Hi everyone, it's my first time posting here so I hope I do it right
As title shows, I'm wanting to buy my first gaming laptop but unfortunately I'm a noob at this kind of things /_\
I don't consider myself as a hard-core gamer but rather a medium-core multitasking gamer (if there's something like that) I play games like Sudden Attack, MAT , wonderland online and etc. I often leave my laptop over night for gaming and I can open up to 15 or more task per time making my laptop lag or freeze.
I hope to get a gaming laptop mainly for gaming but i would also use it for internet browsing (facebook, skype and etc) and some school assiment if necessary.

If necessary, my requirements for now are :

Fast speed ( browsing Internet n gaming )
Won't lag
Can handle hard-core multitasking
Nice graphic and sound system
Good cooling system
Long lasting ( for a few years )

My max budget is RM 5500 as in about 1800$ ( I'm Malaysian )
I'm thinking of buying Asus G75VW-AS71
Can anyone give me some opinion and suggestion please? Thank you >_<

Also, can I ask will leaving the laptop for day n nights harm / damage or decrease its lifespan?
And how long can a laptop last normally?

Please help and thanks >_<

Alice, be patient and wait for the G75VX for about 2 weeks. It's an upgrade with better CPU and better GPU.

VX should still be well within your budget (as far as i've seen it's floating around 1500$ here in romania), and as far as performance goes just add an ssd to it if the model you choose doesnt come with one and its going to be top notch specs and design wise (cooling). There's not really much more you could ask from a laptop as far performance goes.

PS besides an SSD some extra RAM will help out in the long run in heavy multitasking scenarios you suggest (16GB should serve you well enough unless you plan on using specialized ram hungry programs)

Also a Audio system that might work well. I also suspect that the USB 3.0 will may work better. It seems that Win 8 has native usb 3 drivers, My wife's new HP touch screen win 8 is flawless using only usb 3.0. Its taken awhile to get the VW usb 3.0 working and I still have to uninstall the drivers and reinstall every no and then to keep it working
