    [1nickt]: Corion HPs? ugh. I was impressed with Lenovo's gaming laptops; if it weren't for the red backlighting and general flashiness of the aesthetic, I might have gone with that. But all that was until I discovered that the Dell Precision line is still around.
    [1nickt]: stevieb I don;t doubt that there's a difference. BestBuy has "consumer" models only on display.
    [ambrus]: 1nickt: for some reason, these days they call every computer "gaming", even ones that gamers wouldn't buy. I've bought a keyboard that was labelled "gamer", despite that it has hard springs and seems to be way better for typing than for gaming;
    [1nickt]: I though the gamers like that because they bash the keys so hard.
    [ambrus]: and I've seen motherboards with no fast expansion ports for a video card but built-in hardware RAID advertized as "gaming".
    LanX has a shaming laptop
    [ambrus]: 1nickt: my impression is that the gamers like the softer springs, because fast reaction time is more important to them then feedback from keypresses to recognize typos.
