Hey bros, trying to get a gaming laptop for between $800-$1000, I know desktops are the way to go but can't get one at the moment no space for one on top of that need a montior to.
Just want to know if you guys know any gaming laptops that are a bang for the buck between the prices I listed.

Checked them out, from just the specs the lenovo or other laptops seem to be better.
Don't have space to talk since I don't know much.

I use my current asus g46vw has a 660m I plan to get rid of soon, I believe the games that work hardest that I play were bf3 and far cry 3.
Would like to play some titan fall. Anything from med-high settings on games

I'd try and atleast get a 860m, as it is the most current.

The question is can I for the price? I'm seeing 840m, and one of those laptops posted above has a 765m which seems to be better then the 840.
I like the lenovo because of the way it looks tbh, as I said just trying to get my bang for the buck. As long as its better then my current asus g46vw and new I'll be satisfied.

Why not buy it so it will last for a few years?

I like it, its going over a 1000.
Even at that wouldn't want to spend 1000, not because cheap just money issues. Thats why trying to get rid of my laptop, and not trying to put 300-500 down.

Even something that'll last 2 years is fine, by then I would have the room and money to get myself a nice desktop set up.
Just don't want my asus anymore.

Lenovo makes great windows machines and their build quality is usually top notch.

The only thing is 755m they're rocking.
Any real difference between 755m and 840m?

A little over $1000 will get you the SLI (dual-GPU) Y series laptops, I recommend them, still have my Y580 from a little over a year ago and love it. Even the models with a single GPU are great, just make sure you get the 1920x1080 version of it if you do. (for the Y410p, 1600x900)

As for desktops though, even with a space constraint, be aware that for $1000 you could build a decent mITX rig for around $850, and still have enough left over for a 23-24" 1080p monitor, Asus usually sells a selection of models for around $120-150. Keeping you in budget and giving you much more power.

This is the BitFenix Prodigy (~10"x16"x14", which is roughly like stacking 2 shoeboxes on top of each other), it's a great case, and keep in mind, this is on the big side for a mITX case, they can be much smaller.

Can't go over a grand, can't really go over 900 with tax tbh.
I would love a desktop for the fact the Money on a laptop would be better spent on a desktop and I won't have to worry about the issues I had with my laptop. The charger and charger port messing up. Beside space constraint there's portability which is not as much as a big deal but it's there.
I think I may get the Lenovo depending how much my laptop sells for and how much I have to put out I may get a lttile better.
Or possibly a desk top

You can usually get it less than the posted price if you call xoticpc. The link posted by BennyJr169 is a good one. Call them and try to negotiate the price to include tax and shipping within $1000.
Lenovo and other commercial laptops are different with custom laptops like Sager/Clevo, MSI and AW. You can always upgrade your CPU and/or GPU on that Sager if you want to on your own.

I see thanks for the info.
I'm leaning towards the Lenovo seems I won't have to pay out my pocket.
Upgrading it in the future isn't my concern by the time I want to update it I'll most likely being getting a nice rig going on.
