These are when we turn to desktop computers, or desktop replacement laptops. The latter is fast becoming a popular form of fragging into the wee hours of the night. These types of laptops are usually at least a 17” in size, or bigger depending on how much of a viewable screen you want and how much money you have. Some of the power houses can contain some very impressive hardware like quad core processors and SLi or Crossfire discrete graphics. But again we come back to the downside, and to these laptop monsters it is heat, which my 17” Sony F series puts out its share of. So I could only imagine what a real gaming laptop can produce.
