    Gaming laptop advice for co-worker

    So a co-worker came up to me and asked on advice on buying a laptop. I asked what they would use it for and they said Diablo WoW and stuff (Rather have a laptop then a desktop because he can move about away from the mrs if she gets annoyed with him gaming lol). Its been a while since I picked up something for personal use laptop wise so thought i would post on here for advice and point him in the right direction. He said up to a 1000 (that might be pushing it).

    Thanks in advance.

    Better off buying a PC. He has the choice...sacrifice FPS and gameplay smoothness for mobility, or have the ability to upgrade and have the best his money can buy.

    As much as I agree with you on that from speaking to him it's pretty much a laptop option.

    That's pretty much what I advised him in the mean time before posting this thread.
