So, my laptop died, and I'm in need of a replacement. I'm looking at several 750 models, but I'm unsure what I really need. I'll use it for movies, general internet use, and gaming. I mostly play MMOs, specifically WoW, SWTOR, and dabble in pretty much every mmo that gets released. Other than that I play a bunch of old rpgs and strategy games. Which 750 would you guys recommend?

I've found a used JX for $900 and a refurb JZ (90 day warranty) for $1400. I don't mind spending the extra, but would rather not if I'm not gonna need it.

Thanks.

I'm trying to get out as cheap as possible. I'm looking at refurbs and used. I have never had a problem buying refurbished. My last laptop lasted 12 years and it was a refurb.

Alternately, I'm looking at a G73sw that I can get for $600ish. Think that would serve my purposes?

Thanks.

as the G752 is being released soon G751 750 are dropping in prices on most reliable web sellers, like amazon, tigerdirect , ect but most of all buy what u can afford but without Optimus , I don't know much about the G73 check the thread . some in the G751/750 threads say they will upgrade to a G752 , although its against the rules of the forum to buy and sell , maybe a subtle suggestion may find u a deal here

Isn't Optimus good on the G751 series? Better design?

Also if you're looking for a good G750 model, I recommend the G750JX. The 770m is a sweet spot for WoW and everything else. You can run WoW on full ultra to 40+ fps
