Thanks in advance to anyone who reads this. In another thread I was considering a desktop upgrade but after some suggestions I don't think I can build it on my budget.

So I am considering going the laptop route but I still have a budget of around 500 to 600$. Any more than that and I'll be in the doghouse if you know what I mean.

I want a laptop that is going to run the latest gaming software. I don't need it to play it on ultra high settings. After some research I think my goal is out of reach but who knows. I've been looking at some of the Black Friday ads but I haven't seen too many laptops that are going to be worth investing in for gaming.

If anyone comes across a good deal let me know.

 It will run Battlefront and most newer games smoothly on med settings and most of the more intensive titles on low. That's a great deal on that setup if it's new.
