I know this is the most economical gaming laptop but is this also best overall? or the safe bet all around?

Best? Nah. There's some with 1080s.

It's probably the best bang for your portable buck though

Because maybe he wants a laptop and not a desktop? Seriously why do you people keep telling others to buy a desktop when they're looking for laptop suggestions/opinions?

On Topic: The 1050 laptop GPU is a safe bet all around. The 960M 4GB version is also a decent way to futureproof for 2-3 years.

I disagree on the 960M

I've had it for 1.5 year, and it struggles on quite a few games to maintain decent framerates like skyrim special edition was unplayable for me


1060 and 1070, I think are the way to go for laptops

Bad idea it will struggle. Ive heard the laptop version of the 1050 is cut down too.
i5 4590, Gigabyte B85M-DS3H-A mobo, 8gb ram, samsung 850 evo 250gb ssd, Wd blue 1tb Hdd, Evga 500w psu, Corsair carbide spec01 case, Msi gtx 1060 6gb

Yeah I wouldn't get one, but I can understand since the 1050 uses much less power than the intel integrated, while producing much better graphics.

My Dell Inspiron w/e is called runs GTA 5 like garbage. It rarely (but it happens) stutters on HuniePop...freaking Huniepop. And I've got to tone down the settings for Rocket League.

It plays Skyrim and Dark Souls fine though...

I haven't looked in to the 10's, but for 9's I can vouch for 965m and up, however, I wouldn't go 960m. Seems like it should be close due to the number but it's not.

Edit:
Google'd it, both 1050 and 1050ti rank higher performance than 965m, so you should be fine depending on settings.
