here other reviews that I have read say that the MSI gets very hot, the ASUS gets poor reviews at Newegg here both should be avoided based on the information available.
