    It also depends what games you are playing. However, if you intend to play any of the fairly demanding modern games be prepared to spend $1000+ though opinions vary.

    The CPU is important, but the GRAPHICS (GPU) is arguably more important. Pretty much every laptop I've seen with reasonably good graphics like a 750M or better had an adequate CPU.

    Here is an EXAMPLE of what I would consider a "gaming" laptop: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/15-6-touch-screen-laptop-8gb-memory-1tb-hard-drive/8937158.p?id=1218954926513&skuId=8937158&st=categoryid$abcat0502000&cp=1&lp=1

    Here's a more expensive model ($1290) with a great AMD APU in it (similar to the PS4 APU). A laptop with an APU (a good one) is worth considering as we'll see some future games using MANTLE which you can Google if you wish: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/fangbook-evo-17-3-laptop-8gb-memory-750gb-hard-drive/1992033.p?id=1219068210815&skuId=1992033&st=categoryid$abcat0502000&cp=1&lp=1

    *Avoid any laptop with AMD Dual graphics (an APU plus second GPU).
