A friend recently requested that I help her find a "gaming laptop". I don't keep up on the "gaming laptop" market, as I normally do not recommend them. However, she is split 50/50 between work at a camp in the mountains and her home which is 2 ish hours away.
Anyways, I figure it does not hurt to ask for help.
Budget - $1000 (will "pony up" if needed should something exceed budget by a bit)
Display - 17" at her request, no specific resolution in mind.
She does medium end gaming mostly via steam(we're not talking BF3 ultra). Obviously I want to help her get the most bang for her buck gaming wise. She will not be purchasing anything for the next 2 years, so it has to last at least that long.
Suggestions welcome, thanks in advance.
