You're right, graphics are the biggest thing in a gaming laptop. Everything else can be upgraded except for the gpu and that's also your biggest bottleneck so you've got to concentrate on that part the most. That's a very nice Gateway btw, excellent specs for only $1300. Gateway is still a good brand imo. They're a little more plain jane than some of the other ones but that's fine cuz they give you the best specs for the money a lot of the time. Cutting out all the little extras gives you a better value.

I thought the gpu's could be upgraded in some gaming laptops...

My friend has an alienware laptop and he has the option to upgrade them.
