I am interested in purchasing a gaming laptop, but I am a novice in this area. I have stuck with consoles throughout my whole life and know little outside of the feedback of a few friends. I would like to stay in the $1000-1200 range, as more is difficult for me to justify. I really enjoy games such as Skyrim, Fallout, Fable, and other similar role playing games, as well as the NBA 2K series. I am looking for the best performance for the money that I intend on spending. I put together the configuration below and would greatly appreciate feedback. Thanks in advance.
