Naturally, hard-core mobile gamers are looking for monstrous, hefty laptops with cool design to complement their gaming rig desktop at home. While, average laptops are getting slimmer and lighter; gamers still prefer bulky gaming-oriented models with their incredible performance. None have exceptionally long battery life and they’re not exactly recognized for being shining paragons of portability.
Luckily, comfortable mobile gaming doesn’t always require dedicated laptops. In general, these gaming-capable laptop models can still be used in most office settings.
One good alternative is the Toshiba Qosmio X875 with slim ultrabooks design and hybrid hard drive. It includes 3D glasses but sadly lacks the touchscreen display. The Lenovo IdeaPad Y500 is a chunky Windows 8 laptop with respectable gaming performance. It has a rather sharp design and nice red keyboard backlighting. Sony Vaio E17 is a big-screen laptop that’s typically used as desktop replacement model. It’s worth a look for both gamers and productivity workers.
