4hour+ battery life on a gaming laptop? two hours is more likely.

Why lenovo hate? :p 

Does it HAVE to be a laptop? You could get MUCH better bang for your buck with a $700 gaming PC and a $400 working/travel laptop.

This would be my laptop suggestion. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Here's one with good portability

Large screen, 765m, mSATA, thin, and Xotic have great customer service.

And while staying under the 1500 budget, you can also grab some cooling upgrades through Xotic.

Gaming laptops tend to be 17inch in size due to their custom nature in terms of design.

This leads to heavy laptops, It's possible to find a 15.6" gaming laptop though.

If weight is an issue the 15.6" MSI

If it's not, the 17.3" ASUS
