Smile Need help please :)

Alrighty
So I am new to this site but I heard from a friend that if you needed computer help this is where you can go to
Sorry if I'm posting this in the wrong forum btw but I just need some opinions
I'm looking to buy a laptop but I don't know which one to get
I am willing to spend about $700 and am looking for a laptop fit for a student who also likes gaming
If you know of a good deal for a laptop like this I would appreciate your input
thanks

Heres a few of the nicer laptops around your price range. Remember though that for anything under about $1100, you will not get a higher tier gaming laptop. The top of the line ones can be even $1500-$2000. These ones for your price range are still fairly good, but don't expect them to be able to max out newer games.

Thats a nice laptop Adzsask linked, but the screen is very small for gaming and todays standards imo. I'd put in a bit more money, and go with a 15.6" display size.
