The Sager NP8690 Vs The Dell Studio XPS 16 Vs The ASUS G51J-A1 Gaming Laptops
While the Sager NP8690 isn’t the most aesthetically pleasing gaming laptop in the world, it is a high performance one. It has a simple black design that has absolutely no sense of styling. However, as far as performance is concerned, the Sager NP8690 gaming laptop is a winner. The standard configuration uses the Core i7 720QM CPU, made by Intel which is the same standard CPU that is used in the Studio XPS 16, but the Sager NP8690 gaming PC also includes a 15.6 inch display and a GeForce GTX 280M graphics card. The laptop’s display has a base resolution of 1600×900. However, even if the display is upgraded to a resolution of 1920×1080, there is almost no chance of the gamer experiencing any slowdown. The Sager NP8690 gaming machine laptop has a much larger graphics card than most gaming machines, but it is also more expensive than most gaming PCs. Like they say, you get what you pay for.
Of all of the gaming PCs that are available, the Dell Studio XPS 16 is the least expensive gaming laptop that uses the Core i7 CPY, but as far as expense is concerned, The ASUS G51J-11 gaming PC provides it with some pretty stiff competition. The Dell Studio XPS 16 uses the same amount of RAM and the same basic CPU as the ASUS G51J-A1. However, it uses the GTX 260M video card that is not so much faster that the average gamer will notice any difference. In addition, it is less expensive.
However, there is the matter of the hard drive. It comes standard with a 640 Gigabyte hard drive which is larger than what comes standard with the Dell XPS 16. Also, it comes standard with a 15.6 inch display that has a base resolution of 1920×1800. This is a much larger display than the base 1680×945 display that comes standard on it. If you upgrade the specifications on it so that they are equal to the display and hard drive on the ASUS G51J-A1, the Dell Studio APS16 actually costs more.
However, there are some other variables. The ASUS G51J-A has a shorter battery life because it has a smaller battery, and there are also some differences in other features such as ports and weight. All things considered the ASUS G51J-A1, the Dell XPS 16, and the Sager NP8590 are all pretty equal, and would make a good desktop replacement.
