It looks like this system has some pretty good stats for being so thin.

I am always curious about the cooling solutions in these thin gaming laptops. The benefit of the thicker laptops is that you can cram a big heatsink in there to avoid having to use fans that are too noisy. It's not as easy to do that with the thinner laptops.

Best Gaming Laptops

This new CyberPowerPC gaming notebook seems to be a great gaming laptop and with a decent price.
But for gamers on a budget the best option is to build your own gaming computer, actually it's easy to build an extremely powerful gaming desktop for less than $1000, I found this guide "How to build a gaming computer for under $1000" http://bestgaming-laptops.com/build-gaming-computer/ Since I built my own gaming computer I don't even use my Alienware 17 anymore :)

Nice advertising there. [/sarcasm]

In all seriousness though, it really depends on what you want. If you desire a mobile workstation more than a desktop, then laptops are pretty much your only option. Or if you go out to places and you want something powerful, it's easier to take a laptop than a desktop, monitor, and peripherals. At least this thing from the look of it isn't a boat anchor like a lot of other gaming laptops... but that just leaves cooling in question whether or not it's good enough.

Also you need more than $1000 for "extremely powerful".

But why buy this when you can spend $600 more on a tablet that can't play games?

Last I checked tablets don't cost almost $2000 starting.

Do not buy a gaming laptop unless you have a 3 year warranty.
Video card, hard drive, etc can and do fail.
Dust and Hair etc gets inside and most laptops you cant even service well anymore. I am looking at you thin and light. You have been warned!!

Don't buy a gaming desktop without a 3 year warranty, components can and do fail. /sarcasm

My girlfriend and I have gaming laptops from 2008. Both have Nvidia 9800M GT/GTS in them, which are notorious for failing, due to bad solder that shifts when it gets too hot. Both are used regularly. Clean out the laptop with compressed air, use good thermal paste and if you are really worried, get a cooling pad. Preventive maintenance can go a long way. All that still applies to ultrabook class laptops.

Last week they invented cans of compressed air you can dust things off with.
