gaming laptop?
thats like a PC console?

i suggest to not buy a laptop but a desktop.
a laptop you can hardly update hardware when it gets old.
after some time you wont be able to play all the games anymore. and then you need to buy another laptop.

whit a desktop you can always update your hardware so it can keep playing the latest games.

thats why a PC is better then a laptop or consoles.

I want to play stuff like TF2 and maybe a bit of CoD(sorry) at a pretty high fps and quality.

I suggest you buy a laptop that will not cost you a lot of money. somewhere around the 300-600$ range. Because it's a waste to buy laptops nowadays for gaming. The hardware gets outdated evenetually and you can't change them.

You could always look for a small PC too. Ik Alienware is overrated but the ''new'' 700-1200$ PC is nice and small like a console, and you can update the hardware or whatever. Though I wouldn-t buy it myself anyways.. xD

good luck

I wouldn't suggest this because from my experience a small pc case with high-end gear can get heating problems very easily.

Currently, the most cost effective gaming laptop that will also on high settings smoothly the games you've mentioned is the Lenovo Y500 with an SLI of GT 650M. The performance is something above GTX 670MX in most cases.

I know that Alienware makes gaming laptops. If a laptop is the only thing that you'd buy.
