Starting a new job that will let me play on the computer during slow times. What is a solid laptop that will run from 3-6 EQ accounts at the same time as well as play some of the newer games out there. Hoping to stay around $2000 or less. Love the Alienware, but damn, $3000+ is a bit steep. Any help appreciated!

I'm an ASUS stan, I'd probably just pick out whatever RoG laptop fits your needs, grab an incline cooling stand and an opolar fan and call it a day

Why so overpriced laptop when you can get cheaper laptops that can run EQs easily? :P Unless you plan to play FPS and other heavy games/programs!

Thanks for the input guys. Got an ASUS on the way. I've used ASUS boards in all my builds for over 2 decades so I'm a fan as well. Very similar to the one Kaley listed, but $500 or so cheaper. I don't do any FPS any more, too damn old, but I like to run a number of 4x strategy games at max graphics. :)

Thanks for the input guys. Got my health improved with one of these standing desk chairs and an ASUS on the way. I've used ASUS boards in all my builds for over 2 decades so I'm a fan as well.

An ASUS laptop will serve you well. I've had one for years now. It did come with a faulty hard drive but they changed it and it worked well ever since.
