Hey guys, I'm looking to buy a laptop for gaming and for some light-mid Photoshop work.
I've been looking online myself and they're either too expensive, or don't have the specs I'm looking for.
Specs that I prefer it has:
- Great video card w/ 3 or 4 VRAM
- Great CPU
- 16GB of Ram (must)
- Good build structure

I don't mind the screen, or how heavy it is.
Also I don't like Dell or HP so no to those.

If you guys would help me out that'd be nice ^^

This Asus ROG destroys everything else above, due to the 980m versus 970m in all the rest. I own it and it's great. Heavy and the battery life is poor, but performance is top-notch, and it runs VERY quiet and cool.

I play the new Doom at 1080p and everything maxed on Ultra, 8xTSAA, at an average of 75fps, which is the limit of that monitor (overclockable to 100hz). At 4K with everything on Ultra, the average fps is about 25fps. Turn the detail down a bit, and it's an actual 4k gaming machine...

The MSI GS72 Stealth laptop: https://www.amazon.com/MSI-GS72-Stealth-042-NOTEBOOK-i7-6700HQ/dp/B01AC40P76/ref=sr_1_64?s=pc&ie=UTF8&qid=1466120837&sr=1-64&keywords=laptop&refinements=p_n_feature_five_browse-bin%3A13580790011%2Cp_n_feature_four_browse-bin%3A2289792011%2Cp_n_operating_system_browse-bin%3A12035945011%2Cp_n_condition-type%3A2224371011%2Cp_36%3A-160000

Note that the two MSI laptops listed are a little on the loud side when under heavy workloads.
