So I've been searching for a while and I would like to buy a laptop in the sub $1400 range, primarily for gaming.

The date of purchase would be sometime within the next month.

I've browsed several of the sites out there, Cyberpower, TigerDirect, Ibuypower, and I see a lot of flash, but a lot of price hikes for unnecessary things.

I'm looking for Intel build, Capable of handling Diablo 3, Starcraft 2, LoL, etc, at max settings without issues. I have a care for aesthetics as well so that does matter.

Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated as I tend to confuse myself by back to back comparing like-models at different companies.

I don't mind buying online or in person.

Thanks for your time!

One of these would be my recommendation. These will play about anything. They are excellent priced. A few of them have two Nvidia GTX750M graphics cards in them that will outperform just about any other laptop I have seen. It isn't as good looking as the one byogamingpc recommended but it has plenty of power and if you get the dual graphics card model it has better graphics.

i would recommend the newer model of this

dont get this model i know its not an intel laptop however it has the best graphics performance for the price by a mile almost all intel ones come with nvidia graphics and nvidia graphics are extremely over priced. Remember this is not the model i recomend there is a newer one with a 8970m and a a10 5750 i believe that would be great for your budget.
