Best Gaming Laptop under $1000?

Hello, I'm thinking of purchasing a laptop in which I intend to game on. I'm simply wondering the best laptop $1000 and under. I want to play games like Skyrim, Fallout, and Cod on the go.

Must have:
- Good Brand (Acer, Asus, Dell, MSI)
- Quiet and efficient cooling
- At least 15'' screen
- Dedicated Video Graphics
- At least 500GB Hard Drive
- 4GB Memory

Thanks for your help and I'd really appreciate your feedback!

  3. You wanted a good "brand" but most brands don't actually "make" a laptop.

    The vast majority of laptops on the market are manufactured by a small handful of Taiwan-based Original Design Manufacturers (ODM), although their production bases are located mostly in mainland China. Major relationships include:

    Quanta sells to (among others) HP, Lenovo, Apple, Acer, Toshiba, Dell, Sony, Fujitsu and NEC
    Compal sells to (among others) Acer, Dell, Toshiba, Lenovo and HP/Compaq
    Wistron (former manufacturing & design division of Acer) sells to Dell, Acer, Lenovo and HP
    Inventec sells to Toshiba, HP and Lenovo
    Pegatron sells to Asus, Toshiba, Apple, Dell and Acer
    Foxconn sells to Asus, Dell, HP and Apple
    Flextronics (former Arima Computer Corporation notebook division) sells to HP
    Clevo was the supplier to Alienware pre-Dell purchase and still supplies the chassis and major parts to boutique builders such as Sager, WidowPC, Falcon Northwest etc.

    I'd opt for the Asus or Clevo

    Quote:
    CLEVO is a large Taiwanese computer company specializing in laptops. While the Clevo brand name is perhaps not widely known, their products are re-branded and sold by known boutique brand OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturers)… notably Sager, VoodooPC, Falcon Northwest, Eurocom, etc.
    They are also considered (by whoever knows about notebooks) to design and manufacturer the best of the best notebooks in terms of superior build quality and innovative designs.

    Three months ago I purchased the Y580 with these specs:

    3rd generation Intel Core i7-3630QM processor
    Genuine Windows 8
    15.6” display ,16:9 widescreen
    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660M 2GB graphics
    8GB DDR3 memory,
    750GB +64GB SSD HDD storage
    Integrated Bluetooth
    high-speed 802.11n Wi-Fi
    USB2.0
    USB3.0 connectors
    Backlit Keyboard
    Integrated DVD Drive
    Integrated 1.0M (720p HD) webcam
    Dolby Home Theatre V4 audio enhancement & JBL designed speakers
    HD graphics support
    HDMI output
    Battery Life : 4 hours
    Warranty : 1 Year Limited

    Boots up in less than 30 seconds. The construction appears to be solid. I like the feel of the keys. No offensive bloatware pre-installed. Plenty of bells and whistles. Skyrim and MW3 run beautifully with high+ settings.
    My only complaint is that the wireless adapter has been hobbled by Lenovo to prevent connection to 5Ghz (2.4Ghz only).
    The price on amazin is $999 now, Be worth buying.

    I hate win8. Tried it today and it was like trying to get out from under a wet parachute. Have you tried Linux? if so what are your thoughts?

    Not sure if this thread is dead (few months old...), but there are multiple programs you can install to get rid of that horrid "Merto" or "Modern" interface:
    IObit
    ClassicShell

    Also, great thread with great suggestions! Will be looking at all these options!

    Lenovo Y500 is released now, it features NVIDIA Dual SLI GT650M GPU, the performance is better than Y580's GTX660M, see this review:
