Virtually any modern laptop should be fine, especially the AMD A series. They have great integrated graphics.

I think this would be one of the cheapest laptops that could realistically work. It's quite slim too:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Here's something with better performance and is ultra slim, 13'' screen though.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Here's something else that isn't nearly as slim but it has massively improved performance. Also has a Bluray drive.

So you're unhappy that you could get a laptop that would do the job for less? What?

My point was that the AMD A series would be best for you and that you could easily afford the top end one (A10). I won't make any more suggestions any more then, you clearly don't appreciate it.

Had some links but editing them out now, no point in helping someone who is rude to a person giving very good recommendations.

He recommended you and linked you to a laptop that has "equal" capabilities of an MSI GX60 (Without the discrete GPU) which still runs games on high on the APU.

I've probably browsed through thousands of laptops and sometimes you can find special deals and limited time offers that can give you 20% more performance than another laptop of a higher price. Always take time to look at what people recommend.
For example you might be looking at lets say an MSI GE60 W/GTX 660m for $1100 and then someone comes along and links you to a Lenovo Y580 / FHD W/GTX 660m for $999 and you might then be like "im glad that that person just saved me $100 because I dont need Matte (lets say you prefer glossy) and it comes with a Blu-Ray
