This post is the 1st in the series " World's best Laptops ". You may like to read Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3 | Part 4.

Yesterday, while I was surfing around looking for a good yet cheap laptop i accidentally hit a few products all of which had jaw-dropping configurations. I was having a hard time believing what i was seeing and my condition was like that of a hungry dog staring at a bowl of fresh meat and bone , a very very hungry dog. So, when i had have enough of drooling, I decided to compile a list of these extreme gaming machines (Why should I have all the fun?). And here it is.

The configurations of these laptops given below consist of the best components available on offer for customization by their respective companies and thus are fully beefed-up. Little downgraded versions of the same laptops are also available for sale and will obviously cost you much less. This list is intended to give you a brief idea about the best laptops of present times and is by no means comprehensive. You can check the website of respective companies for exhaustive details as well as for the current prices of each laptop (links are provided below). This article is divided into 3 parts, begining with this which is the first of the lot and will soon be followed by the other two. So stay tuned...
