I’m thinking about buying this gaming laptop on a Black Friday deal for $999. Here are the specs:
The notebook has an Intel Core i7-7700HQ quad-core processor running at up to 2.80 GHz. The CPU is matched up with 32GB of DDR4 SDRAM and a 512GB SSD. Graphics are via an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 with 8GB of dedicated memory. The OS is Windows 10 Home, and the notebook has dual onboard speakers that support Dolby Audio. Other features include an integrated HD webcam, WiFi, and Bluetooth 4.1. Acer fitted the notebook with HDMI output and DisplayPort output. Connectivity options include a single USB 2.0 port, three USB 3.0 ports, and a Thunderbolt 3 port. Power comes for a 3-cell battery that has up to five hours of runtime, and the keyboard is backlit. The gaming notebook is not a lightweight 5.29 pounds.

So my big question is will this play new games like Total War: Three Kingdoms in high graphics? Also will it play some new games that come out in the next year on at least medium? How much more would a new gaming laptop be with around these specs? Any input would be appreciated.
 
1700 to 2000$ if you will get a new one with current generation hardware specs

The GPU is I think a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Max-Q (Mobile) which will provide like >50fps on max settings at 1080p in total war. Here some benches:

even a very demanding game like RDR2 will run smooth at medium to high at 1080p resolution ~60fps
just found a 1070 mobile, but you can add a view fps and have a look at this:

Thanks for the reply! I might just hold out on getting one since the mouse pad is above the keyboard. I’m also kinda looking for a laptop that doesn’t look so much like a gaming laptop. I need to be able to use it in a professional setting.
