Will the15.6" x15E Level 4 last three to five years as a gaming-only computer? Could I see this being outdated by then? I'm mainly talking about the video card. I would assume everything else would still be strong. I do not want the best out there due to a $2000-2500 limit, but I want a machine that will play games on ultra, or at least very high for at least three years. I do not really care for overclocking, nor am I a completive player. I want to be able to play any game for the timespan mentioned above, without having to play below very high. Thanks! I will, without a doubt, buy from DS in the future!

It depends on what games you play if you want maximum future proofing then a desktop is the way to go laptops become outdated very fast

Short Answer: Yes.

Long Answer: Nothing is truly future-proof, but the x15E incorporates the latest graphics, and a great processor. In total, although future products will no doubt outpace your current product, it is probably one of the best future-proofing jobs that you could do today.

That said, however, I would advise that you switch the 680M for the 7970M. There is no difference in performance, but you could save $300.

Five years is a *long* time in tech talk. For all we know, computer technology itself may be outdated by then  Wink

So, to truly be safe for three to five years, I should go the desktop route. I can update parts as they come out... ? What about the Marauder Level 4?

I'll keep that in mind.

Desktops are generally more future proof than laptops, but the x15E level 4 should get you the three years you are looking four, although the five years will be a stretch.

I believe I'm going to be going with the ODE Level 4 in the future.
