Ask CG: Best gaming notebook for around $2000

Reader James writes,

I’m looking at getting a gaming notebook and am ready to drop some good cash on one, but don’t know which one to buy. High-end gaming notebooks seems to be something of a niche product now as they are only available from a few companies.

I think I’ve narrowed it down to either the Alienware M17x, Asus G72JH, or the Origin EON18. You guys play with any of these? I think I just need someone to tell me which one I should buy.

Funny you should ask, James. We’re arranging a round-up of all three of those, plus a few others right now. Stay tuned, but our commentors will no doubt lead you in the right path, too.
