Any suggestions for a gaming laptop for my 12 year-old stepson? He usually plays Minecraft, Gmod, Starbound. He says he can't play The Forest because it 'lags' on his current desktop. He has his heart set on a gaming laptop. Thanks for any advice!

Computer Discount - tell them what games he wants to play.
If you want top end, Alienware makes the best gaming computers. If you want affordable, Dell's XPS line is ok. Although reviews are mixed, I can say the gaming desktop I bought through IBUYPOWER.com was solid, and I know they make custom gaming laptops at good prices.
If you're willing to consider used computers, someone on one of the Toledo area garage sale Facebook groups had a few gaming oriented laptops for sale
Regardless though, if he wants performance, a desktop is a better bet and will last longer as you can buy and replace parts as you go to keep it current.
He said he wants a laptop. Is he carrying a desktop to a LAN party?
he needs to go outside and play something other that video games...but not on my lawn
