  1. It's very difficult to buy a cheap gaming laptop. The cheapest one I could find is in the link provided. It has much better graphics than any current gaming console.

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834216538
  2. What price range are you in?
  3. -cheap
    -good
    -laptop

    Pick two.
  4. Gaming laptops aren't exactly cheap. The cheaper ones come with AMD APUs which do perform well in most games on low-med setting while a laptop with dedicated graphics would set you back 6-700$ (cheapest I saw). Give us your budget and where you would like to purchase it and a bunch of us can come up with recommendations.

    My budget is anywhere from cheapest but able to perform well to around $800-900

    A bit over your budget but this would be a great choice\http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834152393

    So My main want for this is for Minecraft and other games to run smoothly on this. Is this the fastest I can get for around this price range? And also, would it be worth be getting a desktop? I've heard you can get some desktops that run a lot smoother for less than some of the top gaming laptops.

    If he plans a playing games that aren't too demanding this is the cheapest laptop listed http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834126031
    A desktop would be a lot more worth, for 900$ you could get a high end desktop instead of a med range laptop.

    What's the cheapest but high-end laptop that gaming would be very high and great quality?

    It depends on the games he would be playing. A low end gaming laptops would go for 5-700$. Med go for 7-1000$ and high end laptops would go for 1200$+. If a desktop is an option, it will be much better. Do you know what games he will be playing or plan on playing?

    Mostly Minecraft and maybe some games online but for the most part Minecraft and just other random PC games. I would preefer to get a desktop over a laptop, especially for gaming, but I don't know what prices go for. I would like the cheapest but high end on gaming desktop.

    Are you willing to build it yourself and order parts (what most people would recommend), or buy a prebuilt one instead?

    It would be cheaper to built it yourself but you will need to know what you are doing. If you are nervous and don't think you'd be able to build it, a pre-built would be 50-100$ more

    Alright, so if I'm gonna buy a pre-built desktop, great for gaming, and pretty cheap (or as cheap as it could go), how much money are we talking about?
