I've thought about getting my younger brother a laptop for this Christmas. Originally looked for a general purpose rig with highish battery life for schoolwork and whatnot, and came across this HP: https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIAE4N6ME6492&ignorebbr=1 Then thought about something with a somewhat decent gpu since he'll hop on Steam sometimes, I know I've seen him play TF2 for example. This Dell caught my attention for the price: http://www.microcenter.com/product/481826/Inspiron_15_5577_156_Gaming_Laptop_Computer_-_Black I was ready to pull the trigger on the Dell but figured I'd ask for any other suggestions. Features I'd like to retain are an ssd and backlit keyboard. Hoping not to take a real huge hit on battery life with a 'gaming' laptop.
