I wouldn't go to high on spec's because pc gaming is going to change dramatically over the next coming years with major players launching their game streaming services which will require less high end hardware from the consumerside.


Now there is an idea. A $10 monthly subscription to a Slith / Matrix streaming channel to have access to their entire catalog of games. Oh yeah baby!


Couldn't agree with you more!


And now Google Stadia is coming.... Who needs a high end pc or laptop?

As always, there are tradeoffs between streaming/local gaming; and it remains to be seen what those truly are as we get a fuller appreciation of them with time. For me, I'll stick to having games installed on my local PC. What with PC tech plateauing, it is becoming increasingly cheap and easy to build a powerful gaming PC.

I just picked up a Lenovo Legion Y7000 laptop at Costco (online) for $999. I know it's a bit above budget, but specs are good (not a ton of battery life, but it's not an ultrabook). Build quality is good and I like the matte screen.

Intel® Core™ i7-8750H Processor 2.2GHz
16GB DDR4 RAM
1.0TB 7200RPM SATA Hard Drive + 256GB PCle Solid State Drive
No Optical Drive

Graphics & Video:
15.6" Anti-glare IPS LED Backlit FHD (1920 x 1080) Display
6GB NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 Graphics




As per your tip, I just picked it up before the sale ended. Should be good gaming for a long time

Hope you enjoy. Plus Costco warranty and return policy rocks :)
