Great Graphics Laptops

I was hoping to make this a thread about where to find the best Graphics Gaming Laptops. Everyone has probably heard of Alienware. Have you heard of RazerBlade and Qosimo?

1.) Alienware
2.) Toshiba Qosmio (I have one that is about 2 years old is the only reason I mention it)
3.) RazerBlade GTX970 Graphics (PC Mag Editors Choice Jan2015) 4K screen resolution..

So to me, it looks like the sweet spot for a great gaming laptop is around $2,200 at the moment.

Have you got some others that should be considered for use with Real Flight?

One thing to keep in mind... if you are buying a $300 laptop, it will not run real flight.

I don't really know the low end price point where Real Flight runs reasonably well. Maybe someone can comment on that too!

Mostly, I am looking for high end systems +$2K for consideration.

Last year or so I picked up an MSI GT70-2OD laptop with a raid 0 256G SSD setup, 1TB secondary HDD, 24GB of memory, a GeForce 780 aux GPU with 3GB of VRAM, Intel iCore7, etc. for about $1900.00.

It runs everything VERY VERY well with everything maxed out, including new graphics intensive programs. You can even run Realflight using the HD 4600 ( integrated graphics ) without problems though the difference in FPS is noticible.

I've since upgraded it to 512GB Raid 5 and brought the memory up to 32GB.

My Laptop has been superceeded by the GT80 series which includes dual GTX 980's in SLI mode or Dual Titans, in the $2700.00 range. NICE!

These things are NOT light though weighting in at 15lbs.
