Hello Udoknauer,

Using the site mentioned above, I've picked out two laptops which will meet your needs with the budget specified:

#1 - LENOVO Notebook Y520-15IKBN (€999)

- This Lenovo packs a high-end i7-7700HQ quad-core processor, which will perform very well in performance oriented tasks like, gaming.

- It also comes equipped with a upper-midrange GTX 1050 graphics card, which should allow you to play games comfortably at medium to high settings (Depending on the game).

- It also meets your storage requirement, coming equipped with a 128GB SSD + an additional 1TB HDD - Plenty of storage for games, files etc... Also, it comes with a content 8GB's of DDR4 RAM.

GTX 1050 benchmarks -

#2 - HP Laptop Power Pavilion 15-cb061nd (€1199)

- Yes, it comes in slightly over budget and actually comes with a similar spec setup than the 'Lenovo' above. However, seeing as you have a voucher, this could be something to think about.

- The difference between this and the 'Lenovo' simply comes down to the SSD and GPU aspects. The SSD is 256GB's (Plus the 1TB HDD), instead of 128GB's & the GTX 1050 having 4GB's of video memory, rather than 2GB's, which can make a noticeable difference, especially playing at 1080p - Most of the latest games go above the 2GB video memory threshold.

Laptop -

Overall, two good options to choose from. I hope this helps.
