I was wanting to get a laptop for school and for games please comment

1080p screen
Good video card
Does not need long battery life
fast CPU
Possible solid state (if it makes a difference for gaming)
No more than 80g needed I have a 2t external harddrive
VGA port for tv
Warrentry if anything happens to it at least 2 years

I've been looking at the dell XPS 15z it looks good to me for about $2k (with solid) is it worth it?
Do solid states for laptops do any better for games than hdd?

Please answer thank you.

SSDs only reduce the load times in games,they have no effect on FPS;however,with SSDs,your system feels snappier overall
AW M17x R3/Sager NP8170/ASUS G74 all meet your requirements

Is it really necessary to have a gaming laptop?
I would suggest buying a laptop for 800 USD and build a nice computer for gaming.
Much friendlier for your wallet ;)

And what if you need a "portable" gaming computer ?
Of course buying a gaming desktop is cheaper but some people need portability/have small space
