Need a gaming laptop
What I want is a laptop that I can play the following games on
Dayz - on medium to low settings
WOW - on low settings
Vice city - medium settings
GTA IV - low settings
And that multiplayer san Andreas game - on low medium settings
Then I would also like to maybe do a lil video editing and capture card stuff with my Xbox 360
And very lil bit of beat making stuff something like garage band
Computers i was look at are
MacBook pro the 13in with 500gb
A vostro 1500
And maybe a used alien ware
But i don't know anything or what im looking for so what are some good models of the alien ware
I would like to not spend more then 1000 but my friend just got a MacBook and i really like but not sure if itd be good for gaming if it is then ill spend the like 1500bucks for it

Don't pay that much for the Qosmio. It wasn't great when it was released, and that one is two gens old now. If it's any more than $450, it's too much, and I wouldn't even pay that.
Look at a Clevo W350ST or Lenovo Y510p for around the same price. The performance is much better than any Mac.P150HM | i7-2720 | AMD 6970m | 8GB 1600 RAM | 256GB Samsung 830 SSD | 1TB 7200rpm Hitachi | Arctic MX-4

Re: Need a gaming laptop
Your requirements are all over the place and minimal for the type of budget you have. You can easily get your hands on a decent gaming laptop with all the bells and whistles for under $1000. If you do go up to $1500, you should be able to get your hands on a laptop with a GTX 770/AMD HD 8970M which should allow you to play the games at maximum settings.
Look at a custom laptop from Mythlogic/XoticPC/PowerNotebooks/GentechPC/ProStar/LPC Digital, etc.
Ignore the laptop you have linked to.
The cheapest laptop I could find with decent gaming performance was this one.
