Looking for a decent laptop, can someone give me some advice on this one?

So I have been looking into getting a new laptop, and plan on using my employee discount from my company. We have discounts for HP.com, Lenovo, and Dell. I plan on using my laptop mostly for gaming, to replace my old desktop which I haven't used in years (my laptop is just more portable and easier to access). From what I have available to me, this seems like the best deal that I can get for a decent gaming laptop. Is this a good deal?
