The kicker is that it needs to be able to be bought from Best Buy. I would like to be able to play most games currently out and coming out soon, it does not have to be at best settings though. Also, I need to be able to do some work with web editing/design work. Any input would be much appreciated.

Thanks.

+1 you're probably not going to be able to beat that without going over $1000

Thank you for the responses. Is it worth it to wait for a newer version in the next couple months for the Haswell line to come out?

Nope. Haswell stuffs will be overpriced at first. Plus there is a deal on the G46 right now. Normally it costs ~1k USD.

A real gaming laptop with good performance and great cooling system.


the Lenovo y410p does due to fact the graphics card is better and you can add an extra fan, graphics car or a extra hard rive

I couldnt find a best buy link but, I've found a great laptop from Lenovo that I'm planning on purchasing soon. If others have already mentioned this one, I apologize.
Here's the link, http://shop.lenovo.com/us/en/laptops/ideapad/y-series/y...
The starting price is around 1,299 but they always have weekly E-Coupons that bring the price down to below 800 bucks.
Its got a 4th Gen i7 - 2.4 GHz, GeForce 755m (2GB Memory), 8GB RAM, and a 1TB HDD(optional SSD i believe)
Its a great deal for a pretty dang good laptop. Good luck!
