A lot depends on the games you plan on running…Check their spec and lean towards their recommended configuration. For my gaming laptop I have an Acer with an i5, 8g ram and a GeForce 940MX 4 gig dedicated video ram. and a 1TB drive It runs most Steam games I play just fine like Skyrim, Farcry, Planet Coaster, Left 4 Dead, Crysis ans STALKER. Got it off amazon for about 600.00 

If you can afford it, go with an i7 and 16g ram. and a SD drive. The SD drive will be slightly better performance but a large capacity one can still be a bit pricey for an upgrade.

    That depends on budget. Look for Advanced GPU make Laptop. Select the more steady OS and for smooth execution, Mac OS is a great choice. Look for GTX 970 with gtx1080 paired including Intel i7 and of course decent amount of Ram not less than 8GB & a 1TB / 256GB HDD/ SSD.

    There is no limit of expenses. If you are able to expense, you can go for highest resolution gaming laptop and of course for best brand. Also consider for 7/8th Generation laptop or latest one.

    Without knowing which games and perhaps some basic usage statistics, the laptop might be anything. The range of games is wider than the range of laptops, and a casual gamer needs far less than a professional gamer.

    Hardcore gamer should opt for following configurations in their laptop:



    There should be high-end processor.

    Separate keyboard and mouse.

    And, yes not to forget advanced graphic card in-built.

    If you want longer battery life look for a system with a SSD. They have less heat issues and better performance. The do cost a bit more than a traditional drive so you won't get the same storage for the same budget. You have to decide what is more important, the cost vs performance.
