Im not very loyal to any brand. My last laptop was an msi gt627 and i liked it. My wife dropped it and its broken which is why im in the market for a new one. I play a lot of mmos and also a few other games that are graphics heavy. Im pretty much just looking for the best laptop i can get in that price range.

That could work to. The QM CPU is based on Sandy Bridge.
