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.
