Default Looking to buy gaming laptop. Help?

I'm looking to buy a decent gaming laptop... My budget is kinda low considering I'm out of a job and my current laptop is quitting on me and I start a computer class in college in 3 days. My budget is around $500-$700, less if possible... Anyway I'm not good with this kind of stuff so if you could give me recommendations I would greatly appreciate it!

Depends on what you consider "gaming". What kind of games are you looking to play?

Have you looked into used gaming laptops on Craigslist / eBay, or refurbished ones on Amazon/Newegg?

No spec requirements out for Destiny yet... what kind of older and current games specifically?

Well like I said, firstly check Craigslist to see if there's anything local to you that would do what you need.

I can check out stuff on Amazon/eBay/Newegg as well.
