Specs I should be looking for in a gaming laptop (700-1000$) budget

Jan 18, 2019
1. What is your budget? 700-1000$ (Would like to include extended warranty in pricing, but will be fine without.)

2. What is the size of the notebook that you are considering? I have seen 15.6 as the most recommended one.

3. What screen resolution do you want? Full HD 1920x1080 minimum please.

4. Do you need a portable or desktop replacement laptop? It will be a desktop replacement. (Light travel for college if need be)

5. How much battery life do you need? Doesn't matter to me tbh.

6. Do you want to play games with your laptop? If so then please list the games that you want to with the settings that you want for these games. (Low,Medium or High)? Smite/Overwatch/BF1/Kingdom Come:Deliverance. Perfectly OK with running on medium settings.

7. What other tasks do you want to do with your laptop? (Photo/Video editing, Etc.) Light video editing. I like to record small clips with friends and upload it for private use. Along with combine clips from Xbox into longer videos. :)

8. How much storage (Hard Drive capacity) do you need? I already have a spare external 1TB Harddrive. Would like for laptop to come with an SSD.

9. If you are considering specific sites to buy from, please post their links. Links are down below. Would like bestbuy/amazon.

10. How long do you want to keep your laptop? 2-4 years maybe? I'm still using a laptop I bought in 2009 so I don't think I need to change too often.

11. What kind of Optical drive do you need? DVD ROM/Writer,Bluray ROM/Writer,Etc ? Fine without having one.

12. Please tell us about the brands that you prefer to buy from them and the brands that you don't like and explain the reasons. No loyalty/hatred for any brands.

13. What country do you live in? United States of America

14. Please tell us any additional information if needed. SO far Ive been recommended these laptops for mid-high range gaming by the guys over on reddit. Is there any laptops with similar/slightly higher prices that are simply better? Thanks :)

[strike]Is the Intel Core i7-8750H worth the extra 50$? Its shows it only being 2.20ghz while the Intel Core i5-8300H is 2.3ghz? I might just be being dumb though, I'm not very good with figuring out which CPUs are better.
Thanks :)

Edit: Also if I may ask, is there anything bad/good I should know about the brands? Dell and HP Omen. Thanks again and sorry for all the questions! :)[/strike]

Nevermind, just realized they don't have any option for my state and their support said they cant transfer items between stores. Really unfortunate.
