Re: gaming laptop help
I like my Asus G73. They have the G75 out that a member here has, and he really likes it as well.
AS for upgrading yourself... RAM / HDD are easy to upgrade. Get the best CPU/GPU/screen you can. Screens can sometimes be upgraded, but not always. My G73 originally came with a 1600x900 LCD, but I swapped it out for a full 1920x1080 screen; was a $120 upgrade.
