I'm looking to buy a new laptop for good gaming

by bjohnson0701 / February 21, 2015 12:55 AM PST

As the title says, I'm looking for a new laptop. As far as gaming goes I really only play games like rollercoaster tycoon 3, the Sims 3, tropico 4, simcity 3000 and citylife Xl. I do play a lot of youtube videos and music also. Does anybody have any suggestions or recommendations for a laptop that will play these games at high resolution? Preferably around the $800.00 range.

While the y50 in a stripped model came close, it was 900. Maybe next year?

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
