I already have a gaming desktop, but now I would like a gaming laptop. I will be playing modern games like Skyrim, Max Payne 3, and the occasional FPS game. Also, I would like to play those games on high settings, with a budget of $1000. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks again.

I recommend the Alienware 14 ($1099). The little bit of extra cash is worth the specs and build quality. Its much more optimised for gaming. You will be able to play BF4 all on high. And skyrim maxed out.

i5-4200M
8gb ram
Geforce gt 750m
750gb Hard drive

I tend to frequent www.xoticpc.com to get my gaming laptops. They have a super large selection, lots more upgrade options, and sometimes you can choose to leave out the OS to save money (providing you have an OS). I have a Sager laptop from there and I love it. Spent $1,200 on it for better specs than a $300 more expensive XPS.

Lenovo Ideapad Y510p would be your best option

The Y510 is a good option. alienware is good. have you tried looking at an ASUS n56 JR? those come with a 4700hq and a 760m. the y510 has the advantage of SLI but i prefer having a single potent video card than SLI. another good thing with the ASUS is its quiet and still keeps its cool. (temps usualy stay around 85 under prime 95 and MSI kombuster)

I have the Lenovo Y510p with the i5 and its a beast can run BF4 with a mix of high/ultra settings however you can only game with it when its plugged in and it does get very hot but other then those its pretty much the most powerful laptop your going to find for $1000 as the I7-4700MQ with SLI GTX 750s is $999 on newegg
