Lenovo Laptop IdeaPad Intel Core i7 1st Gen 740QM (1.73GHz) 4GB Memory 500GB HDD ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5730 15.6" Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit Y560(0646-54U)
Lenovo Laptop IdeaPad Intel Core i7 1st Gen 740QM (1.73GHz) 4GB Memory 500GB HDD ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5730 15.6" Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit Y560(0646-54U)

Pros: + super fast processor + quick start to windows + surprisingly useful preloaded software + very light + will run any game you throw at it on high settings + awesome price for what you're getting + plenty of USB ports and the HDMI port is clutch

Cons: - as others have said, fingerprint magnet - charger port in an inconvenient place - lenovo customer service is a joke

Overall Review: if you're looking for a gaming laptop for under 1k, this is your best bet period

Very nice card. You know what you're getting with a 1080.

Pros: Had this card for a few weeks and it's worked as well as I've come to expect from Gigabyte at this point. This is the 3rd card I've got from them and they've never let me down. Nice build quality. Backplate. 3 fan design seems to work well across all their cards. Runs at a brisk 45 degrees C or so at idle. Absolutely shreds games like Overwatch at 1440p/144 fps. I got this card for around $600 and looking at the other options in that range I would say this is your best bet.

Cons: LCDs are a little tacky but you'll never see them unless you have a see through case, in which case they're probably right up your alley.
