Ok, you
might laugh. Here is a catch:

in the 1300$ pricetag you
have to include monitor and a small case with handles that let you to carry pc - i saw some as cheap as 50$, but there are some better ones like fang pc case; most of fancy cases cost around 150 or so bucks... I dont know about water cooling and stuff, i am noob at this stuff but i want to be pc user, but so far j find it hard to imagine that you can build stronger pc and buy monitor for same
ammount of money...

But hey; i heard pc parts are cheap (r9 290x, ahem)! :D

Lets see if pc master race can defend its pride and beat laptop nobles.

Oh, and i heard you should avoid best video cards for small cases because of heat? Is it true? Or should i install some cooling?

Add in $130 for a Corsair 380t, launches this month, and $150-180 for a monitor and it's still over $200 cheaper for a LOT more power with all premium parts, could have shaved 1-200 more off with bang-for-the-buck parts. Don't forget that Sager doesn't ship their laptops with an OS unless you tell them to so that's another $100 on top of the 1300.

Are you including an OS or not?

a more powerful pc is real easy. i read an article that showed a laptop i7 could barely compete with a desktop i3.

Now if you up this by $100 to account for Sager not shipping that $1300 laptop with an OS, you can either get a significantly better monitor or a 120GB Samsung/256GB Crucial SSD.

(you can also downgrade the CPU to an i3-4370, get both, and still have a more powerful desktop than that laptop)

I bought a i3 for laughs and the thing is freaking powerful. I haven't really played a lot of CPU demanding games but everything so far is basically 60fps when paired with a 290x.

I will be tossing it in my HTPC...I literally cannot think of a reason for more in a gaming environment....okay I can but it's good!

Nothing wrong with an i3, it might not be quite as good as an i5 but it definitely gets the job done.
Scientifically proven.
