Looking for a laptop for gaming and for school


Right now I'm looing for a laptop to use for study at school and for games to play with my dad. Yesterday was my 16th birthday and I recieved $400, with the money I've been saving in the bank ($800). I finally think it is time to go and get what I want. So my total budget would be $1200. I just need help looking a suitable gaming laptop with the specs I'm about to mention below.


What should be in the laptop


My dad and I play a lot of games, ranging from Diablo 3 to torchlight 2. My dad's computer currently has a quad core of 3.8 ghz processor, 8 to 16 GB of ram, I would need this amount of ram due to video editing that I do in school. Adding to this I want the BEST video card, keeping in mind the budget.


What I have now


The specification in my current laptop are 2 GB of ram, dual core of 2.13 GHZ and a AMD Radeon HD 6300 for a gaming video card. Now you understand why I need an upgrade.

Note: Laptops are TERRIBLE for gaming, when compared with an equivalent desktop. $1200 will get you a very potent "gaming" laptop. But, that money will still be better spent on a gaming desktop. Laptops are compromise of parts in order to ensure mobility.


If you insist on a laptop, because of school and stuff, I recommend the Dell Latitude series. That is just my opinion, I am certain someone will post with another good alternative.
