Thin Gaming laptop around 1000$-1200$

Feb 17, 2018
I am looking to buy a laptop for college. I'm mostly running around the country doing internships and I need a portable gaming laptop to get a break sometimes when it gets kinda acidic above the shoulders a la mcconaughey .
I'll be mostly using my hp spectre for presentations but in case it fails due to some reason I'd like this machine to step in and I don't think my clients would like to see ugly bulky ones lke the one below,c_limit/Dell_TA.jpg

I was looking at the msi stealth series. Basically any laptop that I can throw in my backpack along with the spectre should be good enough. I'm cool with refurbs and used ones.
Any suggestions are most welcome and greatly appreciated
