Follow up question. What if my 40 to 50k budget includes OS? what would be the best choice?
The Sager NP6659 includes an OS by default, but if you're looking for more locally available options, and they'd still be nowhere as good as the Sager NP6659:
- Acer Aspire V3-572PG (93RL, Core i7 4510U, 8 GB RAM, NVIDIA GeForce GT 840M 2 GB, 1 TB HDD, 15.6-in. HD GL TN)
- Dell Inspiron 15 5000 Series (5548, Core i7 5500U, 8 GB RAM, AMD Radeon R7 M270 2 GB, 1 TB HDD, 15.6-in. HD GL TN)
- Lenovo IdeaPad Z50-70 (N/A, Core i7 4510U, 4 GB RAM, NVIDIA GeForce GT 840M 2 GB, 1 TB HDD, 15.6-in. FHD GL TN)
- MSI GE40-2OL (7147, Core i7 4710MQ, 4 GB RAM, NVIDIA GeForce GT 750M 2 GB, 750 GB HDD, 14-in. HD+ AGL TN)
The GE40 will still be the best performer at the price tier until you hit the 60+ grand barrier.
