Around a year and a half ago, i got this laptop(listed in my specs) and it ran everything on atleast medium with the exception of very heavy hitters, Can play fifa14 maxed out apart from AA at solid 60fps on my res, things like tomb raider(newest one) on tweaked high at 35+fps mass effect 3 etc comfortably. cost me a whopping 300 new. I agree, all top end gaming laptops will be dearer than a desktop equivalent.

I do o.k. with my gaming laptop (my only machine btw, see my specs) but as mentioned by almost everyone it COST! I'll be retiring her this year I think, for an even MORE expensive one lol. I travel extensively though and need a laptop for that reason, so if you can afford it and really want to game then a tower would probably be best for you.

Unless one custom makes a Laptop with lots of tricky cooling it will never compare to a quality built Desktop.

Actually, I guess I should build a custom PC for all my needs but I don't think I'd be needing one urgently. Currently, my Lenovo is the best thing I've got. Also, my old pc was partially custom built. I bought a Samsung CRT monitor a keyboard, mouse, webcam separately and the CPU case and all the stuff inside the CPU case already fitted inside. It was pretty good for gaming in the good ol' days.

I just built a mini-ITX build that would be perfect for space concerns, LAN parties and or even portability and it will run with with almost all full towers and is much more power and space efficient. There are tons of options and what ever direction you decided we're here to help if needed.

And some older games. GTA IV would atleast do it but the game entirely takes the whole CPU.

GTA SA or Vice City maybe, but not GTA IV. GTA IV is older, but it's still a system hog. If it does run, it won't run well enough to be any fun. A laptop like that will barely be able to run Saint's Row 2, much less something like GTA IV.
