    If the SP4 is going to be able to play games coming out in the next few years it's probably going to be at low resolutions and framerates that are barely playable.
    lol. no it will not. sheesh. You have obviously never even used an SP4. I have an 3 year old HP Envy 17" high end 3D laptop (i7 3.4Ghz) that can play just about anything and run any program I throw at it. It has TWO graphics cards/GPUs in it! And my SP4 can run anything it can and some things faster and it has a much higher resolution.

I didnít end up doing and yesterday mine finally died... well it gets to the desktop and shuts down again 😞 sooooooo big question what would you recommend now? It needs to last at least 3 years and as before run ganes like dragon age inquisition and the new mass effect game which I will get soon 😊 the links that were up the products donít exist any longer. Again looking at max $1500 au

    Razer makes very good gaming devices (so laptops, pcs and peripherals).
    Intact if you have the cash their laptops that come with an external graphics card unit at a great option.

    However for what you need (and kinda knowing your price range I would look at something like these two (which are both Core i7 cpus and decent graphics.... A core i5 will be cheaper but not as good) :

    You can always get a good external HDD for it.
