Yea so if you travel I would definitely pick a laptop. They make laptops bags so laptops fit pretty well in those laptop bags and some seem to be quite protective. I do not think you could just get the same benefit from a pc even with a mini itx.

Take a look at: http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2020688,00.asp
It has a few laptops and their parts side by side so you can compare. The list was made in 2015 so it should be quite updated.

If you want one to last for awhile, and at your price, I would go for an i5 and GTX 970 or 980. Also, another big thing you should look at is how cool it runs, a lot of laptops overheat after a few years of use. Unfortunately I have had to experience this and it really sucks haha. I'm not sure how someone could research how well the cooling is on a laptop, but if I had to buy one again that's definitely something I would want to look at.

You have to state your budget really someone on here could make you a build with $300 or $3000. However, it seems from your post you want a higher end laptop.

Here's another forum post with a similar question that you may want to look at: http://www.tomsguide.com/forum/68230-35-what-site-gaming-notebook-laptop-from

Some of the websites listed on that forum post has a laptop builder section, where you can choose what components go into your laptop.

Since you want a gaming laptop instead of a desktop I am assuming you want a portable laptop. Some gaming laptops are so big you might as well call them a desktop, so I am assuming you will want a laptop with maybe 15 inch screen size vs a 17 inch.

So, here's one that I would think you would like:

name: MSI GS60 Ghost Pro 3K
Processor: Intel Core i7-4710HQ @ 2.5 GHz QuadCore
RAM: 16gb
Storage: 1256 GB
Graphics card: Nvidia GeForce GTX 870M
Screen size: 15.6 inches
Weight: 4.4 lb
Battery: 3:17 hrs:min

Now, this build does not have the best and latest processor it is maybe 3-4 models down from the newest one I have seen. But, for a gaming laptop you probably are not going need the best processor out.

Pros: Lightweight design, 2 year warranty
Cons: short battery life, doesn't have the graphics card you want

Here's another link that has some good laptops that you can easily compare: http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2020688,00.asp
