I am a student (Electrical Engineering) and working part time job (Night security guard ) 

So i need a small notebook for office with gaming options. 

I am looking for 14" display, SSD, rugged,  good price.

I am planning on playing in Gta V, MGS V, Mad max, etc..  on High.  


What CPU / GPU / i should be looking for?  also what companies provide good quality vs price notebooks?  



thank you,

Engineering = Intel CPU (i5 minimum, i7 preferred), nVidia Graphic card (Quadro preferred), 8GB of RAM minimum.


That said the Quadro card isn't good for gaming.


HP and Dell are both decent brands for this type of machine.


How much to you have to spend?  You might be able to get a decent machine for $1,000, but plan on up to $2,500 for a high performance laptop.  What you're actually looking for is referred to as a mobile workstation.
