I can't make specific recommendations as I don't know the best places to look in the US, but there's dozens of great options at that price point. Look for an i7 8750H processor, 16GB of RAM, a GTX 1060 6GB or GTX 1070 graphics card, and a 256GB solid state drive paired with a 1TB HDD. Asus, MSI, EVGA and Gigabyte are my preferred manufacturers for gaming laptops, there should be plenty to choose from with your budget.

'Gaming laptop' is an oxymoron, get a proper PC innit. You can build one 10x better than any 'potatotop' with that budget. easily, especially if you go for refurbished and second hand components. I got my RX 580 for £60 off e-bay

I agree. I’m not sure why anyone uses the term gaming laptop, do they not realise how ridiculous that sounds.

While I definitely agree that desktops are the way to go, gaming laptops have come a long way in the last couple of years with the last generation or two of Intel and Nvidia's mobile CPU/GPUs coming in a lot closer to their desktop equivalents than ever before. I'm away from my desktop for 10 months of the year for work so I picked up a GTX 1060 based laptop for when I'm travelling, and I've yet to find a game that I can't hit 60fps and 1080p playing at high or max settings. Desktops are undoubetdly the superior platform for a huge number of reasons, but we've long since moved past the point where gaming laptops are considered a sh*tty product class that everyone should avoid.
