Maybe even under $1500. The games I really only plan on playing are Skyrim, Far Cry 3, and GTA IV so basically the open world type games. I don't need a constant 60 fps but it would be nice. As long as it runs better than their console counterparts. I'd also like it to have decent parts so I don't have to worry about not being able to play upcoming games. The laptops I've been looking into were the MSI GT70, MSI GX60, Samsung Series 7 Gamer, and Lenovo Y510p. If you have any other suggestions please throw them out there.

And I have some questions too:
I've read that it's a good idea to get a laptop with 4th gen i7 Haswell? Why is that?
Does the SSD improve gaming performance?

Just a simply question, why a laptop?

That's a long penny to put into a laptop, nothing wrong with that if you need the portability, but you won't be gaming long on the battery alone.

Mainly because I need something to bring for college. I'm going to be spending a lot more time in the library where I'll need my laptop. I also planned to do most of my gaming at home anyway I hear these things don't last more than 3-4 hours.

Wouldn't it be better to buy a cheap laptop with good battery life and a good gaming desktop then?

Logic would say spend $1100, get a much better desktop (cause you're going to be gaming at home...), and a laptop (included in the price) that's smaller, lighter, and actually portable because you can use the battery.....

Although this is gamefaqs so you probably didn't come with/for logic.

Could I fit that all within $1000-$1500? I honestly don't know
