I am no expert but I do like my Asus N56J I bought about a month ago. It was $950 I think.

Probably getting a good cpu and graphics card are the two most important things.

You aren't getting one for under a $1000.00. That's where the bottom of the barrel ones start (around a grand). Even if you can find one in that range it won't have a very long gaming life. You will struggle to run games a year from now.

Gamefaqs game rating system : 10 = Best Game Ever. 8-9. Crushing dissapointment. Below 8 :Total Garbage. This is getting ridiculous. people agreeing so far 117

You can get a gaming laptop for under a $1000. He didn't say it had to run all games at ultra settings.

You can spend $400 on a console and $400 on a cheap PC, or you can spend $800 to build your own and have the best of both worlds.

Why do you want a gaming laptop? Unless you absolutely need the smaller size or the portability a laptop offers, you would be much better served by a desktop-- $1000 will get you a solid gaming system. You can even get small cases-- you won't have as much room for extra hard drives and the like, but not all desktops have to have the massive cases.

So instead of building a gaming PC and increasing your knowledge of one and and getting the best price/deals/performance , you'd rather spend money on a product that isn't real?

But, do you need to game on the move? If the answer is 'no', then you would be best getting a very cheap laptop, and a desktop for gaming. A gaming laptop, unless you pay through the nose, is likely to be a) not very portable; and b) pretty rubbish for playing games.

Still couldn't afford one after all the trolling funds I see.
