Gaming, Drawing, Multitasking Laptop? Help


May 22, 2013
I need help deciding on a new laptop, my current one is just not doing it for me anymore - so many issues internally and externally. I'm not too tech savvy so bear with me. I'm looking for a high performance laptop that can handle multitasking, drawing programs like PS and Sai, and even some gaming like LOL. It has to be somewhat portable. I'm open to brands or going to a site that allows me to build my own (I just need help getting started and recommending specs). I would love it if I could do a payment plan so I can get it sooner but that's not a must.

1. What is your budget?
$1000~ range
or $1500~ if it allows payment plans

2. What is the size of the notebook that you are considering?
16 inches or so

3. What screen resolution do you want?
anything above 1400

4. Do you need a portable or desktop replacement laptop?
has to at least be portable, desktop replacement isn't necessary

5. How much battery life do you need?
2 hours or more

6. Do you want to play games with your laptop? If so then please list the games that you want to with the settings that you want for these games. (Low,Medium or High)?
League of Legends, Terraria, Minecraft, etc. on High.

7. What other tasks do you want to do with your laptop? (Photo/Video editing, Etc.)
Drawing and video editing. Internet browsing and college work.

8. How much storage (Hard Drive capacity) do you need?
300 GB or more

9. If you are considering specific sites to buy from, please post their links.
open minded

10. How long do you want to keep your laptop?
At least 3 years

11. What kind of Optical drive do you need? DVD ROM/Writer,Bluray ROM/Writer,Etc ?
Dvd, bluray not necessary but nice

12. Please tell us about the brands that you prefer to buy from them and the brands that you don't like and explain the reasons.
I want to stay away from Macs as I prefer PCs

13. What country do you live in?
United States

14. Please tell us any additional information if needed.
I have looked into alienware but I know you can get the exact same thing for less without the name. I have also looked into asus.

Oh my god that second one is exactly what I'm looking for. It has everything you would find in a $2000+ laptop for only $1200. I love that 8GB Ram and Nvidia Gtx. Thank You so very much, I have found my next laptop. :)
