If you can wait, I would recommend waiting for the Acer Aspire X 15 or Lenovo Y520. Both are coming out soon, and will use significantly better quality (IPS) displays.

I've had a Dell XPS, and currently have an Alienware M18x. I've had issues with the video cards in both of these PC's. Maybe it's a flaw with Dell, maybe it's just those two specific laptops that have had issues, not sure. I think I'll shy away from Dell from now on. It seems both times I had issues were right after the warranty expired. I even had to go as far as removing the video cards, and "baking" them in the oven. It worked.... for a little while, then I would have to do it all over again.

At the current moment, the Dell Inspiron 15 7000 is the best in that price range. But... if I were in your position I would wait a bit. The  Lenovo Y520 is my recommendation. Out of the Dell, Acer, and Lenovo, I would definitely go with the Lenovo. Just personal experience, I have had way more quality issues with Dell and Acer as opposed to Lenovo.

I definitely think you should save up and wait for the Acer Aspire X; it's got a gtx 1060 and is only slated to be $1000 I believe. Everything under $1k for the most part has some really off putting flaw aside from the cheaper Clevo/Sager model if I remember correctly.

Zaw, for an economical gaming laptop for $1049, there is the MSI GE72VR APACHE PRO-010 17.3'' i7-6700HQ 12GB RAM, 1TB HDD + 128GB SSD, and NVIDIA Geforce GTX 1060 6GB VRAM with IPS display.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/R-MSI-GE72VR-APACHE-PRO-010-17-3-i7-6700HQ-12GB-1TB-128SSD-GTX-1060-6G-IPS-/352017457834

 

Even more economical from the huge seller ADORAMA for $859.99 new, is the MSI GP62MVR LEOPARD PRO-248US 15.6" Full HD IPS, i7 6700HQ, 8GB RAM, 1TB HDD, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 3GB VRAM

http://www.ebay.com/itm/MSI-15-6-Full-HD-IPS-Gaming-Notebook-Computer-Intel-Core-i7-6700HQ-2-6GHz-/371907210881

 

These are similarly priced to new 1050 TI laptops, however perform much better. For example, Mass Effect Andromeda 1080p Ultra on a GTX 1060 is 54.6 FPS and on a GTX 1050 TI is 27.9 FPS. Battery life can always be extended with performance settings and frame limiting to half the refresh rate.

      Hello Everyone!
       
      I have problem with VBIOS/EEPROM(?) after installing of a GTX1060 N17E-G1-A1 GPU NVIDIA Graphics Chipset (old one has temp. damages). 
       
      I  modified new 416  and old 391 nvmii.inf file and try to install drivers, but every combination gave me no success. There is only yellow triangle in  Windows Device Manager :|
      Is there a way to bring my card to life?

      Has any company out there launched a laptop with an external MXM port? 
       
      Just curious since with the boom in the gaming laptop market and some companies launching eGPU thunderbolt enclosures, isnt the MXM faster?
       
      Is it because of licensing issues? or hardware problems?

      It's locked & hidden by default, but I've got an i7 8700k & I'd like to utilise the intel 'quick sync'/hardware acceleration in Adobe encoding in order to speed up rendering. You don't need to have a display connected to it for it to work (i believe), but it's really fustrating how it is locked out, as it means I'm missing out on quite a useful time saving feature.
       
      Is there any way to activate or mod this?
       
      Thanks!

      Hello everyone!
       
      So on occasion I host gaming nights over at my house, and usually end up hooking my laptop up to a big TV so me and a couple friends can all play all kinds of multiplayer games (either emulated or off of steam).
       
      But I was recently thinking that it would be fun to get a projector set up, so that we could play on a huge blank wall in my living room.
       
      With that being said: I'm new to purchasing projectors, so I'm not familiar with what kinds of features/specifications I should be looking for (and I'd like to keep the cost down if it's possible).
       
      So I was wondering if anyone has any advice for me on what to look for in features/specifications, affordable places to buy from, or just general info on what I'm trying to do. 
       
      Any help would be super appreciated!
