Is there a better Option???

Fri May 20, 2011 2:54 pm

Well unfortunately I am selling my desktop and purchasing a Laptop that will hopefully play a few games and give me the mobility I need. My new job requires a lot of traveling and it leaves me with little time to play games. But I definitely would like the option to continue to play Starcraft 2, COD Black Ops, Bulletstorm, and Bioshock 2. It appears that the Geforce GT 555m will be able to play those games at 1600x900 just fine on high. I have found few reviews on the GT 555m and I was wondering if anyone has experience with the XPS 17 or something similar. Buy the way I am open for other suggestions. With Dell Coupons the total for this config comes out to 1199.99 plus tax and shipping.
