Don't go with alienware they are so overpriced and you can get better elsewhere.

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

Ok so you want to look for laptops with these specs

Any i5 or i7 processor
A dedicated graphics card you can use notebookcheck to see how well the card will run certain games
At least 4gb of ram
However much memory you want if you can find one with an ssd that will make most stuff run faster a bit but its not necessary
A decent resolution I wouldn't settle for anything less then 1280 x 720

For what you want to use it for you could probably get one for around $750

The one rtewre123 found looks amazing for a laptop and the price is good as well.

To be quite honest with you gaming laptops do not last, you're better off getting a desktop.

Hey guys I am looking for a good gaming laptop that can be used for stuff like Microsoft Word and basic office stuff too. It has to be

1. incomplete sentence it has to be
2. less then $1500? you can buy a low-end alienware with that.
3. microsoft word and basic office stuff can be ran on computers earlier then windows XP. if you seriously just want a basic computer, go buy the cheapest one you can find.

If you want a gaming laptop make sure it is amd and its dual core or above but alien has goosd setups  for gaming laptops right in the price range

Completely true. Starting with the fact that I wouldn't buy a computer to play with it.

I'm using a Sony Vaio with Windows 7 OS and it hasn't dissapointed me yet! It was pretty cheap considering what I got for it and how it is performing, only € 1000,-. =)

But wait... recalculating it back to $ would make it $ 1294,50. Meh, still within your price range! ;)

be sure to check reviews because most laptops under that price are prone to overheating and hang ups. also do not over try overclocking a laptop because the fan and heat sink (or fansink) will be able to keep the CPU and GPU at 60C.
i would suggest a desktop and forget about portability because of this.

Agreed with desktop. Don't buy any other computer just for gaming. It's a waste unless you are very wealthy.
