Hi!

I'm currently looking for a gaming laptop but I'm not sure which one would be best for me.
Things I planned on doing with my laptop:
-Play League of Legends, Smite and other MOBAs
-Play various games on Steam
-Animate with Flash
-Draw with Paint Tool Sai and Photoshop

I would like a laptop that would be strong enough so that I could play all the games I like without having to deal with low fps problems. Also, can a gaming laptop support my creative needs aswell? Budget wise, something around 1500$ would be nice.

Is a laptop meeting those needs/characteristics exists?
Is my budget realistic? Do I need more money?

Thanks for your time, oh wonderful people of the internet :)

These are probably overkill for you but if your willing to spend $1500 you might as well get something really special for that price range. Sager is pretty competitive when it comes to product offerings. Quality is on par or better than most other brands as well, be aware than gaming laptops are normally heavier and get less battery life.
