I am looking for a gaming laptop. Something that can run things like Arma III or Metal Gear Solid 5 the new game which is coming out soon at a decent framerate.I also play games like League of Legends and Diablo III. Im kinda new to the PC Community because I also play on console. The specs I wanted to choose for these type of games are listed here.
4th Generation Intel Core i7-4710HQ Processor (2.50GHz 1600MHz 6MB)

UPDATE:
I would like some recommendations on the MSI Gaming Laptops. If so the price range could be up to 2000 USD maximum. Other than that I won't go any further with the price.
Maybe for example this one here? Even though the Nvidia 970M I said earlier is overkill. I think its fine. http://
This link is the MSI Laptop.

I live in Hong Kong in Asia. So that's why Im considering a gaming laptop instead of a pc. Because of space issues etc. So please give me some recommendations on whether or not should I get this laptop. People say Razer and Alienware have good laptops as well but I don't really trust their customer service. I hear people say Razer Blade laptops die really quickly and the stuff burns. Alienware is made by Dell I think. Dell in my opinion has some issues with their customer service and I think Lenovo would be the better option to go with. My grandpa also likes to use his computer for movie editing and such for his videos that he creates. I think with the 4K resolution he can see with more clarity and easily edit his movies with ease. Is this possible for slight movie editing as well?. I bet many people will rant on how a gaming pc is the better choice. But I don't have space. And even though there are small Pc boxes you can put stuff in it. You still have to connect it to a monitor and have a keyboard connected. Please give me you're thoughts and recommendations.

Btw for the MSI laptops I see that they have the Nvidia 970M graphic card which I personally think is a bit overkill. The display might not have to be 4k

I would try to get one with a 880m or 970m.. have seen some with 970m in sli

the strongest laptop gpu is a 980m but i am sure that would be really pricey

a 970m is not overkill if you want it to stay game worthy for some years with good settings

So is the MSI Laptop that I found ok? If so could you give me some pros and cons comparison with these two computers.

15.6 is already decent enough for me. But are you sure MSI would be the right choice? Have you had any personal experience with MSI or something because I would like to know.
