Whats a good, durable, gaming laptop?

Give our sales team a shout after 20 series laptops launch we may have something laying around in stockroom you could get a good discount. We often offload last gen laptops at cost if it’s a couple months into the new product cycle. Just bear in mind we don’t intentionally keep a stock of laptops.

are there any laptops with an oled screen with decent gaming capabilities?

so, one thing i’m confused about is sometimes laptops offer specifications, but then when it comes to choosing a configuation, those specifications aren’t available.

so, like the ASUS VivoBook 15 X505ZA lists 4 options for CPUs, 2200U, 2300U, 2500U, and 2700U https://www.asus.com/us/Laptops/ASUS-VivoBook-15-X505ZA/specifications/

but when i go where to buy, there is only 1 configuration available and it has the 2200U https://www.asus.com/us/Laptops/ASUS-VivoBook-15-X505ZA/wheretobuy/

is there a way to buy a different configuration?

Most likely through some other eTailer.

This is a pretty great deal for a laptop with a 15" screen, quadcore CPU, 16GB RAM, SSD, and a GTX1060 for $880 shipped. No 90Hz screen, but you weren’t going to get that anyway.

That 1060 will play pretty much every modern game at native 1080p at 60fps and high settings. Very few compromises, other than size, weight, and battery life of course.

After owning 2 MSI laptops I cannot reccomend em. Overall they are ok, but the build quality isn’t good, both my MSIs GS70 and GS63 broke the screen-chassis hinges.

I was really impressed with my System76 Oryx Pro. It’s got a 144 Hz screen, but the 4K one looks amazing! It’s got storage for days and Pop_OS! has really gotten the switchable graphics to not suck.
