The uses for the laptop will either be stright videos, webbrowsing and classwork, or the prior with gaming thrown in. Whether or not I will use the laptop for gaming is more dependant on how bad the framerate would be. I have a desktop that I recently built so not gaming on a laptop isn't the end of the world.
I'm also concerned about hot the laptop will get on ones lap (leaning me away from a gaming laptop as temperatures will be higher).
Sorry if I wasn't specific enough. Thank you to anyone that answers.
