Hello community I would like to know which gaming laptop between 700€ and 1000€ has the best value for money?
I did some research and I came up with Lenovo Y520 Legion, any other thoughts?

Thanks,

CS:GO is CPU speed respondent at 1080p, but in your price range, a faster GHz processor is out of the question. However you can make up for it with the 6GB GTX 1060 video card that the Predator 300 has (most in the sub-1000€ category have at best a slower 3GB version).

Hands down I'd go with the Predator. Now you may want to look into getting one with a larger capacity hard drive over one with an SSD. It does however have a spare 2.5" drive bay for a second hard drive for your game storage. Laptop HDDs are cheap these days. The Predator 300 I saw only had a 256GB SSD. This is the US Amazon link I was looking at. The first review that pops up is a good one and describes how well it does in games>

It helps to tell us what games you plan on playing. At 1080p, some games respond to a faster CPU, other games respond better to a faster GPU. So there is an infinite combination of laptop configurations available, but it depends on what you play.
