A wonderfully specced gaming laptop for a good manufacturer. This will tide you over very well indeed and get you playing the biggest and best, on the go.

Yeah, the screen's refresh rate is only 60Hz which isn't ideal for faster games and twitchy shooters but it'll still serve you well, and the trade-off is getting the IPS panel which gives you better image quality and colors all over; an IPS panel is often reserved for those screen only considered the best gaming monitors too, so you know it'll look gorgeous.
