I am not looking for a computer yet because I still have a year before college. I just want to know if it is possible. I am going to be majoring in Comp Sci and Computer so I will have a pretty nice laptop. I was just wondering is it possible to have a nice laptop for gaming as well as school work? I am going to bring my current laptop (HP pavillion g7) as well as buy another one. I was just wondering if it is possible for a laptop. I know it is possible for a desktop but I have never really heard of gaming laptops. I am not trying to find some sort of super amazing gaming specific laptop, just one that will allow me to play games like Battlefield 4 with no problems.

There are multitudes of gaming laptops, it just depends on how much you want to spend.


Most sites like cyberpowerpc, or ibuypower have custom laptops you can get, or you can get off the shelf stuff.


Actually MSI just released this monstrousity that rivals my current desktop, its a little pricey (starting at 1800) but this just gives you an idea of the power of things.

You may have a hard time finding a gaming laptop for under about 1,000-1,800$ I was just looking into laptops a bit ago myself cause I also have about a year until I'm heading away.

I was looking for something light-weight, long battery life, and a quick boot; with just enough power for note-taking, browsing, and word processing.

The ultrabooks looked amazing, but they sure are expensive. 

Though I would try to stear away from those for gaming, some people have gotten good results with them, but have terrible complaints of the lap-burning heat.

There just isn't enough space in those guys for the performance.
