The 10 Best Laptops of 2012
Best Gaming Notebook: Alienware M18x R2($4,454)
If you have the means, we highly suggest picking this up. Alienware’s “kitchen sink” rig has dual Nvidia GTX 680M GPUs in SLI, a quad-core Intel Core i7 processor, 16GB of RAM, dual 256GB SSDs and even a Blu-ray drive. It’s so powerful, we were able to play “Batman: Arkham City” at 70 frames per second with the settings maxed out. To top it all off, the M18X R2 has a gorgeous 18-inch 1080p display and Alienware’s awesome customizable backlighting.
