Hey guys,

I'm looking for a laptop to play games on, I have computer but need to upgrade the motherbord and CPU which is pretty much close to buyin a laptop. I'm not looking for a crazy high-end laptop something that is affordable like less then 1k. Basically I want to be able to play Star trek Online, Warhammer 40k (as well as Space marine) on it with little to know issue. I was looking at Asus Laptop that is within my price range. http://www.bestbuy.ca/en-CA/product/acer-acer-aspire-e1-15-6-touchscreen-laptop-black-intel-pentium-n3520-1tb-hdd-8gb-ram-windows-8-1-e1-510p-4459/10284458.aspx?path=01f719624545d41190706ebb58eb3cd4en02. I know Alinewere is the best but it's outta of

Basically I want a laptop for budget gamer if possible a nice Quad core with it.

That laptop doesn't have a graphics card, you will absolutely want dedicate graphics for any sort of gaming. The processor is also really low-end.

I disagree with your line of thinking that upgrade your CPU is the same price as buying a laptop. You will ALWAYS, no exceptions, get better specs buying or upgrading a desktop than buying a laptop, barring some crazy sale. I would strongly recommend if you can't afford to spend $1000 that you just build a new desktop. Don't bother upgrading, if your computer is that old it's probably not worth it. Besides, if you build a whole new computer, you can sell your old one for at least a small amount of money.

That being said, if you are set on buying a laptop, you're going to have to fork over at least $800 for anything worth the effort, imo. While there are some laptops around the $650 range with dedicated graphics, they're rather weak, and the processors are pitiful (1.6 - 1.8Ghz i7s).

On paper at least, the MSI GP70 or Lenovo Z710 is probably the cheapest I'd go, and that's $850 and still with a relatively weak graphics card. This is probably comparable to the laptop I bought a few years ago, and I only bought it because it was on clearance $200 off.

Moving up a bit, the Lenovo Y510p is probably the cheapest laptop with genuinely decent specs, and would be my choice if I was looking at a budget gaming laptop (As you can see, that kind of an oxymoron). I could keep going up the price ladder, but there isn't much else that's not a stone's throw from $1000. Also keep in mind you will notice a pretty big slowdown with a laptop HDD, at least I know I do on my laptop. If I was doing it again, I'd get one with an SSD. (Which you can add later, in my case I specifically bought one with 2 drive bays for that exact purpose later on)

I hope it doesn't seem like I'm bashing your decision to buy a laptop, it can certainly be a useful thing to have, but at your price range and for the reason you've given us, I just don't see it being a good buy. I don't want you to buy your laptop and then be disappointed when it feels slower than your desktop.
