Which laptop should I buy?

Hello,

I'm going to buy a new laptop real soon, but I don't now which one..
Do u have any suggestions? I love gaming and making music.

These are my requirements:
Intel Core i5
15.6'' or 17.3'' FHD matte display
8GB RAM
A keyboard with backlight
750GB HDD or 500GB HDD with 128GB SDD at least.
A GPU that can handle BF4 on high settings..
Good speakers

I want the laptop having no trouble with overheating and so on, it just has to be good.
I was looking at the Lenovo Y50, I thought that was the way to go, but then I heard about the bad screen.. The say it's tearing when you play games, is it really that annoying, can you notice it:??:

I've got a budget.. $1450 or €1100, I live in the Netherlands so I prefer to order it in my own country.

Thanks for helping me out with this! :)

    Screen tearing can easily be fixed by enabling vsync in most drivers and games. Not a significant issue except for people who have no clue what they're doing.

    But you need a good GPU for that right? Can the GTX 860M 2GB GDDR5 handle BF4 on high with VSync enabled?

    I'm not familiar with what kind of performance BF4 requires from a laptop GPU, but vsync only reduces framerates in rare circumstances.
