This has decent specs and is more portable than the rest of Asus's gaming line. Asus is a really good brand, and if I didn't have a MacBook Pro I would have an Asus laptop.

I don't personally have one, but the Microsoft Surface seems to be reliable by most standards. I imagine the note-taking pen feature would be quite useful when taking notes for uni.

I can only refer to the reply from Microcosm. The Microsoft Surface is a beautiful peace of hardware. I want to by one for myself if my Android Tablet gets broken.

Noooo they're disgusting!!! They are glorified tablets with the computing power of a potato.... unless you but the top ones in which case you get the computing power of a broccoli. They're also so awkward to use!

A friend of mine had one. The 500 or so dollar models have pretty good Intel processors. The RT is obviously crap but the newer ones aren't more expensive than a laptop and honestly don't seem that bad.

The pen feature works exceedingly well from what I have seen.

Maybe I'm old fashioned but I like my stuff to be either a tablet or a laptop, I think too much has to be sacrificed to have both.

I have played with Alienware before and they were pretty good for gaming, a bit on the pricey side, but ideal for gaming.

A powerful gaming laptop will be real big, heavy and pump out tones of heat.

Literally the only good suggestion in this entire thread.
