Long story short, my iMac froom 2013 seems to have bricked. I will look into it sometime this week, but I doubt I'll get it working again. I purchased this iMac before I switched to PC gaming almost entirely.

I am looking for an affordable laptop or maybe even a desktop that can run Overwatch at 60 fps. As long as the framerate is smooth, I won't care about how the visuals look.

My current iMac's specs are: intel core i7, nvidia 780m (4gb), and 8gb ram.

I am not looking to buy something that will match those specs or anything. I played Overwatch on it on custom settings above 60 fps at 1080p just fine. There was only a dip in performance when there was so much chaos happening in Chaos Mayhem mode. But that was about it.

I guess my budget is around $700? Maybe a little more if I can get the money. This will only be temporary until I am able to build my own gaming pc late next year or something. Thanks.

Gaming laptops aren't that bad of an investment. As a person that is heading out soon to live on his own for college, I value the portability and ability to play with people in LAN parties with little to not trouble.

I got the dell 7567 for $750 because it was on sale ($50 off) and there was a $100 student discount that I used.

I wouldn't mind a gaming laptop that can last me a couple of years. I do like portability though especially when I have to take care of my pets. It's hard to play in my bedroom with my dogs in the living room.

Looks good! Affordable too. How does that i5 compare to the i7? I thought all i7 were better than i5?

I7s are better then I5s since they have 8 threads instead of 4. Which will help you in games that actually use them but the I5 will do just fine.
