Looking to buy a 17" gaming laptop. I say gaming because my kids like to play the online game "Wizard101" found at https://www.wizard101.com/game ....which seems to really slow down our current AMD dual-core desktop. Trying to stay around $1000 but playing this game and other kids games are the priority. They might do some school work and internet surfing on there as well. I guess watching movies might be important also.

Trying to buy this weekend and want to stick to band name computers so quick replies are appreciated. (I know, I wish I had posted this sooner as well. LOL).

Thanks in advance.

Regards,
Bernie

Sorry, I didn't specify. Looking to stay with Intel (i5 or i7). I apologize.
