Hello friends. I write a lot, and use a bunch of productivity software for a living. But I also game, a lot. I need a new gaming lappy, or perhaps build a PC. My old laptop ran it's course -well, my wife busted the hdd and some other parts, long story.
I was thinking of getting another laptop that can handle most gaming (it needs to be strong, but it doesn't have to play big budget multiplatform action games or benchmark games). I mostly play pc style games and older rpgs and strategy/sim style stuff. Yadda yadda.
Has anyone seen a sub-1000 buck laptop that can do most of the dirtywork, but isn't bloated with all kinds of nonsense-ware or overpriced like alien. Best Buy seems like their stuff is a little high priced and bloated to the gills, same with Alien.
I bought a custom laptop from Sager once, was a beast, but I returned it because it was too expensive and I felt guilty.
I could also build a PC and keep it in the other room. With all these streaming abilities coming out, it might work out. Probably be cheaper?
I dunno. Thanks in advance for muddling through this unclear line of advice solicitation.
