for a simple reason , its a notebook and when it comes to notebooks the price to gaming performance is much higher then desktops , and onboard graphics s*cks for gaming , this one is much better for gaming but not the greatest

may i ask for what reasons you want a notebook? cuz if not any good ones you can get a far better desktop for the price

Im not going to laugh at that laptop from costco . If you NEED a laptop then get an alienware, but that laptop just wont cut it. Why not build one?
