We are buying my son a laptop for graduation and looking for some advice on our purchase. He's a gamer so I want it to be able to run his games well. Thanksheart

I'd spend 1700 on a desktop and get a 300 tablet.

It is pretty much depending on what you are looking for. One of the things you need to looking for is what screen size you are looking for? 15 or 17. And do you want laptop to have a slim form factor or bulky but more power? MSI gives you wide selection of choices from a slim series of GS to big hulking machine of GT series. Alienware and Acer predator series are also good and within your budget range.

I'd go MSI if it's a gaming laptop.

I'd get 10 $200 laptops, load red hat or Ubuntu, and make a multinode system.

I wouldn't get him a laptop at all since he's a gamer. Consider either a desktop PC OR video game console such as the Nintendo Switch, Playstation 4, or Xbox One.

A laptop will cause trouble as they are not meant to last more than two years. A desktop or video game console will last him for many years to come.

A desktop pc in particular would allow him to upgrade piece by piece as budget allows.

Or don't buy him a gift at all and simply give them the $2000 to use for other things.

Do your son a favor, please.

Well, it's only 10AM, but that's the most ridiculous thing I've read all day.

Iagree everybody knows they only last as long as the warranty, like everything else.
