Hello,

I'm looking for a gaming laptop that can run games like COD & Battlefield smoothly.

Found this one online

[ Asus ROG GL502VM-FY185T Gaming Laptop - Intel Core i7-7700HQ, 15.6 Inch FHD, 1TB+256GB, 16GB, 6GB VGA - GTX1060, Win 10, Titanium Gold ]

costs around $ 1,850, relatively within my budget.

Would you recommend buying it ? or

Thanks

I'd say you can go easily with that. With that laptop you would not have problems in the future either. Going with a cheaper, you would be fine now but not in the future.

$1,850 what? USD?

If so, I'd probably avoid it personally.

Even looking at new laptops, you're exceeding the price of solid gaming laptops with 7th Gen i7's and 1070's.
~$1,400

Or even an 8th Gen i7 +1070:
$1,600

Some great deals to be had on open box/refurbished laptops too:
$1,250

$1,305

What are you addressing here?

"Cheaper" how so? Plenty viable option that are cheaper, while offering the same or substantially more performance.

While some of the laptops I linked come with a smaller SSD initially, most are comparably spec'd except have a stronger GPU.

Heck, even taking the cheapest of the bunch:

Remove/sell the 256GB SSD and drop in a 1TB M.2 drive and you'd still be ahead by ~$400 ?
