This is usually a sign of a better model coming along soon, you may either be patient for the upgraded model or buy something else instead. For the price you're paying you should be able to get something pretty kick ass, or you could opt for a 1000 Euro gaming desktop and a 400 Euro used or new laptop (for not gaming, just on the go computing).
It's a bit like if I was looking for a nice sports car, someone suggested me to get a SUV instead, and maybe a cheapo sports car on top of it. :)
For me currently the desktop replacement laptop suits better, even when it costs extra. I already have a couple of lighter and older, less capable laptops (one from my work), so if I wanted a desktop + laptop combo, I'd just get the desktop on top of my current laptops.
I think I'll just get now a G75 level laptop (which according ot specs runs pretty much all current games pretty smoothly on high details... but most probably not the next-gen console level games when they start appearing on the coming years), and if and when at some point in future I feel it is lacking with performance on some very newest games I might have accidentally bought, I might consider an even more powerful desktop to completement it.
But knowing me, I'll probably won't be buying that many newer games after this recent Steam sales, so possibly I won't feel the need to upgrade for a few years anyway. I don't normally buy the very latest games, so it is quite ok to me even if the performance is not on the highest top. My current target is the ability to run something like Witcher 2 and Metro 2033 (and anything below) pretty smoothly, and that will be enough for me for the coming years. As far as I can tell, G75 achieves that.
If I wanted to be able to run the very latest games of the coming years with highest details, then I guess I should rather look for desktops.
I don't have any Blueray movies, not sure if I'll ever buy them, and watching them specifically on a laptop sounds weird.
You could plug the laptop to a TV and enjoy the video quality that way. A friend of mine does.
Yeah, but frankly I was thinking of getting e.g. a PS3, if I ever wanted to watch Blueray movies. But oddly, I've yet want to watch even the first BR movie.
