Metabox Alpha WA50SJ Laptop: Australian Review

Gaming laptops are great, but they’re generally pretty expensive and you’re usually restricted to the components chosen for you. You don’t have to buy a laptop from a big brand-name manufacturer, though — there are companies out there that specialise in building you a notebook from scratch, using a prebuilt chassis, adding the components that you select and customising both the hardware and that laptop’s design to suit you.
