Hi, I have already done some searching here, but unable to decide what laptop I want. I am looking for a laptop under, but no more than a thousand dollars that can handle high-end gaming( or close to it), I also do video-editing, and word-processing for school. I need something with a comfortable keyboard as well. Besides the low price, another problem is that I would prefer the laptop did not weigh more than six pounds I do not care about battery life or Harddrive size. Is it possible for me to find what I am looking for? If so, what do you all reccomend? If not, what is my next best option? Thanks.

Hi there,

What about the Alienware M11x? It is very light weight (4.4 lbs) and can handle high-end gaming. It does has a smaller screen though (11.6"). Are you looking for something bigger?

I am not a big fan of Dell or the alienware design. The asus mentioned is nice, but it is just it is just a little heavier than I wanted on top of the heavy load that I am already carrying. I would be willing to potentially go a bit higher on the price. If I could stay on the lighter end, and still have the function I want that would be best.
