    Laptop Advice

    Hey everyone so I'm looking to invest in a gaming laptop for when I go over seas early next year and I'd like some input on what peoples opinions are for top of the line stuff (or close to). I have a budget of around 2500$ and currently I'm looking at the new Fang3 Taipan. The specs seem to blow others out of the water but maybe I'm overlooking some things. Thanks your input, any and all would be helpful.

    Check these guys out. HERE.l

    They have a pretty solid selection and are very customizable. I would suggest if you went with them to buy your own ssd, you can get them fairly cheaper from newegg/amazon. for laptops installing a drive is super easy.
    for whatever reason the 7970m is a lot cheaper than the 680m and performs just as good.

    if i had to suggest one, it would have to be a sager or msi.
