    oh man, yes
    I don't know what is immersive for you, but even an 1500$ laptop will let you play on highest settings many of heaviest games.

    what are you looking for?

    I am looking to play games like battlefield 3 on the highest settings

  3. Today's mobile GPUs are extremely potent.
    This is especially true in the high end. (Which a $2000 budget qualifies you for)

    An nvidia 680m is a desktop GTX 670 downclocked with slower RAM.

    An AMD 7970m is a slightly downclocked desktop 7870.

    With that kind of power, it is absolutely not a surprise that laptops equipped with 1 or 2 of those can deliver solid gaming experiences.

    I'd like to point out that a desktop will always result in better performance for your money as you pay for the convenience and mobility of a laptop. However, the sacrifices once made for that union are MUCH lower than they used to be.
