Hi, a gaming notebook would be suitable as Battlefield 4 would be graphically intensive but the disadvantage would be the bulkiness of the laptop and its limited battery life. But if you can work around those disadvantages then the MSI GT60 is has the fastest graphics card on the mobile platform and the latest Intel i7 processor.

Toshiba Satellite Pro L850 is what I could recommend. It obviously can play your BF4 with 2 GB GPU and 8GB RAM and just costs almost less than half of MSI GT60. :D Both are 15.6" but I guess MSI has better GPU with GTX 780M. Toshiba is just your option in case you want a cheaper one. :D
