No, not really.

I bought my daughter a Toshibe with a 17" screen, P-M 2.0GHz, 1 GB RAM, 80 GB HD, and a X1600 graphics card... cost $1250 on a really good sale. I looked for a couple of months befoer I found the one I wanted for the price I wanted.

That's not to say you can't get lucky, but $1K won't get a good gaming lappy. A mediocre one, yeah.

Go to and search for laptops there. Keep looking to you find a good deal... prices change all the time.

Like Troter said, a good gaming laptop will run around $1300 usually.
You can build a mediocare compaq/hp one on their site for about $1k
