Looking For Thin and Light Gaming/Multimedia Laptop

Hi,

I am currently trying to find a new gaming laptop. This laptop will be used for:

1. Gaming (Call Of Duty Ghosts, Battlefield 4, Bioshock Infinite, Assassin's Creed 4)
2. Multimedia (Photoshop, Illustrator)
3. School (Being carried in a backpack)

I am looking for something thin and light. I will be carrying this around and don't want some 10 pound brick on my back. But, I still want something very capable (At least GTX 770m or 870m).
Also, using the new update in April, I plan to stream games to my Nvidia Shield from this laptop. So, No AMD GPU's. I have been looking for a while but I want a few recommendations. Cheaper is always better but I understand what I'm asking is expensive.

Thanks in advance,
Colin

If you want to play on lower settings, you can actually get away with an Acer Aspire V7 with the Nvidia GT 750M graphics card. I've seen people play BF4 on medium with a GT 740M, so it is doable.

While it isn't a super powerful gaming machine, it is incredibly light at 4.4lbs and gets up to 8 hours of battery life which is where it will really shine in school.

If you want to portability but want a real gaming machine, the MSI GS60 which will cost you a lot more but be extremely easy to get around.


only issue with gs60 is it has less cooling. other then that it is a bit lighter.

The Razer Blade is probably the best choice for you.
