Need Help looking for Gaming Laptop
Hello I am looking for a good gaming laptop under $1100. I'd prefer it to have an Nvidia graphics card and an i7 cpu. I will mainly be using it for Starcraft 2 and I would like the game to run smoothly on high detail settings. There are a lot of different options out there and I am just a little confused. I watched your NCIX tech tips episode on laptops but it didn't really help me in particular because both of the laptops you were showcasing were way out of my price range. Can anybody tell me some good options and/or brands?? Thank you for reading!

ASUS N53SV-DH71 Core i7 2670QM 15.6in HD 750GB 4GB GeForce GT 540 Win7 Silver HDMI USB3 Notebook - ASUS - N53SV-DH71
Done and done that model will be perfect if 15" is a option

Is any laptop GPU good enough to push a steady 120hz? I don't know if that should matter to you.

Check out these products:
ASUS K55VD-DS71 Intel Core i7 3610QM GeForce GT 610M 6GB 750GB 15.6in DVDRW WIN7HP Notebook Mocha - ASUS - K55VD-DS71
MSI GE60 0ND-047US Intel i7 3610QM 8GB 750GB 15.6in LED GTX660M 2GB DVDRW WLAN Win7 Notebook - MSI/MicroStar - 9S7-16GA11-047 ( but this one is $99.99 bucks more than your budget )

P.S- Both of these products does not have Full HD screens n if you prefer a Full HD screen rather than a powerful GPU, go on with the ASUS N53V-DH71 as told by Soullessone21.
