Does it definitely need to be a laptop? You'd get a lot more for your money if you put $1300 into a desktop pc

What job do you have that allows you to play games for that long? Surely you can be productive doing something else?

Field technician that works similiar to the Ambulance service. Based on response times rather than being productive.
So we sit and wait for a call in our zone and sometimes we don't get anything for the whole 8 hours...
