What Kind of Laptop Does a Game Designer Buy?
Posted by Devgamer [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 5 June 2009, 6:01 pm


What kind of laptop would a Game Designer buy? That's the question I've been asking myself over the last couple of months of laptop research.

I finally figured out the answer to that question, and for me it's the Sager 8662.

Who is Sager? Well... you know all those high end laptop companies out there? They all buy their parts from the same company... The company is called Clevo. Sager directly buys their parts from Clevo, and only makes the highest end gaming laptops.

I knew I wanted something that wasn't bigger than 15 inches for screen size, and I wanted something fast enough to game and work on.

I ended up with the Sager 8662, bought through xoticpc.com

Here are the specs:

So, why this laptop you ask?

All I have to say is this machine looks sexy! I couldn't love a human child as much as I love this laptop! (j/k)
