Hi,

I'm looking to spend between $0-1,200 on a laptop to use for gaming. As far as I can tell the Lenovo IdeaPad Y510p [59405667] with GTX 750M SLI seems to be the best bang for my $. However, I have never purchased a gaming laptop before so I would like some input. My hope is to get a rig that will play most modern games on very high settings or close to that so I won't have to upgrade for awhile. Battery life and weight are secondary concerns. Also what external DVD drives would work with new games [I'm hoping to spend less than $50 on one]
So any input/suggestions would be appreciated! [aka correct my stupidity :) ]
