Hi guys, would like some recommendations for a notebook for school use and also gaming. Gaming standards such as being able to run on High settings on games such as Starcraft 2, World of Warcraft, etc games without any performance problems.

Budget is around >$1.5k, is that enough? Would like to be able to watch movies. At least 500GB too.
My friend recommend me this Sony Vaio 15.5" Laptop ,it costs$900.i am not sure for it ,so i need your opinions about it .

Quite new to laptops so would need some recommendations, and also, I don't mind a lesson or two about finding a notebook that suits my expectations, could learn something new too.
