Please recomend upgrade from ROG G751J

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

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.

 

EDIT:

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.
