Alright, I'll look into finding you a gaming laptop between 500-750, leaning towards the 500 mark.Thanks for linking those. I think there was a slight miscommunication though. If I could afford to spend $1k, I would just build a desktop and buy her a desk and chair to go with it. If its a REALLY good deal, I could spend $1k on a laptop, but I'd really rather not spend that much. Ideally, I'd find something in the $500 range (gaming laptop, $500, laugh, i know...) and could convince myself to spend up to $750. But spending $1k is REALLY gonna hurt my bank account at this point in time. That being said, my financial situation may change in the not too distant future, so I' am taking the recommendation on the $1k laptops seriously. But, ideally, something a little bit lower in price range would be ideal. Really, she doesn't play any cutting edge games. She mainly play skyrim, and Fallout:new Vegas. She has bought games like Bioshock: Infinity, but her current laptop (with its 512MB integrated graphics) just won't run those at a playable framerate.
tl;dr - Those are great computers I might be able to afford, but I'm looking for something a little bit cheaper that will run Skyrim with maybe one or two graphics mod at a decent framerate.
