If you are seriously into gaming then it's vital that you choose a laptop that is suitable for your needs.
What sort of spec do you need?
The very latest machines for 2017 are ones that are VR ready, as virtual reality is set to be the next big thing. NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070/1060 graphics and a quad core processor will set things up very nicely for the next generation of gaming experiences.
