Hello everyone, last night my ROG G751J stopped charging and turning on, ive already had to repair several times for battery related issues, so its probably time to upgrade to a new Laptop. Only problem is I'm a software guy and not so much a hardware guy and comparing specs confuses me sometimes. Anyways what i want is better or equal graphics, processor, audio, and screen (though i realize touch screens seemed to have fallen out of favor with rog lineup). Battery life should be around the same if not better. I am not stuck on ROG its just what im familiar with. My budget is around $2-3k, but less is better if there isnt comprises in that things are better or equal to the ROG G751J. In addition to gaming(Mostly WoW) I also use it for my CS masters HW (classes start in a week) and watching movies and shows.
My location is US. As I said before gaming as well as general use. 50-60% gaming(mostly WoW) 20-30% videos/web 10% programming and other general use.
I would like a min of 2-3 hours non-gaming battery life but flexible as I'm rarely away from an outlet.
I would like it to be under 13 lbs if possible.
My Rog G751J's specs are (Some specs can be found heren only differing by hardrive which mine is a Sata 6.0 Gb/s 1 TB 5400 RPM 2.5' HDD.
