I'm buying a laptop for college. I would like to be able to play games on it as well as the normal things Ill need for college.

I know very little about computers and even less about laptops. Is there a recommended website? Or build? Whatever that means.... Through some digging of my own I was thinking ASUS but that could be wrong.

My budget is $1,400
