Looking for a $500 - $1,000 gaming quality laptop


Jan 21, 2014
I've been looking all over online for laptops that fit my needs but am unsure which one to pick. I need a decent webcam, good brightness, back-lit keyboard, decent processor for gaming (2.5ghZ and up?) 8gb ram, and HOPEFULLY a graphics card instead of integrated.

I'd like to keep it as within my budget as possible and it'd be awesome to keep it below $1,000 if at all possible. I have $500 to blow right now.

I'd be playing games and mmo's like WoW, W101, Spiral Knights, Skyrim, Secret World, etc... I dont care as much about graphics as I do about playability. If everything is smooth and not laggy I will be perfectly happy.
